Claire Danes made it clear today thatHomeland will end with Season 8.

On Wednesday, actress Claire Danes, who portrays ex-CIA agent Carrie Mathison on the long running Showtime series, told Howard Stern when he asked of season 8 would mark the end of the show.

Now, it's safe to say Danes has warmed up to motherhood as she and Dancy prepare to welcome their second child together.

She and 42 year old Hannibal actor Dancy are already parents to a five year old son, named Cyrus Michael Christopher, born in late 2012.

But she did joke that if it's a girl, they could name the little one "Howardina", after Stern.

Danes and Dancy met in 2006 on the set of Evening and tied the knot in 2009 in an intimate ceremony in France. "I haven't told anyone, you are the first person I told", she told Howard.

"Really conflicted", Danes said about the show coming to an end.

The radio mogul asked her to reveal the baby's sex, humorously hinting that he'd welcome another exclusivity. He was raised well, went to great schools, he's a clever guy and he makes me giggle... "It's just what I do for a living anyway". "Yeah, that's it", she said when the host brought up the fact that the next season is rumored to be the drama's last. "I feel so fortunate, in that I've had this arrow-straight focus that I wanted to act".

She also praised her husband in the same interview, saying he is "just the right partner for me".
