Benedict Cumberbatch: 'Sherlock' Star Says He's 'Nesting' With Newly-Married Wife Sophie Hunter

Benedict Cumberbatch is nesting.

The 38-year-old "Sherlock" star, whose wife, theater director Sophie Hunter, is pregnant, told the Mirror, "I am nesting for my family and just living a London life."

"I want to live as much a normal life as I can," he insisted.

According to Cumberbatch, it is possible to be both a famous actor and a good parent.

"I think there are plenty of good actors who are fathers," he said in a recent interview with ET Canada. "I mean, you only have to look at Daniel Day-Lewis as an example and a lot of my dear friends: Mark Strong, I mean, I could go on and on. I think what children do is enhance your life, they don't inhibit it. They don't limit it, they give you inspiration and depths of understanding of the human condition and what it is to be on this planet and what our purpose is, that goes well beyond anything a childless actor could hope for."

"I know, I can speak for many other friends of mine," Cumberbatch added. "Martin (Freeman) is another example who springs to mind, who managed to balance a home life and a work life. It's not easy, but then everyone is doing it, everyone I know who has children is managing it, so it's not impossible."
