“Homeland” On The Homefront: Baby

Carrie Matheson, the CIA agent she plays on “Homeland,” may be a frustrating welter of conflicting emotion, but the actor who plays her — Claire Danes — was nothing but happy at the announcement that she and her actor husband, Hugh Dancy, welcomed their first child, son Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy, on Monday, Dec. 17. Since confirming her pregnancy in July, Danes has stayed mostly mum on the subject of baby — including keeping the sex a secret — but tells People rag in its new year-end double issue that she looks forward to “getting to know our new Dancy” over the break. Danes, who won an Emmy in September for her role as bipolar Carrie on the hit Showtime drama, wed Dancy, 37, in a private ceremony in France in 2009.
