In March of last year, the duo welcomed their first child together: daughter Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan, now 15 months.

The Deadpool actress, who is mom to 3-year-old son Julius with estranged husband Austin Chick, said of McKenzie’s support before the pair welcomed Frances, “Ben’s the sweetest… It’s very nice to work with your significant other, especially when you’re pregnant because you know you’ll get some extra TLC and get taken care of.”

“[Being a father] is something I’ve wanted for a long time,” McKenzie, 38, told PEOPLE at the Gotham premiere ahead of his daughter’s birth in 2016. “I’m excited about all of it, poop, diapers and everything!”
