London: Actress Claire Danes, who`s expecting her first child with husband Hugh Dancy, is excited about becoming a mother.

"There`s no way of anticipating what that`s going to mean for us but we are very excited. We are going to love this person, I know that," quoted Danes as saying.

The 33-year-old, who previously dated musician Ben Lee and actor Billy Crudup, tied the knot with Dancy in 2009.

"My mom ran a toddler school in our loft. I grew up in the city. 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. It`s important to keep a little something to ourselves because we are so public," she said.
