Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy Are Having a Baby!
Congratulations to parents-to-be Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy, who are currently expecting their first child together!
Hearty congratulations are due this morning to Claire Danes and hubby Hugh Dancy—who, it has recently come to light, are expecting their first child together. Hoorah!
Claire’s rep confirmed the news to People on the 4th of July. The timing seems to be fortuitous, as well; a spokesperson for Fox 21 noted that the impending baby isn’t expected to impact the production of season two of Claire’s hit Showtime series, Homeland.
Hugh and Claire met on the set of Evening in 2007 and began dating shortly after the film wrapped production. They wed secretly in France in the fall of 2009 (sneaky!) and settled down together in New York.
Interestingly, People actually asked Claire last fall whether or not there was a baby in the cards for her and Hugh anytime soon, to which the actress responded, “There’s definitely a chance, no plans yet. But yeah, that’d be fun.”
No word on when the baby is due yet, but in any event, that child is going to have some phenomenal genes. Congratulations once again to the happy parents-to-be!
