Benedict Cumberbatch & Sophie Hunter Welcome A Baby Boy & Their Announcement Is Perfect
It's official: the Cumber-baby is finally here! According to People, Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter have welcomed a baby boy. The news was announced in a fashion that seems perfect for the generally low-key, private couple: It was confirmed in a simple statement by Cumberbatch's representative in a statement, which read, "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." Though a name hasn't been released, I'm sure it's just as adorable as the baby boy himself is. Congrats to the happy family!
In January, Cumberbatch and Hunter announced they were expecting their first child together via the Sherlock star's rep, who said, "I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon." You know who else was over the moon, save for those who thought they would birth Cumberbatch's first child? The many Cumberbatch fans who were thrilled for the actor.
Basically, the world rejoiced in Cumberbatch and Hunter's news. From Cumber-baby name generators to analyzing the perfect Cumber-bun names to looking back at photos of a young Cumberbatch, fans of the Oscar nominee celebrated the great news in as many ways as possible. Now that the baby is actually here, well, I can only imagine how fans are taking the news. Are they crying tears of joy? Are they jumping in the air because they're so excited? Are they throwing "Welcome to the World Baby Cumberbatch" parties?
Whatever the case, Cumberbatch and Hunter's baby is already receiving so much love. Congrats to the happy couple on their latest addition!
