Not us, that's for sure. The Homeland star has given birth to a baby boy and we couldn't help but think she'd gone to American star Miley Cyrus for inspiration.

The 33-year-old and her British actor hubby Hugh Dancy welcomed the little boy into the world on Monday and have named him Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy (that'll take a long time to stitch into name tapes).

A spokesperson for the Emmy award winning star confirmed news of the baby's arrival to People magazine.

The blonde beauty confirmed her pregnancy back in July but was determined to keep the sex a secret.

She also said she was looking forward to taking a break over the festive season and "getting to know our new Dancy".

Claire married Hugh, 37, in a private ceremony in France in 2009 and recently revealed she confides everything in the actor, even though they were forced to spend a lot of time apart recently because of their respective working commitments.

She said: "I haven't been spending a lot of time with Hugh lately because we've been in so many different places with work, but he is the person I tell absolutely everything to. I trust him more than everyone else.

"A couple of weeks ago I went on a date night with Hugh, who I hadn't seen in a long time because of work.

"We went out to a restaurant in New York and I had a big bowl of pasta. I was a little overwhelmed with joy to be with my guy, eating lots of carbs. It was heaven."
