Claire Danes expecting first baby with husband Hugh Dancy

Claire Danes pregnant

Homeland star (and, in my eyes My So-Called Life star) Claire Danes is expecting her first baby with husband Hugh Dancy!

Her rep confirmed the happy news to People.

33-year-old Danes and 37-year-old Dancy were married 2009 during a private ceremony in France. Claire as previously gushed about her husband, and her belief that long marriages can actually work:

“My mom Carla taught me that a long marriage can work. My parents have been together since they were 18 so I am privileged to have them as role models. I like marriage. I feel very secure. It helps when you are in love with the person you are married to. I do sometimes look at him and think, ‘You are really handsome.’ He keeps me sane and happy.”

Claire’s pregnancy isn’t going to affect the production of Season 2 of Homeland, which premieres September 30 on Showtime. Hugh has a new NBC series, Hannibal, where he stars as FBI agent Will Graham who enlists the help of Hannibal Lector (Mads Mikkelsen) to hunt a serial killer.
