The cast of Homeland had a lot to celebrate on Sunday night after winning an Emmy for outstanding drama series. But the show’s star, Claire Danes — who picked up a gold statuette of her own for outstanding lead actress in a drama series — she was also congratulated for being an expectant mother.

Clad in a bright yellow Lanvin ensemble on her big day, Danes told PEOPLE the outfit was “baby bump-friendly.”

“[I feel] incredible,” she said. “This time last year, I was presenting, and I was so excited to share our work with the world. And now it’s finally out there. To have people be so excited about it is so fulfilling and very, very rewarding.”

Equally overjoyed for Danes is her husband Hugh Dancy, who told PEOPLE “of course” he is thrilled, adding, “It’s been a great year.”
