Claire Danes: Motherhood is exciting

Claire Danes

Claire Danes has no idea what motherhood is "going to mean" for her life.

The Emmy-nominated actress is expecting her first child with her husband Hugh Dancy.

Claire and Hugh are simultaneously anxious and excited about welcoming their bundle of joy.

"[It's a] profound change," Claire told Anderson Cooper during an appearance on his show Anderson Live Thursday.

"There's no way of anticipating what that's going to mean for [Hugh and me] but we are very excited. We are going to love this person, I know that."

Claire feels that she is prepared for the parental responsibility.

She learned a lot from her own mother, who operated a childcare centre when Claire was growing up.

"My mom ran a toddler school in our loft; I grew up in the city," she explained.

"So I grew up with one-and two-year-olds all throughout my childhood, and I know about early childhood development - that particular window I am pretty educated on. Anything before and after I might have some trouble."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
