Claire Danes Tells Elle Magazine What A Crappy SAHM She Would Be
Like most celebrity women who have recently given birth, Claire Danes isÂ fieldingÂ all those fluffy “what’s like being a mom?” questions. This time it was Elle magazine who leaned in to get the scoop on Claire’s adjustment to life with newbornÂ Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy.Â But she’s not joining that ultra trendy SAHM celeb movement just yet.
When describing her own circumstances, the 33-year-old says that as a working mother, she’s chosen the right route for herself:
â€œIâ€™ve always wanted to have kids, but Iâ€™m glad I didnâ€™t until now. When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about itâ€¦I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldnâ€™t suit me. I feel so fortunate, in that Iâ€™ve had this arrow-straight focusâ€¦that I wanted to act.â€
In addition to that “arrow-straight focus” for her profession, Claire admits that she was also blessed with just â€œthe right partner for me,” Mr. Hugh Dancy:
“I got very, very lucky. Thereâ€™s only so much credit you can take when it just sort of works, you know? And obviously we work hard at maintaining our relationship â€“ that is central to both our lives â€“ but at the same time, itâ€™s just this kind of ease that I canâ€™t really account for.â€
Considering that baby Cyrus was only born on December 17th, Elle sureÂ wastedÂ no time getting those obligatory quotes.
