Golden Globe winner Claire Danes is expecting her third child.

The *Homeland *actress and her husband, Hugh Dancy, confirmed the news with People on Sunday. The star-studded couple, who married in 2009, are already mom and dad to Cyrus Michael Christopher, 10, and Rowan, 4.

The announcement comes ahead of a busy awards season for Danes. Already a three-time Golden Globe award winner, she has been nominated as best supporting actress for her role in the Hulu limited series Fleishman is in Trouble. The star plays a struggling divorcée and working mom in the show.

While the 43-year-old actress certainly knows plenty about being a working mom, she also appreciates a break to enjoy this special time. “Pretty soon I get to retire for a little while and just be pregnant, which I look forward to,” she said at a Homeland event in 2018 while pregnant with her son Rowan.

“It feels like a huge luxury,” Danes added. “When I was pregnant with my first son, I worked until I was in my eighth month, so this feels like a huge gift, to have a chance to kick my feet up a little bit.”

Here’s hoping Danes has even more time to cherish her pregnancy this time around!
