Claire Danes Welcomes Second Child With Husband Hugh Dancy
Congratulations are in order for Homeland star Claire Danes. A rep has confirmed that the actress gave birth to her second child with her actor hubby Hugh Dancy.
The Associated Press reported that the 39-year-old actress gave birth to her second son on August 27. Danes was seen out and about just four days after giving birth on the streets of New York minus a baby bump.
Danes had revealed herself that she was expecting another bundle of joy back in April during an interview on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show.
Claire confirmed she was soon to be a mother of two, “I am pregnant. I’m seriously prego … I’m deep into my second trimester.” She also added that the pregnancy was “planned.”
Danes went on to explain to Stern’s listeners, “We’ve been wanting another kid for a while, and it happened.”
The Golden Globe winner revealed back in June that she was planning on taking some time off of work once she gave birth to her second child.
“I am definitely with child. No, I feel OK. I’ve been doing a bit of traveling and tap dancing, as I call it, which is my term for letting people know that I’ve been making work and encourage them to see it,” Danes told reporters at the Homeland FYC event on June 5. “Pretty soon I get to retire for a little while and just be pregnant, which I look forward to.”
Danes revealed in a 2013 interview for Elle magazine that she always looked forward to becoming a mother and is grateful for the timing in her life that her wish came true.
“I’ve always wanted to have kids, but I’m glad I didn’t until now. When I was thinking about working and being a mother originally, I was really nervous about it. I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn’t suit me. I feel so fortunate in that I’ve had this arrow-straight focus that I wanted to act.”
Danes and Dancy, 43, met on the set of the 2007 film Evening. The couple married in 2009 and welcomed their first child, a son named Cyrus in 2012.
