London:`Homeland` star Claire Danes has admitted that she was anxious over returning to the show for its third season after becoming a mother.

The 34-year-old revealed that she suffered from a number of exaggerated fears ahead of her return from maternity leave, reported Digital Spy.

Danes and husband Hugh Dancy welcomed their son Cyrus in December last year.

"I was anxious about returning. I was so in my mommy bubble and I had all sorts of exaggerated fears. But it has been great. The material is very dark and it is so nice to come home and be jarred out of that state by this buoyant butterball - this bundle of love.

"I have this beautiful little boy to just kind of go `bing` and just erase it all very quickly. On set, our director Lesli Linka Glatter will hold him and direct. She`s literally bobbing him in her arms and says, `Action`. It`s very cool. It`s very sweet," Danes said.

The actress revealed that she and Dancy share childcare duties, with her husband now filming his show `Hannibal` in Canada.

"It will be my turn to be holding down the domestic fort. We feel so fortunate that we get to work in tandem like this. There is, like, a month overlap but basically it is `his turn, my turn`."
