Photos Of Benedict Cumberbatch & Sophie Hunter's Baby Don't Exist, But Baby Benedict Pics Are The Next Best Thing

Ever wonder what Benedict Cumberbatch's baby boy Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch (that alliteration is fantastic) looks like? Well, you're going to continue to wonder, because photos of Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter's baby don't exist — well, not that the couple has shared publicly. Their son was born in June 2015 and at the time of the announcement, they released the following statement: "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." That statement says a lot, because based on how they have yet to share photos of Christopher, it proves they really do cherish their privacy, especially when it involves their child.

Though, can you really blame them? When it comes to being in the spotlight (and a huge celeb like Cumberbatch), I'm sure they want to shield their son from the spotlight, the paparazzi, and everything else that comes with the celebrity life they lead. Yes, they've been spotted taking family walks on occasion, but neither the Sherlock actor or his wife have released photos of their own accord. Until they actually do that, fans are just going to have to use their imagination about what or who Christopher looks like.

There's a good chance he inherited Cumberbatch's looks, so if you just take a gander at photos of the Oscar-nominated actor when he was younger, it's basically the same thing. It's pretty much like you're looking at Christopher. For example, here is the Doctor Strange star as a baby, which is probably what Christopher looked like when he was born, so who even needs to see a baby picture, right?

Here's another of the Emmy-winning actor as a little boy, aka what Christopher will most likely look like in a few years:

And if you're in the mood to look into the future, here's Christopher, I mean Cumberbatch, as a teenager:

It's crazy how much Christopher looks like his dad, isn't it? All jokes aside, it'd be nice to see a photo of him, because I'd like to know if there is a mini-Benedict Cumberbatch walking around.
