Benedict Cumberbatch And Sophie Hunter Welcome Their First Child, And It's A...

Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter have welcomed their first child together — congrats!

After months of bump-watching at all of the glittering awards ceremonies, Benedict Cumberbatch and his theatre director wife Sophie Hunter have *finally* welcomed their first child and reports are saying that mother and baby are doing amazingly well. If this news doesn't brighten up your Monday, nothing will... 

The couple, who got married on the Isle of Wight in March while 37-year-old Sophie was expecting, have yet to reveal their baby's name but they have told us what they had. And it's a baby... 

BOY!

That's right, 38-year-old Sherlock actor Benedict will be sharing his first Father's Day this Sunday with a son. A spokesman for the couple, who were continually seen out and about together on the run-up to the birth, said: '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.'

While the couple are keeping mum about the name of their son, we reckon it's only a matter of time before they make a public reveal following the same lines as their engagement. The Times better save a spot in the 'Announcements' section from here on out... 

Of course, this isn't the only news surrounding Benedict this week — it has just been revealed that he is being honoured with a CBE for services to the performing arts and charity in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

As far as weeks go, this has to be the best one ever for the Cumberbatch's! Congratulations to Benedict, Sophie, their families and their bouncing baby boy.
