Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Claire Danes and her husband, actor Hugh Dancy, have welcomed their first child, a boy.

The Homeland star, 33, and British actor, 37, welcomed Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy on Monday, Dec. 17, People magazine confirmed.

It is unclear if the new mom will attend the Golden Globes on Jan. 13, where she is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series for her work on Homeland.

Dancy, who is best known for roles in Black Hawk Down and last year’s acclaimed Martha Marcy May Marlene, is set to star in the upcoming TV series Hannibal, which explores the character Dr. Hannibal Lecter, made famous by Anthony Hopkins in the 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs.

Jessica Simpson Gives Birth to Baby Girl

ABC/RANDY HOLMES(LOS ANGELES) -- Jessica Simpson welcomed her first child on Tuesday.  Simpson posted the announcement on her official website, writing "Eric and I are elated to announce the birth of our baby girl, Maxwell Drew Johnson.  9 lbs. 13 oz.  We are so grateful for all of the love, support and prayers we have received.  This has been the greatest experience of oour lives!"

Simpson checked into a Los Angeles hospital early Tuesday morning with several members of her family, reports, including her mom, sister, and fiance Eric Johnson's parents.

Simpson was outspoken about her pregnancy in the weeks leading up to her delivery.  Close to her due date, which was a week ago, the singer and reality star tweeted about a dream she had. "I just woke up from a dream that I wore a leopard caftan in the hospital," she wrote. "Fabulous!! Now I need to find one!"

Simpson was clearly ready to give birth, telling Jimmy Kimmel during a recent appearance on his late-night talk show that because her belly is weighing so heavily on her "hoo-ha," when her water breaks, it will be "like a fire hydrant."

Simpson stuck with her signature flashy style through her pregnancy, wearing six-inch heels and a snakeskin dress to her baby shower.

Simpson, 31, and Johnson, 32, eventually plan to wed. "I want him to be my husband so bad," Simpson told Jay Leno in March. "I do still want to wear the pretty gown, so I have to wait."
