Another Cumberbaby is on the way! Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter are expanding their family and expecting their second child. Keep reading for more details on the joyous news!
Dr. Strange is going to be a daddy again! E! News reports that British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, 40, and his wife Sophie Hunter, 38, have a baby on the way. The pair arrived at his film’s big Hollywood movie premiere Oct. 20 looking gorgeous and dapper, but the site says that under Sophie’s gorgeous black sleeveless column dress is a growing baby bump!
Benedict didn’t give off any obvious signs that his second child is on the way – i.e. no patting Sophie on the belly or anything cheesy like that. He looked super handsome in a black velvet jacket that he worked like no one’s business. But his amazing flashing smile showed that he’s absolutely thrilled with life right now and that in addition to his sure to be blockbuster Dr. Strange, he’s going to be a daddy again!
Benedict and Sophie married on Valentine’s Day 2015 and welcomed their first child, son Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch, in June of that year. At the time they released a statement that read, “Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are delighted to announce the arrival of their beautiful son. We would kindly ask everyone to respect the family’s privacy during these next few precious weeks.” They kept their family’s privacy locked down long after that as we haven’t really seen much of Christopher, as they’ve done a great job of keeping him out of the public eye. We can’t recall seeing pics of the tot and Benedict and Sophie aren’t big social media hounds…he doesn’t even have his own Twitter or Instagram accounts!
