Claire, who stars in Homeland, confirmed her pregnancy back in July and has since stayed virtually silent on baby talk — including keeping the sex a secret — but told People magazine that she looks forward to “getting to know our new Dancy” over this holiday season.

Claire, 33 and Hugh, 37, were married in an exclusive private ceremony in France back in 2009. “[I feel] incredible” about being married, she told the magazine.

In September, the actress won her second Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her stellar performance playing CIA-agent Carrie Matheson on the Showtime series. The series, which completed its second season on Sunday, Dec. 16 was forced to work around Claire’s baby bump during most of the season’s filming. The show returns for season three in fall of 2013.

As previously reported, Claire dressed her bump amazingly during the 2012 Emmy Awards in a yellow Lanvin gown that she called “bump-friendly!”

During her acceptance speech, she gave a special shout out to “my husband, my love, my life, my baby daddy.”

Congratulations to the couple on their first child! They’re going to make terrific parents.

Sound off, HollywoodLifers. What do you think about Claire being a mom?
