Claire Danes fell down a dark “Homeland” rabbit hole online before giving birth to son Cyrus.
Recounting the experience Thursday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the actress, who is set to welcome baby No. 2 with husband Hugh Dancy later this year, said she was previously induced, knowing which day in December 2012 her bundle-of-joy would join the family.
“It happened to be the day that we were going to have this person arrive, it happened to be the day of the finale of ‘Homeland,’” Danes, 39, explained. “People kept coming us in the store going, ‘Really excited for tonight,’ and we were like, ‘How do they know? Who leaked that?’”
Wide awake in the early hours, Danes found something to pass the time as she went into labor naturally.
“It started to really kind of come on throughout the night,” Danes said. “I couldn’t get to sleep because I was, I guess, in acute pain.”
Thinking about the Showtime series’ Season 2 conclusion, Danes wanted to know how audiences felt about the show.
“Three in the morning when you’re looking for feedback, what you mean is, ‘Who hates me and how much?’ So it didn’t take long for me to find the worst possible reviews available on the internet,” she shared.
Fortunately for Danes, she knew the right moment to put her phone down.
“It kind of occurred to me, ‘Oh, I think I’m in labor. I think this is happening, and I’m reading bad reviews.’ I don’t think it gets more masochistic than that,” Danes quipped.
