McKenzie, 38, first met the Deadpool beauty back in 2014 on the set of Gotham. The actors, who play James Gordon and Leslie Thompkins, respectively, started dating a year later.

The two welcomed their first child together, a baby girl named Francis, this past March. At the same event on Monday night, The O.C. alum McKenzie joked with E! News about his little one.

“She’s about to crawl. We’re dreading that,” he said. “But she’s great, and it’s wonderful to have family around and celebrate the holidays together.”
