Benedict Cumberbatch will soon become a father, according to a new report. His fiancée Sophie Hunter is said to be pregnant with their first child.
Showbiz Spy reports that the 36-year-old opera playwright and director is already two months along. The British couple decided to keep the happy news to themselves first before they announce it to the public.
“Benedict is delighted,” the site’s source, who is apparently close to the couple but is not authorized to speak on their behalf, claimed. “She is only two months along, so they’re keen to keep it a secret until they’re past the three months stage. They will deny the pregnancy until they want to announce it. They’re very private.”
The 38-year-old “Sherlock” star and Hunter announced their engagement in a very traditional way, with a newspaper announcement early in November. They haven’t revealed a date set yet for their wedding, but the insider claimed that they would get married before their baby comes out.
“They plan to get married before the baby is born,” the insider continued. “They’re very traditional and don’t want their baby to be born out of wedlock.”
The dubious report did not include the date of their wedding.
