“I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon.” Benedict Cumberbatch’s publicist said in an official statement.
The exciting pregnancy news come just two months after Benedict Cumberbatch, thirty eight, and Sophie Hunter, thirty eight, got engaged.
Following their engagement, Sophie Hunter sparked pregnancy rumours at the Palm Springs International Film Festival 2015 earlier this month when fans took notice of her flowing dress that appeared baggy around her midsection.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter met while shooting the thriller Burlesque Fairytales in the year 2009; however, they weren’t confirmed as a couple until June 2014 after they were photographed together at the French Open.
Asked in early 2014 if he wanted to settle down, the actor had stated, “I can imagine that i will look back at this point in my life and think, wow, that was really extraordinary. But at the same time I hope I’m looking back and going, Oh, that was the moment I got on with life and realized things beyond myself. Without using words like marriage, children and family, although I have just used those words; put it this way, I hope I’ve got other people to look back with me at that point. I hope I’m surrounded by family.”
Sophie previously had a long term relationship with sculptor Conrad Shawcross whom she met while studying at Oxford. The couple split in early 2010.
On the other hand, in 1999, Benedict began dating actress Olivia Poulet, whom he met while they were studying. They amicably broke up after being together for twelve years. Post that, he dated a London based artist Anna James.
On November 05 2014, Benedict Cumberbatch’s engagement to theatre and opera director Sophie Hunter was announced in the Forthcoming Marriages section of The Times.
