Congrats! Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie are expecting a baby


A huge congrats is in order for Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter – they are expecting their third child.

The couple revealed they are expecting a baby together after Sophie debuted her gorgeous growing baby bump on the gold carpet at the 2018 Emmy Awards last night.

E! News confirmed that the theatre and opera director is pregnant as she stunned alongside her actor husband in a sleeveless canary yellow gown, which was high necked and had an A-line cut.

She and Benedict are already parents to two sons – 3-year-old Christopher and 18-month-old Hal Auden.

Benedict recently spoke about fatherhood and his job, saying: “Lots of people, especially women, get told, ‘Oh parenthood is really going to affect your career’ – and it does, but for the better I think.”

“I know I’m in a very privileged position in my career but I think everyone, even if they’re in a challenging time in their life, draws strength from their children. They are your inspiration. It adds to your work, it never takes away.”
