Baby On The Way For Claire And Hugh

Hollywood actress Claire Danes and her British husband Hugh Dancy have confirmed they are expecting their first child together.

Hugh Dancy and Claire Danes

Three years after they got married in France in 2009, American actress Claire Danes and British actor Hugh Dancy are expecting their first child. When People magazine heard a rumour that Claire was pregnant, they decided to investigate, and Claire's representative confirmed that the rumour is true. However, the baby's sex or due date have not yet been revealed.

The couple have both been very busy since their wedding, with Danes winning a Golden Globe for her role in TV series Homeland, while Dancy has made his name in America thanks to his part in the TV show The Big C. Hugh originally found fame in the U.K. when he appeared in period novel TV adaptations such as David Copperfield and Daniel Deronda. He then made a move into film, and became well known internationally for his roles in romantic comedies such as Confessions of a Shopaholic and The Jane Austen Book Club.

Danes and Dancy met when they co-starred in the film Evening in 2007, and got engaged in February 2009. Claire has said in interviews that she is very happy to be married and hopes that her relationship with Hugh lasts as long as her parents' -- they have been together since the age of 18. As Claire's parents are strong role models for her, it's likely her first child could be named after one of them, Carla for a girl or Christopher for a boy.
