Benedict Cumberbatch and his fiancee Sophie Hunter have confirmed they are expecting their first child.
A spokesperson for Benedict confirmed the couple’s happy news, stating, “I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon.”
The Imitation Game star is very excited about becoming a father.
An insider recently revealed, “Sophie is a few months along, and both she and Benedict are very excited about it. They are also quietly planning to marry in early spring.”
Benedict and Sophie, who became engaged in early November, are planning to tie the knot much sooner than expected.
Sophie was last seen publicly on Saturday with her future husband at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Sophie wore a colorful Just Cavalli gown and attempted to hide her bump with her clutch.
Cumberbatch previously spoke about wanting to get married and have children.
He told Elle Japan last year, “It’s a wonderful thing to get married young and become a father. I used to think that I’d get married by my mid-thirties and have children. But now I think I can wait. I’m no longer in a hurry to get married.”
Congrats to the couple on their baby news.
