In September, Danes (33) told Anderson Cooper that the were expecting their new addition in early 2013, so he may have arrived a wee bit ahead of schedule.
Danes and Dancy did not confirm the sex of the baby publicly before his birth, but they did find out themselves. “We know. I have no patience,” she joked. “I had to find out, but it’s important to keep a little something to ourselves, you know, because we’re so public and stuff.”
When Cooper asked what kind of mother she’d be, Danes hesitated. “I hope a good one,” she answered sheepishly. “I don’t know! We’re going to love this person. I know that. My mom ran a toddler school in our loft. I grew up in the city, so I grew up with one- and two-year-olds all througout my childhood. I know about early childhood development. That particular window I’m pretty educated [about]. But anything before or after, I might have some trouble. It’s a profound change. There’s no way of anticipating what that’s going to mean for us, but we really are so excited.”
