Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy: Baby on the Way!


While we still have to wait until Sept. 30 to find out the fate of Carrie Mathison on Homeland, we know what’s in store for Claire Danes: the Golden Globe-winning star is going to be a mom. People has confirmed that the 33-year-old actress and her husband, 37-year-old actor Hugh Dancy, are expecting their first child together. The couple, who wed back in 2009, worked together on the 2007 drama Evening. Though there’s no official from Showtime, a spokesman told the mag that Danes’ pregnancy is not expected to have an impact on the filming of Season 2. (Either that, or Nicholas Brody is about to get some intense news.)

While Danes (also known for her additional work on My So-Called Life, Romeo + Juliet, The Family Stone, and Temple Grandin) will be busy with Homeland and impending motherhood, her hubby, the UK-born Dancy (who has appeared in Black Hawk Down, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Adam, and Our Idiot Brother) will be preparing for fatherhood while working on his own series, the upcoming thriller Hannibal.
