Claire Danes is Elle’s covergirl for February 2013. Looking at this picture you’d think, “yeah that’s the Homeland star rocking a white t-shirt in a most fashionable way.” What you probably aren’t thinking is “damn, she looks good for being eight months pregnant.” And why would you think this? She certainly doesn’t look pregnant at all, but I assure you she is indeed with child and glowing from top to toe not only on the cover but in the accompanying pictures found within the magazine.
Of course this cover was shot back a few months ago and Claire Danes and husband Hugh Dancy have since welcomed a beautiful boy, Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy. However, this image will now, I imagine, haunt pregnant women around the world. As most of us suffer from swollen bits, actually swollen everything really while pregnant, we can’t imagine sitting for a covershoot in such a state. Meanwhile Claire Danes looks better than ever in her “could give birth at any moment” condition. Could you just imagine what a story that would be had she done so on the set of an Elle cover shoot…
Look for the Elle February 2013 issue to hit newsstands on the 15th of January.
