A private romance built to last. Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy immediately had chemistry when they met on the set of their film evening.
“I was only recently single and I’ve never been single before, so we were just friends for a while,” he said hometown Alum recalled their first meeting during an interview with in February 2017 Marie Claire. “[Hugh and I] met in Rhode Island when it was boldest in the fall. And one day we were biking along the water and it was sparkling and idyllic and I just had this dumb epiphany, like, ‘I’m just really happy.'”
While Danes was interested in the English native, she had decided to take a break after a series of failed relationships. After feeling that her taste buds were being cleaned after a one night stand during a break in production eveningShe realized that it was Dancy she wanted all along.
“[I thought,] “Oh shit! I think I’m going to marry that person,” she further recalled during a January 2020 appearance Dax Schäfer‘s “Armchair Expert” podcast. “[That was how] the end of my single life was realized.”
For her part, Dancy was particularly pleased with her realization before they started dating.
“All I can say is that I’m really glad my wife decided to have a one night stand with an inappropriate lover,” he said Ella enchanted star joked on SiriusXM’s “The Michelle Collins Show” in May 2020. “It was kind of in the moment [when] She was single, I was single, and we were both clearly thinking about it. She also thought, I suppose as one often does, “Well, do I want to jump back into another relationship?” She had just come out of one.”
After just a few dates, Danes was smitten.
“Well, Hugh is also a big nerd”, the Romeo + Juliet the actress said during an interview with Net-A-Porter in February 2020 porter Magazine. “When we started dating kinda properly, I had an ornament making party for Christmas and he helped organize it. Then he made an ornament out of paper cowboy dolls, and I thought, ‘And he makes things?’ That was it. You have me for the rest of our lives.”
After several years together, Dancy proposed in February 2009. They married in a romantic ceremony in France in September.
“It’s great. They both treat me very well,” he said Hannibal Alum gushed about marriage and fatherhood during a May 2013 interview with the UK evening standard amidst busy careers. “If Hannibal comes, our schedules would overlap by a few months, which would mean that either I could be with her or she with me, or both of us would not be working, and there would be a time when we would have to commute. It’s a complicated balance, like any marriage. We have to be happy as a unit and I also want us both to be happy and fulfilled in what we do independently, so there has to be some wiggle room.”
The couple have two sons together, Cyrus and Rowan, who were born in 2012 and 2018 and have since been enjoying their quiet lives as a family of four.
