Claire Danes and husband Hugh Dancy welcomed a baby boy Monday night.
According to E! Online, the couple named their son Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy.
In September the Homeland actress told Anderson Cooper that the baby was due at the beginning of the new year, meaning that Cyrus arrived a few weeks early.
Danes was hesitant to divulge too much information to Cooper though, and decided to keep the gender of the baby secret.
"It's important to keep a little something to ourselves because we're so public,” the actress said.
When asked by Cooper what kind of mom Danes wanted to be, the actress responded. “I hope a good one! We're going to love this person, I know that.”
Although Danes remained relatively private throughout her pregnancy, the actress did tell People that she is excited “to know our new Dancy.”
Cyrus’ birth occurred the day after Homeland’s highly-rated, second-season finale. The boy is Danes and Dancy’s first child together, and the couple has been married since 2009.
