Benedict Cumberbatch Expecting First Child
This is such happy news for this adorable couple!
On Tuesday, Jan. 6, it was revealed that Benedict and his fiancee, Sophie, are expecting, via Page Six.
Just three days earlier on Jan. 3, Benedict brought Sophie along to the Palm Springs International Film Festival where she wore a noticeably loose top and kept her handbag in front of her stomach at all times.
Thankfully, Benedict’s rep released this statement to HollywoodLife.com, confirming the happy news:
“I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
Benedict & Sophie Planning To Wed Before Baby?
Although it’s unknown how far along Sophie could be exactly, if she’s already trying to hide a baby bump she has to be past the first trimester at the least.
However, a source close to the couple has revealed that they are already working out their wedding plans.
“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,” explained the source.
So, could this wedding be before the baby arrives, or after? I guess we’ll find out soon enough!
