    Benedict and his bff Keira are both going to be first time parents at the same time. That’s weird and cool.

  • Betty Bucket

    So it was a baby momma drama after all. Although very stylishly orchestrated. Ben, I know you’re a gent, but you don’t have to marry her, ya know. It’s 2015!

  • Marie

    I knew it…………………Geez. Always follow the step. 1) date the person for a long period 2) get married or live together 3) get children. Do not do shotgun wedding is soo overrating.

  • Mimi Y

    Congrats to them, I bet his and Keira’s babies are going to be BFF’s, too! :D

    IDIOT

    LOL, it was so obvious for the past 3 appearances she made with BC on the carpets. SO OBVIOUS. But right up until TODAY the Cumbercrazies were accusing this woman of everything from having “a Christmas dinner bump” to “arching her back to LOOK pregnant” to “trolling the fans by wearing a billowing dress”. The crazy that surrounds Benedict Cumberbatch is something that should be studied by scientists, I swear.

    Oh, he ain’t gonna marry her. The engagement announcement and ring were meant to try and pre-empt the gossip media from reporting that their relationship was totally casual and she was knocked up with an unplanned pregnancy. But folks aren’t stupid. This woman has the bump well into second trimester — probably 5 months. Which means Cumberbatch likely waited until she got through her first trimester before phoning in that stupid engagement announcement to the papers in the UK.

    I love how everyone knows exactly how it happened, why it happened and how she is total b**** who trapped him and how he is stupid idiot who let himself be trapped.

    Has anyone even considered that they might actually love each other?
    That it might have happened by accident, yet they are genuinely happy about?

    I don’t really know Benedict, but he doesn’t strike me like the type of guy to go for the obvious Hollywood beauty full of fame and drama. I’m a big fan of his and she looks like a very nice girl, very pretty and that’s as much as one can get from a tabloid picture. Plus they are both of certain age and at that point in life you stop taking ages to make decisions and when you feel it you just go for it.

    I wish them both best of luck.

    They looked really awkward when they’re posing together, barely no chemistry at all, totally not living it up to the “happy couple” hype.
    Ben even had more chemistry with his other friends than with Sophie.
    This is what fueled the naysayers more with their accidental knock up theory or campaigning for oscar one.

  • vn_102

    It did looks like he proposed coz he knocked her up.
    They didn’t have newly engaged happy couple looks nor oh so excited with first baby looks written all over them.

  • Anya

    Well, maybe she is just not used to the spotlight. I didn’t see any video of the two on the red carpet and pics can be always bit misleading.

    Or maybe all the haters are right. Who knows, but it’s still sad that many people immediately assume the worst and sort of hope that things will turn ugly only so they could say “I knew it.”

  • Cheyenne

    Thank you. These so-called Cumberbitches are having a worse meltdown than the Twihards did when Pattinson and KStew broke up.

  • Cheyenne

    Damned if I can figure out what they see in him. He looks like a cross between a lizard and a space alien. But I wish him and his fianceé and their expected baby the best of luck.

  • Cheyenne

    You know what? I used to think he looked like a cucumber. I was wrong. He looks like an asparagus.

    Such adventurous dress! That chocolate brown leather dress she wore is from Emilia Wickstead http://sophiehunter.net/post/104610829845/sophie-hunter-in-emilia-wickstead-british
