Benedict Cumberbatch & Sophie Hunter are Engaged!

Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are engaged to be married!

The news was broken with a “forthcoming marriages” announcement located on page 57 of The Times‘ issue on Wednesday (November 5), and his rep confirmed it to People.

Here is what the announcement read: “Mr BT. Cumberbatch and Miss S.I. Hunter: The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London.”

It has never been confirmed that Benedict and Sophie are indeed dating, but they have been spotted together on several occasions over the last few months. The names of their parents also are accurate in the announcement.

    He’s a good actor but I don’t understand the “Cumbab*tches” phenomenon. All the best to him and the wife-to-be.


    In the british vernacular, this is what they mean by a “beard”.

  • Oh Yes!

    He is mines! Please, don’t get married. :-( Then again, I want you to be happy, so do whatever makes you happy (within reason of course). Now, can we get some more Sherlock! I am tired of waiting. More episodes should be filmed.
