Actress Claire Danes is Expecting her Second Child and She Nearly Slept Through the First Trimester
Claire Danes recently confirmed she was expecting her second child with husband Hugh Dancy. The 39-year-old actress and her hubby are already parents to their 5-year-old son Cyrus.
The Homeland star not only kept the baby news from her fans but also her co-stars as well, and it wasn’t an easy task. The actress was in the midst of filming the hit Showtime show when she was in her first trimester. She appeared on the Jimmy Fallon Show and told the late-night host about a particular incident in the early stages of her pregnancy while working on set.
“I was filming during the first trimester which is kind of my least favorite phase because you just feel horrible. You feel just rotten and you’re not allowed to say why.”
She went on to reveal, “I was filming quite a lot but just inadvertently falling asleep all the time. And it was embarrassing.”
“I face planted onto this crocheted bag in-between takes. It was time for my close up…and I sit up and I have this crocheted indentation on the side of my face. It looked like I had third-degree burns.”
She continued recalling the incident, “It was intense! And they were massaging my face, they had to take out the blow dryer. I halted production for a good half an hour. I just felt like an idiot. I was like, ‘No I wasn’t up on a coke binge all night.’ Your body’s going through a lot!”
Danes is now enjoying the blissful second-trimester stage and is finally over the humps of what the first trimester brings, “I’m feeling good. I’m in the cruisy second trimester period.”
She continued, “It’s just chilling in there. It gets a little excited when I have a chocolate bar. It’s moving and kicking. I love that part. It’s like a firework show. And a little creepy. It’s like an alien being in there! I’m cohabitating!”
Congrats on the joyous news Claire!
