Claire Danes, 33, of Homeland and Hugh Dancy, 37, of Hysteria have some exciting Fourth of July news this week — they are expecting their first child together.

A rep for Danes officially confirmed the baby news on Wednesday, reports People. "There's definitely a chance," Danes told the magazine last fall when asked if she and Dancy, who married in 2009 after meeting two years before on the set of Evening, were going to be welcoming a little one into the fold anytime soon.

Danes recently accepted a Golden Globe for her work on Homeland, which also stars Damian Lewis, Morena Baccarin and Mandy Patinkin and will return to Showtime on September 30, 2012.

Dancy will star as FBI agent Will Graham on the upcoming NBC series, Hannibal, alongside Mads Mikkelsen, who will portray Dr. Hannibal Lecter. The pilot for Hannibal is expected to debut in January 2013.

Incidentally, Danes and Dancy announced their good news on the same day that Magic Mike star Matthew McConaughey and his new wife, Camila Alves, revealed that they are expecting their third child to add to their current bundles of joy, Levi, 3, and Vida, 2.
