Hugh and Claire Danes Are Expecting Their Third Child!

Claire Danes, who only two days prior had announced she was having her third child, showed off her burgeoning baby belly on the red carpet at the 2023 Golden Globes on Tuesday night.

In a white flowery Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown with crystal accents, a feather hem, and a pink bow at the bust, the “Fleishman Is in Trouble” actress absolutely radiated.

People magazine learned on Sunday that Danes, 43, is expecting her third child with husband Hugh Dancy, 47, through a statement sent by the Emmy winner’s representative.

The couple’s kids, Cyrus, 10, and Rowan, 4, are already part of their lives.

The “Homeland” actress and the actor got engaged in 2006 while filming “Evening,” and they eventually got married in 2009. Although she prefers to keep her private family life out of the public, the “My So-Called Life” star told People in a 2014 interview that she brought her first kid, Cyrus, on set while filming “Homeland.”

Who are these two? The Whole Story of Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy’s Relationship

On Sunday, January 8, a representative for the pair revealed to People that the 43-year-old actress is expecting the couple’s third child. The couple has two boys together, Cyrus, 10, and Rowan, 4. Both 47-year-olds, Danes, and Dancy tied the knot in 2009 after meeting on the set of the 2006 film Evening.

The former Homeland star told Marie Claire in February 2017: “I was very newly single, and I had never been single before, so we were just friends for a time.” Hugh and I first crossed paths in autumnal Rhode Island, when the Ocean State was at its most striking.

And there was this one day when we were out on our bicycles by the river, and the sun was shining and everything was perfect, and I had this stupid realization, like, “I’m really just happy.”

The Hannibal actor has quipped in the past that he is “very delighted” Danes “chose to have a one-night stand with an inadequate lover” while she was trying to remain unmarried despite her relationship with Dancy.

He explained the timing on SiriusXM’s The Michelle Collins Show in May 2020, saying, “It was kind of at the period [when] she was single, I was single, and we were both definitely thinking about it.”

“She was probably also wondering, ‘Well, do I want to leap back into another relationship?’ as one does from time to time,” I imagine. She’d recently emerged from one.

Three months after Danes called Dancy “my spouse, my love, my life, my baby daddy” while collecting an Emmy, the couple had Cyrus in September 2012. After waiting nearly four years, in August of 2018, they finally became parents to Rowan.

Danes, who was expecting her second child at the time of the FYC event she attended, said she was looking forward to taking some time off to focus on her pregnancy and family before filming the last season of Homeland.

This is a really opulent experience. To be able to put my feet up for a while and relax is a wonderful gift, especially since I worked until I was eight months pregnant with my first kid.
