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.

“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.”
