The Homeland beauty's husband, director/producer Austin Chick, recently filed for divorce to end their three-year union, citing irreconcilable differences, and now the single mum is rumoured to have found comfort in the arms of MCKenzie.

A source tells Life & Style magazine, "Their chemistry was instant", adding of Baccarin's divorce proceedings, "She doesn't want to involve Ben. But he's fallen hard for Morena and will be there to support her."

The Brazilian American shares a 20-month-old son, Julius, with Chick. He is seeking joint custody and seeking spousal support.

Representatives for the actors have yet to comment on the romance report.
