Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter Expecting A Baby

Benedict Cumberbatch

There's a Cumberbatch bun in the oven!

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch is reportedly expecting a baby with his partner, Sophie Hunter.

The Guardian reports:

"In a statement to the Guardian, the star’s publicist said: “I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon.”"

The couple are expected to marry later this year, and announced their engagement towards the end of last year.

Unsurprisingly, given the love fans feel towards the Sherlock star, the internet virtually exploded with the news. But my favourite tweet of all on the subject of the Cumberbatch baby came from Ellen DeGeneres, who tweeted:

"Benedict #Cumberbatch is gonna be a dad! I already thought of some names- Englebert, Harpsichord, Glockenspiel or Carl."

Genius.

And congrats to the parents-to-be.
