Baccarin, 39, revealed to Us Weekly at the Framing John DeLorean premiere at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival that the couple prefers “sticking to the simple things.”

“Dinner, movie. Just having a cocktail at the end of the night when the kids have gone to bed, and having a chance to reconnect with each other,” she told Us at the time. “I think that’s more of a female thing, maybe than a male thing, but just stealing moments throughout the day. Even when there are no words spoken, we just kind of look at each other sometimes. You know you are, like, in it together.”

The Deadpool star also shared a funny story about their 3-year-old son, Frances.

“This was not recently, but when my son was about 2, he was having a hard time going to sleep and we’re laying in the dark,” Baccarin explained. “I was laying with him, trying to get him to sleep and out of nowhere he said, ‘I love boobs.’”

In July 2017, Us reported that the Flash alum married her 40-year-old Gotham costar in New York. They tied the knot after welcoming their son in 2016 and getting engaged later that year.

After exchanging their vows, the O.C. alum appeared on Harry, where he revealed to host Harry Connick Jr. that the couple’s wedding anniversary falls on the same day as another very special occasion.

“We wanted to get married at the [Botanical] Gardens in Brooklyn, which was beautiful,” he admitted at the time. “When we wanted to book it, which was over a year in advance in our defense, the only date available was my wife’s birthday.”

Baccarin is also the mother of 5-year-old son Julius, whom she shares with ex-husband Austin Chick.
