Is Benedict Cumberbatch Having a Baby with Sophie Hunter?!

Benedict Cumberbatch‘s fiancee Sophie Hunter is reportedly pregnant with the couple’s first child, according to Page Six.

The 38-year-old The Imitation Game actor, who announced his engagement via a newspaper notice back in November, is supposedly “delighted” to become a dad.

Sophie is a few months along, and both she and Benedict are very excited about it. They are also quietly planning to marry in early spring,” a source said.

The couple stepped out this past weekend in Palm Springs and Sophie disguised a possible baby bump under a flowing maxi dress and with her purse in front of her stomach.

    And suddenly, this strange and rushed relationship begins to make sense. Would someone like to tell them that this is 2015 and you don’t have to marry because of a mistake?

  • dalovelee

    That’s true..that you don’t have to..but BC is a classy dude who clearly is into English tradition..and I think it would be unbecoming with his English upbringing and classy British image that he’d not marry his baby’s mamma.

  • Cheyenne

    If it’s true, I sure hope the baby looks like her. He looks like a lizard.

  • Cheyenne

    Unless it wasn’t a mistake. Who knows?

  • Aching

    Now I am really unhappy and utterly crestfallen. She probably trapped him; of course, he’d ask her to marry him. He is a gentleman in the utmost sense after all. Where is Watson? He needs to get on this case ASAP: the Case of the Unwitting Groom. Someone needs to tell Benedict that he does not have to marry her. Golly.

  • Aching

    She looks sneaky to me… as in can’t be trusted. Now, I shall return to aiding my aching heart, having lost my Benedict to duplicity.

  • disqus_2u2D311nt0

    well DUHas if we didnt know all along come on Ben who are you kidding

  • Gina

    Trapped? I sure hope he wouldn’t date someone he’d ever feel trapped by. Give him some credit by trusting that he is a grown man with his own sense of agency.

  • ES71

    People, you are all so cynical. Trapped him? She is a pretty woman with her own credentials. She doesn’t need to trap anyone.
    I like her. And excited that they are going to have a baby ! They are not getting any younger. At 38/36 it is risky to wait too long to have a family.

  • MasterandMargareta

    Considering the “source” is unnamed and this is from Page Six (notoriously unreliable), don’t go putting on your mourning garb till his PR or himself confirms it. Gotta love those “reliable, unnamed” sources, don’t you?

  • bgarcia

    Oscar gold! Suck it, Redmayne–unless you and your wife can pop out a pup before voting closes, better luck next time!

  • ES71

    > Someone needs to tell Benedict that he does not have to marry her. Golly.

    Please, he knows. He managed to stay single all this time despite women throwing themselves on him.
    I don’t believe for a second that he is some innocent boy who doesn’t know how these things work.

  • ES71

    Lol, I don’t know who will win bur Redmayne is several years younger and anyway I feel both of them will have plenty of opportunity to win an Oscar later, if they don’t win this time. They are both so talented.

  • Aching

    Yes, trapped. Surely, it’s my opinion and while my view is not necessarily a fact, a person can be smart, mature, and independent of thought and still make a commitment out of a deep sense of obligation and decorum. It happens. Humans act in contradictory ways all the time and that is not to say that Benedict is not fond of her. I, of course, wish Benedict the best.

  • bgarcia

    Silly goose! The Oscars are not about talent (otherwise they’d just call them the Streep awards and you’d never see another actress win one). These boys have been campaigning for months for their shot at the gold, shaking hands and (in this case) making babies.

  • Veronica

    Don’t worry. This won’t last.

  • pebcak
  • Scarlett

    Oh god forbid he loves her and is happy and wants to be with her.

  • Helene

    If she is pregnant and not just Oscar baiting for him, like he is the new Hathaway, then maybe she should stop drinking wine and champagne in public events.

  • ell

    lol at people saying she trapped him. you do realise it takes two people to make a baby, right? that is if she’s even pregnant, which we do not know.

  • AK

    hallelujah!!

  • Nicola

    They look like fraternal twins.

  • Gina

    That’s fine. Your opinion is your opinion. Although I did get a biased fangirly vibe from your first post.

  • disqus_ui2fFmziaB

  • vn_102

    Shouldn’t they both looks happier, more excited and have more chemistry if this was planned like any normal average joe with their first wedding and first baby eh?

  • Banes

    It all seems very rushed. I believe they’ve been dating for under a year, engaged in November (quite possibly too early to early to know she was pregnant) then a baby already. I’ve no doubt they’re in love, but will it last past that lovey dovey stage of a new relationship? It doesn’t seem the most sensible thing to be getting married/having babies so soon into a relationship.
    I think what we’ve got here is the tick tock of the biological clock – on both sides. He’s made no secret of his desire to settle down and have kids, he has a girlfriend who is 36 years old and they know they just have to get on with it.
    I agree there’s no need to get married though – with more than half of kids in the UK born out of wedlock it would hardly be something outlandish. Interestingly his parents were only married a few months before he was born (although they’d been together several years), so maybe he’s just following their lead.
