43-year-old Claire Danes looked healthy and fit in her yoga outfit earlier this week. The third-time mother announced her unplanned pregnancy with her partner, Hugh Dancy. The Romeo + Juliet star beamed as she prepared for her daily workout.

Showing Off Her Growing Bump

Danes and her spouse announced their pregnancy in January, saying it was an unexpected blessing. However, their older children, Cyrus (10) and Rowan (6) weren't as pleased with the news.

Yoga For The Baby

Danes looked laidback in her casual leggings, sweatshirt, and shearling coat. After walking a few kilometers, the actress removed her coat and sweatshirt to reveal a gray t-shirt.

The couple met on the set of Evening in 2006 and started dating shortly after. In 2009, they sealed their romance with a promise of forever.

Rowan Isn't Pleased

Thirteen years later, the couple is parents to two boys, Cyrus (10) and Rowan (4), who aren't fans of the big news. Danes told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that the older of the two is resigned to sharing his parents with a second child.

However, the four-year-old is more vocal about his displeasure. Since he'll no longer be the last born, Rowan believes the new baby would disrupt the status quo. Danes reported the toddler saying,

"I don't like it. I like peace, Mama."

Rowan Suggests Giving The Baby Up For Adoption

Rowan then suggested a better solution to the incoming "disruptor" by asking Danes to give up the baby to a family that's in need. Danes encouraged him to be a great older brother to appease the toddler.

The four-year-old is excited about being the all-knowing older sibling. Danes said it made Rowan more optimistic about having a younger sibling. However, she agreed with the toddler that this would be the family's last child.

Baby's Sex Stays Hidden

Danes and Dancy made their big reveal at this year's Golden Globes where the actress admitted she's rolling the dice and wouldn't bother checking the child's sex.

Getting Into Mama Mode

Danes made headlines when she walked the Golden Globes carpet in her Giambattista Valli dress. She shared details about her surprise bump, including that she's in "Mama Mode."

Thrilled But Not Ready

Dancy is also thrilled about the new baby but isn't ready because it was a surprise. He told Fallon that one could only prepare for the baby's arrival and adjust life to each child's uniqueness afterward.

When Danes was pregnant with Rowan, she was filming the final season of her critically acclaimed series Homeland. The actress mentioned that the pregnancy was an opportunity to relax after putting in hard work on set.

Staying Off Social Media
