The answer is Yes! Claire is happily married to British actor and model, Hugh Dancy and the couple has a son, Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy to prove this.

Even though both Claire and Hugh were happy with their marriage but there were rumors about the duo getting divorced. So is it really true? Let's find out. We know that Danes has been taking therapy since she was six.

Everyone takes it nowadays but from the age of six is somewhat unusual. But let's not forget that Claire is also different not in a bad way but in a good way. Claire revealed in 2012 that she had horrible and unusual visions at night in her childhood.

So her parents admitted her to therapy. But she continued taking therapy classes so as a backup support for acting. She was determined to be an actor since she was five. Even as a child, she worked very hard in her acting classes.

We can see that now too. Every time she acts, she puts her heart in it. She gives attention to every tiny detail and goes to any length her role requires. Directors and producers would not applaud her for no tiny reason.

This habit of Danes's has not left her even now. It has no doubt helped build her career but sometimes she takes it too far. Rumors of her divorce had spread recently. So is she divorced? No. But why the rumor of her divorce was spread?

Reason Behind Claire Dane's Rumor of Divorce

The rumors started after the birth of their first son. Apparently, Claire appears too obsessed with her son, Cyrus. Rumors, if believed, suggested that she could not leave him alone even for a second. As a mother, its natural for her to be concerned about her son but that's like next to impossible.

But then the reason might be Danes's too much insecure about Cyrus. She admitted

Everything is baby-centric right now. I’m having a big old romance with my baby.

Claire Danes, therefore, can be very difficult to deal with. Moreover, many of her crew members complain about her crazy behavior time and again. As a result, they have to suffer. While shooting for Homeland, Claire even is provided with her own room where she goes whenever she feels stressed.

An anonymous staff opened up in an interview.

She’s very emotional and can be incredibly difficult. If she’s stressed she goes into her ‘howling room’ and screams. This are strained; she’s been terse with Damian Lewis when he tried to joke around. she’s considered a huge pain.

Imagine how her husband had to go through considering he does not believe in going by the rules. OMG! It's a miracle he is still alive. God save him!

Their pole apart nature could also be hampering their relation, Claire believes in going by the book. Hugh, on the other hand, is a kind of free spirit guy. Hugh even opened up in an interview

 You have to have, not rules, but things to aspire to, like not being apart too long, basic stuff. Don’t take a job in Australia without telling me! Hah, that came out sounding a little personal. Neither of us has done that yet.

Hence Danes and Dancy have a different approach to parenting style. According to sources, both thought that each of their behaviors is leaving a bad impact on their child, hence could not believe their son with each other. The big irony since they are the parent.

In most of the cases, it is the dad who is found less responsible. That's considered normal but not for Claire. So when Claire is working hard for her baby but sees Hugh doing less work, she would certainly lose her mind. This is not only the only reason.

Another key reason might be the cultural differences since Hugh is a British and Claire, an American. On one occasion they fought over as little as which country's rhyme should Cyrus learn first. These all issues could lead to fights and arguments which ultimately mean separation.

Relax they are not yet separated but they should work together resolve these issues if they want to save their marriage.
