Pregnant Morena Baccarin admits she just wants to 'sleep all day'

Gemma Strong

Morena Baccarin is due to give birth any day now – and by her own admission, walking the red carpet at a fan event for Deadpool this week was not her idea of fun. "I want to sleep all day and not be in a dress and heels," the 37-year-old told E! News as she posed on the red carpet with her actor boyfriend Benjamin McKenzie. "My waters could break right now!"

The Homeland star might be counting down the days until her baby arrives, but she did reveal that her second pregnancy has gone quickly – thanks to her three-year-old son Julius.

Morena Baccarin admitted she just wanted to "sleep all day and not be in a dress and heels"

"I'm definitely less nervous, but it goes by a lot quicker because you're chasing after a toddler," Morena told People magazine. "There's not a lot of resting going on. I don't feel worse, it's just been very different."

The Brazil-born actress, who showed off her blossoming baby bump in a LBD featuring lace sleeves and embellished detailing, isn't the only one who is excited to meet the new addition. "(Julius) gets it, that something's going on there," she added. "He is very sweet about it. His world is about to change."

The new arrival will be the first child for Morena and boyfriend Benjamin McKenzie

In September it was revealed that Morena and 37-year-old Benjamin – who appear together in the hit US TV series Gotham – were expecting their first child together, just days after their romance went public.

The actress and her film producer ex Austin Chick welcomed their son Julius Setta Chick in October 2013, before he filed for divorce in July after three and a half years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.
