Claire DanesHomeland star Claire Danes, 33, and husband Hugh Dancy, 37, are expecting their first child, Danes’ representative confirmed to People.

Danes and Dancy have been married since 2009, and the actress recently admitted that she was thinking about having a baby. “There’s definitely a chance, no plans yet, though. But yeah, that’d be fun.”

When asked about married life, Claire spoke about her parents’ marriage, which has lasted since they were 18 years old. “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.”

Unfortunately no further details on the pregnancy have been revealed at this time, but we’ll keep you posted if we catch wind of anything else about the happy couple.

Congratulations Claire and Hugh!
