Claire Danes, Cyrus

Jennifer Buhl,

Balancing an acting career with a 6-month-old baby is no easy feat!

But Claire Danes appears to be juggling between the two with great ease. The actress was spotted filming on the set of her hit show Homeland while toting her son Cyrus around.

Danes held her baby in between takes and even found some time to work on her cross-stitching during her breaks when the little bundle of joy wasn't in need of his mother.

And Cyrus is getting so big! The adorable baby wore a white onesie to keep cool in the North Carolina heat. He's simply too cute for words!

Danes is currently reprising her role as Carrie Mathison, a former operations officer who is working with the CIA to interrogate and bring terrorists to justice around the world.

This marks the third season for the Emmy Award-winning Showtime drama, which has landed Danes numerous awards and rave reviews.

The new mom, who took home a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Drama Series, told E! News before the awards show that her son has a "very calming presence." 

Danes went on to say motherhood is "great," adding, "I'm seriously happy—and also sort of startled to be in this scene suddenly, I've been so sequestered, I've been in baby world."

It seems like working on one of the most-watched television shows while raising her first child was something that Danes transitioned into fairly seamlessly.

"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," she said in an issue of Elle magazine earlier this year. "I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn't suit me."

The actress and her husband, fellow actor Hugh Dancy, who tied the knot in September 2009, welcomed their son in December of last year.
