Sevigny became concerned that Mackovic, who has been director of Karma Art Gallery since 2011, might not be able to join her in experiencing the birth of their child on Monday, when New York Presbyterian hospitals announced that effective immediately expectant fathers and others would not be allowed to be present for the birth due to the coronavirus. "At this time, no visitors including birthing partners and support persons are permitted for obstetric patients," the hospital website says. "We understand that this will be difficult for our patients and their loved ones, but we believe that this is a necessary step to promote the safety of our new mothers and children."

In January, TMZ estimated that Sevigny and Mackovic's baby would be born in late May or early June. It will be the first baby for each of them. In 1993, author Jay McInerney, who wrote the book "Bright Lights, Big City," which was later turned into a movie starring Michael J. Fox, helped propel Sevigny into "It Girl" status after he saw her walking around New York City and wrote a seven-page article about her for The New Yorker, calling her one of the "coolest girls in the world." Walter Cessna, who wrote for Paper at the time, agreed, and said, "She's definitely the girl of the moment."

Sevigny's partner of one year is the director of Karma Art Gallery in NYC, which is currently showing works including a playful neon structure from Alex Da Corte, "For a Dreamer of Houses," on loan from the Dallas Museum of Art. The Croatian-born gallery director is private, according to Page Six, which said that both Mackovic's Instagram and LinkedIn accounts were devoid of current photos. The tabloid The Sun spotted the two taking a stroll on a rainy day in New York City in early January.

In 2008, Sevigny told The New York Times that the Victorian-era fashions from the 1975 movie "Picnic at Hanging Rock" served as inspiration for her unique look in an interview that occurred shortly after she landed the role of Nicolette Grant in the HBO series "Big Love," which focused on Mormon polygamists. Most recently, Sevigny starred as a small-town police officer faced with a zombie apocalypse in Jim Jarmusch's comedy horror film "The Dead Don't Die," which kicked off the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
