Hugh Dancy is pretty excited to welcome his first baby with wife Claire Danes into the world. In fact, he was so excited that he barely waited a day to notify those closest to him about the birth of Cyrus Michael Christopher.

"Mother and baby are well, healthy and happy, and together we send our love to you all," Dancy sent in an email to his loved ones which was posted by the New York Post. He adds that Cyrus was born at "exactly 3 p.m." on Dec. 17.

Though the public didn't find out about the baby until a day later, Danes had spoken candidly about her unborn child back in September. "We're going to love this person. I know that," she said. "It's a profound change. There's no way of anticipating what that's going to mean for us, but we really are so excited."
