Danes and Dancy met on the set of the 2006 show Evening and tied the knot in 2009.
Danes also announced on the show that she is pregnant and is in her second trimester.
"Was this planned or are we having a surprise?"
The actress shared that she wanted to keep her baby's sex private, though she joked that she could name her child after Stern if she has a boy, or "Howardina" if she has a girl.
In speaking towards Homeland coming to a close, we do think that this is something that was bound to happen eventually for a number of different reasons. The couple welcomed son Cyrus in December 2012.
Shortly after he son was born, Danes appeared in the October 2014 issue of Harper's Bazaar UK, where she discussed the challenges of motherhood, E!
She said: "Hugh was just the right partner for me".
However, he did reveal that, "I will say that in just a pie in the sky, we would all love to take this show back to Israel for that final season".
However, the couple - who got married in 2009 after meeting on set of "Evening" in 2006 - have chose to keep the gender of their second child a secret until it's born. "I haven't told anyone, you are the first person I told", she told Howard.
The "Homeland" star has made no secret of the fact she wants more children but she has admitted she's glad she waited until she was a little bit older to start a family.
