Claire Danes often plays determined women (see: Carrie Mathison, Homeland). In real life, she’s no less fierce. After welcoming her second son with husband Hugh Dancy on August 27, 2018 (the pair also have Cyrus, 5), the 39-year-old seemed to lose the baby weight in the blink of an eye. She was photographed just four days later walking on the streets of NYC in a loose, button down blue dress for the first time without her baby bump.
After that, she kicked the weight loss into serious high gear — and appeared to drop all of the baby pounds in just six weeks, debuting her new slim, postpartum figure on the red carpet in NYC on October 11.
