Congratulations are in order once again for Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter. Just two months after news that the couple had gotten engaged—announced in the London Times, classily—it has been revealed that they are expecting their first child. Rumors and reports have abounded in the past few days, but a rep for the pair confirmed it to US Weekly this afternoon: “I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon.”

So there you have it. A Cumberbatch-Hunter family is fully underway. If you were checking your bank balance to find funds for a suitable wedding gift, maybe a gender-neutral pair of baby booties would do the trick?

But please, do the world a favor, and let’s not call their wee little sprog a Cumberbaby.
