'Homeland' Star Morena Baccarin Welcomes First Baby


Morena Baccarin


The actress gave birth to her and husband Austin Chick's first child, Julius, on Tuesday via breech delivery.

Emmy-nominated actress Morena Baccarin and her director husband Austin Chick welcomed their first child on Tuesday, October 22, in Glendale, California. Baby boy Julius, who weighed just a little under eight pounds, came via natural delivery despite being a breech baby, which was considered more risky to both mother and child with the baby coming out feet first instead of the usual head-first position.

The delivery was successfully done at the Glendale Adventist Medical Center thanks to Dr. Ronald Wu, the only doctor in the area to specialize in such cases. "I'm so happy I was able to deliver with Dr. Wu. Breech delivery is a dying art and he gave me the birth experience I wanted," the "Homeland" star and new mom said about her big day at the hospital.

It seems that Baccarin was very fortunate to have not only a safe delivery of her baby but also a problem-free pregnancy while she worked on her hit TV series. Without the producers having to make her pregnancy part of her character Jessica Brod's storyline in the drama-thriller, she expressed her appreciation to the show for providing her "a work environment where you are nurtured as a pregnant woman."

"Everybody's allowed me to have my space, do the work I need to do, but at the same time, they're really taking care of me," said Baccarin.

Another cast member who enjoyed the loving care of the "Homeland" staff and crew while pregnant is the show's Emmy Award-winning lead actress Claire Danes who had her baby with actor husband Hugh Dancy last December.
