Claire Danes Shows Off Her Burgeoning Baby Bump In NYC


Back in July we learned that Homeland actress Claire Danes was pregnant and since then … nada. Claire has stayed relatively undercover since news of her pregnancy was announced. In the months since her pregnancy was announced, Danes worked hard to film scenes for this season of Homeland on Showtime. But, as you can see below, Claire has finally surfaced and we see that her stomach has grown too big for her to work right now so … her baby should be making its arrival sometime very soon.

She is expecting her first baby early next year. And Claire Danes’s pregnancy figure certainly seems to have blossomed in the last few weeks. The Homeland star stepped out with her dashing husband Hugh Dancy on Tuesday and kept her growing baby bump snug in a woollen coat. The 33-year-old tenderly placed a protective hand on her tummy as she and the 37-year-old actor hailed a taxi on Sixth Avenue in Soho, New York.
The couple had been enjoying an afternoon stroll in the chilly yet sunny Big Apple. The actress certainly dressed for the occasion in her chic black coat, which she belted just above her rounded tummy. She paired the winter attire with brown leather boots and a caramel-coloured pashmina. Meanwhile, Hugh looked dapper in a speckled grey jacket paired with jeans, a black knit and a tartan scarf. The pair had been shopping in the trendy Manhattan area where they were most likely picking up Christmas gifts. It will certainly be a great start to the year in 2013 for the couple with Claire set to give birth to their first child … Recently Claire told Anderson Cooper both her, and her British husband, are ecstatic to be expecting. ‘There’s no way of anticipating what that’s going to mean for us but we are very excited,’ she said. ‘We are going to love this person, I know that.’

Awww … Claire looks so great. She and husband Hugh Dancy are going to be great parents, I think. Claire Danes, who is a fantastic actress, doesn’t get a lot of attention but I think she is far more interesting than, say, someone like Scarlett Johansson. Claire has enjoyed a very successful career and I’m happy to see that success continue. I am LOVING this second season of Homeland and I’m really looking forward to the show’s return next year. I can’t wait for Claire to birth her baby … I just know that little darling is going to be the cutest ever.

    I have become such a Homeland freak! My bf and I were a little late to the party, but once we started watching we were addicted! We watched all of Season 1 in 3 days…tee hee.

    I am so happy for her. I used to look up to her in My So Called Life, and I am glad she has had a long and respected career. I think the Temple Grandin movie on HBO helped remind people what she was capable of. Good to see she hasn’t lost her quivering chin that I liked so much on MSCL!
