After announcing her pregnancy in July, the Homeland star has been fairly private about the baby, including staying mum about the sex of their child.

It’s a big year for the new mom, who also won an Emmy in September for her role as bi-polar CIA agent Carrie Matheson on the Showtime hit. She's also been nominated for a Golden Globe for the role! The 33-year-old will face off against Nashville's Connie Britton, Damages star Glenn Close, Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery and The Good Wife's Julianna Margulies in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series — Drama category.

Happy Holidays and congratulations to the new parents... we can't wait to meet him!
