The actress revealed she was expecting her second child with husband Hugh Dancy in a radio interview with Howard Stern on Wednesday (18Apr18), and during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon later that day, she confessed that she felt so very bad during the first trimester of her pregnancy that she kept falling asleep while filming her TV show. Danes confirmed in an interview with radio host Howard Stern that the Showtime program is ending after its eighth season.

When Homeland was picked up with a 2-season renewal by Showtime after Season 6, it felt like that could be the end. "She's a lot, this Carrie-freakin' Mathison character", Danes told Stern.

"It's just chilling in there", she added, of her baby-to-be. "Claire Danes also said that her character "is under constant duress" because of the nature of her job and that with Homeland season 8, Carrie wwill be ready for a reprieve from that", reported ANI. "I'm deep into my second trimester", the Homeland actress, 39, revealed on the show, but did say she's keeping the gender private. "It's moving and kicking", she said of her second child. But as with most stars of successful television series, seeing it come to an end is likely bittersweet. Danes recalled those first few weeks as being her "least favorite phase".
