Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy welcome their second child
Claire Danes (39) and Hugh Dancy (43) welcomed their second child on Monday, Aug. 27 in New York! And it’s a boy! The couple kept the sex of the baby in secret but now everything is obvious! They are already parents to 5-year-old son Cyrus Michael Christopher. Claire Danes announced the happy news in April. She said she was "seriously preggo" and "deep into my second trimester."
"I’ve always wanted to have kids, but I’m glad I didn’t until now," she once said.
"When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about it… I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn’t suit me. I feel so fortunate, in that I’ve had this arrow-straight focus… that I wanted to act."
"When I was pregnant with my first son, I worked until I was in my eighth month, so this feels like a huge gift, to have a chance to kick my feet up a little bit."
Claire Danes and her first son
Claire previously admitted that her child had mixed emotions about the new baby.
"There was a little wobble a couple months ago, where he was saying, 'You're gonna love the baby more than you love me,' and then I was gonna love everybody more than I love him!"
"Anybody who walked through the door, he'd say, 'You love that person more than you love me!' But he's come around, We've moved through that and he keeps kissing my stomach..."
“It's very sweet, but I'm sure it'll go back and forth ... feelings of excitement, and dread, and resentment."
She confessed "Everything's just a little more complicated when you're knocked up. I have to wear compression stockings."
"So there's a lot of pressure on the lower extremities right? So it interferes with circulation, so it's harder for the blood to get back up to the heart."
