He adds, "Everyone wants to know when I’m going to settle down and who is going to be Mrs Cumberbatch. I can’t wait to do an interview like this and just talk about my child."
He continues to speak passionately about children, and says, "I was only used to my band of brothers at prep school. I was always the one at parties who looked after the younger children.
