Claire Danes is very excited about becoming a mother. The Homeland actress is expecting her first child with husband Hugh Dancy and while she knows their lives are going to change forever, she admits they're already smitten with the baby.
"There's no way of anticipating what that's going to mean for us but we are very excited. We are going to love this person, I know that," she said.
Claire grew up around little children but admits she doesn't have much experience with newborn babies. "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 throughout my childhood, and I know about early childhood development - that particular window I am pretty educated on. Anything before and after I might have some trouble," she said.
Claire also revealed she and Hugh - who married in 2009 - know the sex of the baby but have decided to keep it quiet. "It's important to keep a little something to ourselves because we are so public," she added.
Congratulations go out to Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy, who have confirmed that they are expecting their first child.
Back in fall, Claire admitted to wanting children, but that none were on the way just then: “There’s definitely a chance, no plans yet... But yeah, that’d be fun."
The couple married in France back in 2009.

“I totally read gossip magazines if I’m at the gym or having my nails done. I don’t like them. I’m not for them because I don’t like being chased by paparazzi. But they satisfy a kind of id, like a grubby, nosy part of ourselves. But I’m wary of it because it’s laced with meanness. Especially with the anonymity of the Internet, it’s a reflection of our less appealing selves that wouldn’t be so apparent if we were all in the same room together.”

Up until recently, I would have said that Kate Hudson was one of the skinniest actresses in America. (Notice I said America, because otherwise Keira Knightley would easily have her beat).
But then I saw Claire Danes.
I’ve always been told that black was a slimming color, but apparently red does a pretty good job as well.
At last night’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, female celebrities of every caliber had the chance to put on their finest. (Their escorts did their best to look acceptable in their suits.)
Unfortunately, most of the dresses I saw this year were either outright boring or simply ugly. You can view more of the lowlights - and some of the highlights - after the jump.

Every once in a while, you come across a person you hardly now….and you find yourself rooting for them. For me, Mary-Louise Parker is one of those people.
Why? Two words: Billy Crudup.
Although I loved him in Almost Famous, the actor’s Q-score went down (in my eyes) when he left a 7-months-pregnant Parker for actress Claire Danes. Couldn’t he have waited until she at least had the baby? Dear God—they’d already been dating like seven years at that point…what’s a few more months?
