Claire Danes, Hugh Dancy welcome baby boy

Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy are now the parents of a baby boy, CNN's confirmed.

According to People magazine, the "Homeland" actress and her husband of three years welcomed their son on December 17. They named their firstborn Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy.

Danes, 33, announced her pregnancy in July, just before picking up an Emmy for her work on "Homeland" and the Showtime drama's second season premiere.

Danes has another set of awards shows to look forward to next year, as "Homeland" has also brought in SAG and Golden Globe nods. Her co-star, Mandy Patinkin, has been waiting on Danes' joyful news to really celebrate the recognition.

"Working on 'Homeland' has been one of the joys of my life," Patinkin said after he, Danes and their co-star Damian Lewis were all nominated for Golden Globe awards. "We have such gifted writers - I have to pinch myself every day that I get to be a part of this company. Still - the real big news we are all waiting for is Claire's baby. When I get that call, the fireworks will really start."

  2. my boyfriend and i were saying last night....

    how this couple (pic above) appears to have it together and even though we are a bit older we want to follow this couple and stay away from dysfunctional couples. dyfunctional couples only try to suck everyone into their
    miserable lifestyle.

    Wow, a hollywood couple married three years? They're not the shallow self-obsessed narcissist typical celebrity couple. Let's wish them a happy successful family life which sadly is quite a raarity nowadays.
