The Star Trek actor is over the moon
Benedict Cumberbatch and theatre director Sophie Hunter — who got engaged in November — have confirmed they’re set welcome their first child into the world later this year. A spokesperson for the couple told PEOPLE.com, “I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon.”
A source recently revealed the couple are planning to get married before their baby arrives. The insider said, “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.”
The 38-year-old British heartthrob previously admitted his mother was desperate for him to start a family. Asked if he was planning to have children, he said, “Oh, my God. Well, my mother is also waiting for Cumberbabies.”
