Claire Danes is very excited about becoming a mother.
The 'Homeland' actress is expecting her first child with husband Hugh Dancy and while she knows their lives are going to change forever, she admits they're already smitten with the baby.
She said: ''There's no way of anticipating what that's going to mean for us but we are very excited. We are going to love this person, I know that.''
Claire grew up around little children but admits she doesn't have much experience with newborn babies.
She told TV show 'Anderson Live': ''My mom ran a toddler school in our loft; I grew up in the city. So I grew up with one-and two-year-olds all throughout my childhood, and I know about early childhood development - that particular window I am pretty educated on.
''Anything before and after I might have some trouble.''
Claire also revealed she and Hugh - who married in 2009 - know the sex of the baby but have decided to keep it quiet.
She added: ''It's important to keep a little something to ourselves because we are so public.''
