Benedict Cumberbatch And Fiancee Are Expecting Their First Child

60th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards - Red Carpet Arrivals

Benedict Cumberbatch is about to become a dad! The 38-year old British actor, who rose to prominence with his brilliant interpretation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary detective Sherlock Holmes in the BBC One’s acclaimed series Sherlock, is also up for a Golden Globe for best actor for his role of Alan Turing in the WWII drama The Imitation Game.

The actor and his fiancée Sophie Hunter announced their upcoming nuptials a few months ago with a simple, low-key yet classy announcement in the Times, and now insider sources reveal another bit of happy news – the couple is expecting a baby.

According to the source, Sophie has been pregnant for several months and the couple couldn’t be happier. Cumberbatch’s fiancée, who is also an actress and theatre director, disguised her baby bump with a maxidress and a strategically placed clutch last Saturday at the Palm Springs Film Festival, where she was supporting her fiancé and his movie, The Imitation Game.
