Riding high after winning an Emmy Award and a whole slew of kudos for Homeland, the actress announced in July (12) she was expecting her first child with Brit actor Hugh Dancy.

Now it's emerged she and Dancy, who married in France in 2009, have had an early Christmas pressy - they've welcomed a little baby boy.

Danes gave birth to a son, named Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy, on Monday (17Dec12).

Her co-star Morena Baccarin, who plays Jessica Brody in Homeland, previously heaped praise on the star for carrying on filming episodes while heavily pregnant.

She gushed, "I'm very excited for her. She's going to be a wonderful mum. It's been a pleasure watching her slowly grow, and she looks so gorgeous. She looks stunning. She's a trouper. She has insane hours and really long days, and the work she's doing on the show is fairly emotional and heavy. But she's been really great. And she's been there for me so many times that I keep saying, 'I need to be there for you. What do you need?'"

The upcoming Hollywood awards season looks set to bring even more excitement for the new mum - she's been nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe for her role as CIA officer Carrie Mathison in the series.
