Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy have welcomed baby number two into the world! According to The Hollywood Reporter, a publicist for the actors told the Associated Press on Friday, August 31, that the Homeland star gave birth to a son on Monday, August 27, in New York.

This is the second child for Danes and Dancy, who married in 2009 and are already the parents of a five-year-old son, Cyrus Michael Christopher.

The actress revealed back in April that she was expecting her second child, telling Howard Stern on his Sirius XM show, 鈥淥kay, so I鈥檓 gonna tell you, I鈥檓 pregnant. I鈥檓 seriously preggo. I鈥檓 deep into my second trimester. You鈥檙e the first person I鈥檝e told.鈥

Later that same day, she told Jimmy Fallon about the downside of working while pregnant. 鈥淚 was filming during the first trimester, which is kind of my least favorite phase because you just feel horrible,鈥 she admitted. 鈥淵ou feel just rotten and you鈥檙e not allowed to say why.鈥

Fortunately, by her second trimester, she was 鈥渇eeling good鈥 鈥 and so was her baby-to-be. 鈥淚t gets a little excited when I have a chocolate bar. It鈥檚 moving and kicking,鈥 she told Fallon. 鈥淚 love that part. It鈥檚 like a firework show. And a little creepy. It鈥檚 like an alien being in there! I鈥檓 cohabiting!鈥

Congratulations to the new family of four!
