Benedict Cumberbatch’s cumberbaby has arrived! Wife Sophie Hunter has given birth a baby boy!

A rep for Cumberbatch says in a statement, “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.” The newborn’s name, weight, or exact birthdate was not revealed.

As Gossip Cop reported, Cumberbatch and Hunter’s engagement was announced via a public listing last November. In January, they were reported to be expecting their first child after the actress-director stepped out with what appeared to be a baby bump. The pregnancy was confirmed shortly after, and Cumberbatch went on to get some hilarious baby name suggestions from Ellen DeGeneres.

Cumberbatch and Hunter then wed on Valentine’s Day, with a ceremony on the Isle of Wight, as Gossip Cop noted at the time. The actor had to immediately return to work after, leading Jimmy Kimmel to give him a mock honeymoon a few days later. The newlyweds then appeared at the Academy Awards at the end of February (see photo above). Cumberbatch was nominated for Best Actor, but lost to Eddie Redmayne. Gossip Cop is betting, however, that he feels like a big winner right now. Congrats to the family!
