Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy have had a baby boy! The Homeland actress and her husband have named their first child Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy. We’re guessing that he wasn’t name after Miley Cyrus… or indeed Billy Ray Cyrus but so far there’s no word on why they chose the name.

The couple’s rep confirmed the good news about the baby’s safe arrival into the world, to People magazine. Claire and Hugh have kept the finer details of her pregnant life very private but she did tell People magazine recently that she and Hugh are excited to be “getting to know our new Dancy” once the baby arrives. Well, now she can do just that and we look forward to learning more about the new arrival when news comes in.

Claire, 33 and Hugh, 37, married each other in a private ceremony in France, back in 2009. In September, Danes won an Emmy for her performance as the CIA agent Carrie Matheson on the hit Showtime drama Homeland, which has been a huge success both in the USA and the UK. Hugh is an English actor, now living Stateside with his wife. Next year, he will star in a TV adaptation of the story of Hannibal Lecter. He is due to play the role of Special Agent Will Graham.
