Pregnant Claire Danes Debuts Baby Bump in Chic Style at Tribeca Film Festival
By Tina Smithers Peckham
Claire Danes has the sweetest little bun in the oven!
The Homeland star debuted her growing belly on Thursday at the Tribeca Film Festival director's series in New York City. Her baby bump took center stage when she hit the red carpet in a white Prabal Gurung midi dress with a plunging neckline, which she paired with black Gianvito Rossi strappy heels and minimal makeup.
Danes' bump reveal comes just over a week after the 39-year-old actress announced that she and husband Hugh Dancy are expecting their second child together. The two are currently parents to 5-year-old son Cyrus.
"OK, so I'm gonna tell you, I'm pregnant," she shared. "I'm seriously preggo."
She also added that she is actually pretty far along into her pregnancy, continuing, "I'm deep into my second trimeter."
Danes further dished on her upcoming bundle of joy last week on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, stating that she had to keep the news hush-hush while filming the hit Showtime drama.
“You just feel horrible. You just feel rotten and you’re not allowed to say why,” she explained to Fallon, adding that the first trimester is her "least favorite phase."
Danes said she was so tired on set that she embarrassingly "face planted" onto a crocheted bag in between takes.
“I was filming quite a lot and just inadvertently falling asleep all the time," she shared. "It was just embarrassing. I have this crocheted indentation all on the side of my face. It looked like I had third degree burns."
Danes added that the crew had to act quickly to smooth out the strange pattern as a result of her sudden on-set nap.
“They were massaging my face. They had to get out the blow dryer," she recalled. "I halted production for a good half an hour. I felt like an idiot.”
The four-time Golden Globe winner admitted that she's now enjoying the “cruisy second trimester."
“It gets a little excited when I have a chocolate bar. It’s moving and kicking,” she said of her bun in the oven. “I love that part. It’s like a fireworks show every so often. It’s really cool and a little creepy. It is, it’s like an alien being in there, cohabitating, yeah, AirBNB.”
