Claire Danes - Working mother Claire Danes

Claire Danes will be a working mother.

The 'Homeland' star gave birth to her first son, Cyrus, on December 17, but doesn't plan to stay at home with him for too long.

She told the new US issue of ELLE magazine: ''I've always wanted to have kids, but I'm glad I didn't until now. When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about it.

''I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn't suit me. I feel so fortunate, in that I've had this arrow-straight focus that I wanted to act.''

Claire who is married to fellow actor Hugh Dancy, 37, added she feels ''lucky'' to have such a great partner who helped guide her through her pregnancy.

The 33-year-old actress - who was in a six-year relationship with Australian musician Ben Lee and dated actor Billy Crudup before she met Hugh - added: ''Hugh was just the right partner for me. I got very, very lucky.

''There's only so much credit you can take when it just sort of works, you know? And obviously we work hard at maintaining our relationship - that is central to both our lives - but at the same time, it's just this kind of ease that I can't really account for.''
