Remember that time when we announced that Benedict Cumberbatch is engaged to his no-longer-a-secret girlfriend, Sophie Hunter? You remembered, don’t you? Although that piece of news broke oh, only about a million fangirls’ hearts, it is nonetheless a piece of happy news to hear.
But now, Benedict Cumberbatch’s publicist has brought another piece of news to the world, stating that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are currently expecting their first child. That’s right, everyone. He is going to be a father soon!
The star’s publicist confirmed the news through a statement to The Guardian:
I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon.
The baby will be their first child together and the publicist has also confirmed that the engaged couple will hold a wedding ceremony this Spring, which is reportedly earlier than anticipated.
Due to his much-acclaimed performance as Alan Turing in “The Imitation Game”, the 38-year-old actor has been attending multiple awards ceremonies with Hunter over the past couple of months. As Benedict Cumberbatch is nominated for the “Best Actor in a Drama” award at the 2015 Golden Globes, the two are expected to make another red carpet appearance this Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, California.
Don’t say we didn’t share but if we are lucky, perhaps the actor will reveal more details about their wedding plan this Sunday at the 2015 Golden Globes. After all, we are all expecting to see another gorgeous baby born into the world.
Congrats, Benedict Cumberbatch & Sophie Hunter! 😉
