Benedict Cumberbatch Engaged To Sophie Hunter


38-year-old actor Benedict Cumberbatch is officially off the market and his wife-to-be is fellow actress and director Sophie Hunter.

The Sherlock Holmes star has made a classy, traditional engagement announcement in the Birth, Deaths and Marriages Section of the Times.

“Mr BT. Cumberbatch and Miss S.I. Hunter: The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London.”

The notice appeared under “forthcoming marriages” on page 57 of Wednesday’s publication.

Cumberbatch and Hunter have kept their relationship off the radar and were first seen together in public in June at the French Open.  The couple met while shooting Burlesque Fairytales in 2009.  According to the Daily Mail, the couple has yet to set a wedding date.

Expectedly, there has been a string of broken hearts on Twitters following the engagement.
