Hollywood Baby Boom: Claire Danes Pregnant, Matthew McConaughey Expecting Baby No. 3

claire danes babyTwo celebrities shared their good news yesterday amid the Fourth of July festivities. First up is Homeland star Claire Danes, who’s expecting her first child with husband Hugh Dancy. No word yet on how far along she is, but People reports Danes’ pregnancy won’t affect the storyline of her Homeland character, CIA agent Carrie Mathison (the series returns for its second season in September).

Danes, who in my mind will forever be Angela Chase from My So-Called Life, hinted recently that a baby was a strong possibility. “There’s definitely a chance,” she told People back in October. “No plans yet…but yeah, that would be fun.” (Let the good times roll.)

Also expecting are Matthew McConaughey and his Brazilian model wife Camila Alves. The couple, who married last month, already have two children together: daughter Vida, 2, and son Levi, 3. “Happy birthday America, more good news,” McConaughey wrote on Twitter. “Camila and I are expecting our 3rd child, God bless, just keep livin’.” (Surely you remember that classic line from Dazed and Confused!)

Danes and Alves join a growing list of pregnant celebs from Reese Witherspoon to Megan Fox to Snooki. Kind of makes you wonder what’s in the Hollywood water, no? We wish them all the best of luck.
