Morena Baccarin’s divorce is going to cost her.

The “Gotham” actress has reportedly been ordered to pay nearly $23,000 a month to her estranged husband, Austin Chick, in spousal and child support payments, according to TMZ.

The gossip site said Chick will receive $20,249 in spousal support and $2,693 in child support for their 2-year-old son, Julius. In total, Baccarin will need to fork over more than $275,000 a year to her ex, a film director and screenwriter, until their son turns 18.

Baccarin, 36, and Chick, 44 were married for three and a half years before he filed for divorce in July.

While he cited irreconcilable differences, the reason for their split was made apparent when Baccarin filed court documents requesting full custody of their son. In the filing, she revealed she was expecting a child with “Gotham” co-star Ben McKenzie.

The Brazilian-born actress revealed she also plans to marry her co-star once her divorce to Chick is finalized.

In September, a Los Angeles judge allowed the actress to move her son with her to New York where she shoots “Gotham,” while Chick remained in Los Angeles. The judge ruled that the pair would share joint custody.

According to reports, Chick changed his mind about co-parenting their son after learning that Baccarin was in a relationship with McKenzie.

The judge recently ordered Baccarin to pay for her husband’s apartment during his stays in New York to visit his son. The actress then asked the judge to deduct that amount from her spousal support – but the judge denied her request.

The divorce proceedings are still ongoing.
