Actress Claire Danes welcomes a baby boy
NEW YORK (AP) — Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy have welcomed a baby boy.
A publicist for the actors told The Associated Press on Friday that the couple gave birth Monday in New York.
This is the second child for the 39-year-old actress and 42-year-old actor. They are already parents to their 5-year-old son Cyrus Michael Christopher. The actors have been married since 2009.
Danes, the “Homeland” actress, has won three Emmy Awards and four Golden Globes. The British actor Dancy starred in the TV series “Hannibal.”
Exhibition of da Vinci painting delayed
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The unveiling of Leonardo da Vinci’s painting “Salvator Mundi” at the Louvre Abu Dhabi has been indefinitely postponed, authorities said Monday.
Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism announced the delay on Twitter, saying “more details will be announced soon.” The department did not respond to a request for comment.
The Renaissance oil painting of Christ, whose title in Latin means “Savior of the World,” sold for a record-breaking $450 million at an auction in New York at Christie’s in November.
The painting depicts a blue-robed Jesus holding a crystal orb and gazing directly at the viewer.
It was to be displayed from Sept. 18.
