Benedict Cumberbatch Confirms Fiancée Pregnant with First Child: Congratulations (Video)

Looks like 2015 might be an even better year for British actor Benedict Cumberbatch than 2014 was. That’s because a Cumberbatch rep has just confirmed his fiancée, actress Sophie Hunter, is pregnant with their first child.

The representative said both Benedict Cumberbatch and his fiancee were ‘over the moon’.

Cumberbatch and Hunter have been engaged since November, although they had been dating for several years before that.

Meanwhile, you’ll see Cumberbatch (and probably Sophie) at the Golden Globes today, where he’s nominated for a Globe for his performance as Alan Turing in The Imitation Game. I’m going out on a limb, but I’m predicting he’s going to win.

As for the upcoming baby, all I can say, Benedict, is congratulations to you both. That’s lovely news.
