claire danes baby bump hugh dancy Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy welcome son Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy“Homeland” star Claire Danes has given birth to her first child with actor husband Hugh Dancy. People confirms their son Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy was born Monday, Dec. 17.

In September, Danes (33) told Anderson Cooper that the were expecting their new addition in early 2013, so he may have arrived a wee bit ahead of schedule.

Danes and Dancy did not confirm the sex of the baby publicly before his birth, but they did find out themselves. “We know. I have no patience,” she joked. “I had to find out, but it’s important to keep a little something to ourselves, you know, because we’re so public and stuff.”

When Cooper asked what kind of mother she’d be, Danes hesitated. “I hope a good one,” she answered sheepishly. “I don’t know! We’re going to love this person. I know that. My mom ran a toddler school in our loft. I grew up in the city, so I grew up with one- and two-year-olds all througout my childhood. I know about early childhood development. That particular window I’m pretty educated [about]. But anything before or after, I might have some trouble. It’s a profound change. There’s no way of anticipating what that’s going to mean for us, but we really are so excited.”
