Claire Danes is pregnant

CLAIRE Danes is pregnant.

The 'Homelands' actress and her actor husband Hugh Dancy are expecting their first child together, her representative confirmed to PEOPLE.

No further details on the pregnancy have been revealed but it is not expected to have any impact on the production of season two of 'Homelands', which starts in September.

Claire - who married Hugh in 2009 - recently revealed she would like a baby, but had no immediate plans.

Last year she said: ''There's definitely a chance, no plans yet, though. But yeah, that'd be fun.''

The 33-year-old star - who has previously dated musician Ben Lee and 'Almost Famous' actor Billy Crudup - also revealed how she feels more secure since marrying 37-year-old Hugh.

She said: ''My mom Carla taught me that a long marriage can work. My parents have been together since they were 18 so I am privileged to have them as role models.

''I like marriage. I feel very secure. It helps when you are in love with the person you are married to.

''I do sometimes look at him and think, 'You are really handsome.' He keeps me sane and happy.''
