Morena Baccarin is expecting her first child with Gotham co-star Ben McKenzie and still in the midst of divorcing estranged husband Austin Chick.
The 36-year-old actress is reportedly delaying a deposition with attorneys from both sides due to her ‘high-risk pregnancy,’ TMZ is reporting.
According to the news site, Morena says she’s on ‘doctor-ordered bed rest,’ and will not be able to fulfill the request until ’30 days after she gives birth.’

Morena’s estranged husband Austin, a film director, is pushing for the legal meeting sooner rather than later to settle their divorce details.
Austin filed for divorce from the Homeland actress in June of 2015 after three years of marriage, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’, E! News reported.
The former couple have a two-year-old son named Julius together.

There are still issues concerning property, support and child custody that need to be settled, according to TMZ.
While she’s just as keen to get the divorce over and done with, Morena feels a drawn-out deposition in her present condition is out of the question.
Morena is reportedly asking for an ‘immediate termination of the marriage,’ TMZ claims.
