Claire Danes can`t wait to become a mother
The `Homeland` actress is expecting her first child with husband Hugh Dancy and she is excited about meeting her baby and is "ready" to have her life turned upside down.
She said: "I`m excited about becoming a mum. It`s abstract still; there`s nothing much to do at this point but be healthy, incubate and take it as it comes, but I feel totally ready."
In the run-up to giving birth, Claire - who is around eight months pregnant - says she will be making a lot of crafts as that`s what she likes to do to relax.
She told Britain`s InStyle magazine: "I love crafts. My parents are artists, so I inherited that from them. I draw on a lot of T-shirts and bags and I love Christmas because I get to make stockings."
While she is excited about becoming a mother, Claire also loves her job and feels spoilt to be playing Carrie Mathison in `Homeland`.
She said: "I feel spoilt working on `Homeland`. It`s unusual to find a character this sophisticated - specific, layered, flawed, heroic. She`s a once-in-a-lifetime. I like her so much. I mean, she`d be tough to hang out with, but I admire her."
