Claire Danes: Motherhood Wil Be A “Profound Change”

During a Thursday appearance on Anderson Live, Claire Danes says that impending motherhood is sure to be a “profound change.”

“There’s no way of anticipating what that’s going to mean for [husband Hugh Dancy and me], but we are very excited,” the Homeland star, 33, says. ”We are going to love this person, I know that.”

As it turns out, her mother’s past profession will help her in the coming years.

“My mom ran a toddler school in our loft; I grew up in the city,” she explains. “So I grew up with 1-and 2-year-olds all throughout my childhood, and I know about early childhood development — that particular window I am pretty educated on.”

She adds: “Anything before and after I might have some trouble.”

Admitting she has “no patience,” the mom-to-be has found out the baby’s gender — but the rest of us will have to wait. “It’s important to keep a little something to ourselves because we are so public,” she says.

In respect of her privacy, Cooper surprised the actress with two onesies with a Homeland twist – one pink and one blue – each reading CIA — “Cutest Infant Alive.”
