Page Six reports, the couple is expecting a child together. Shortly after the news leaked, his reps confirmed the pregnancy with a statement.
The statement says: “I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon…” the dreaded, overused “Over the moon”! And the same clinical language from their wedding announcement. But for such a private couple they have confirmed everything quickly. Congrats!
At the time of the initial report, it was reported that Sophie was in her late first/ early second trimester. And although Benedict is playing coy about a wedding date and location in the media, insisting that Sherlock comes first for now, there is a vague wedding date. And it’s within the next few months.
A source reveals, “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.”
Previously, Benedict said of his fiancee and soon-to-be-mother of his baby: “It’s an amazing thing to find somebody you love. It’s amazing to find somebody you love at all, let alone somebody who loves you back in the same way and to the same degree.” He added, “To have Sophie in my life is something I am incredibly grateful for and very excited about. It’s a bit of a golden moment for me right now and I am loving it.”
Below are the photos from the Palm Springs International Film Festival where media outlets thought Sophie was hiding a bump behind her clutch on the red carpet. They were right!
