Benedict Cumberbatch broke the heart of all his fans when he very formerly announced his engagement to his girlfriend, opera and theatre director Sophie Hunter in the Times.
And now he’s ruining any remaining hope of you marrying him by making a baby. A Cumberbaby if you will.

A rep for the couple has confirmed to E! News that they are indeed expecting a child together. Sorry everyone.
“I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon,” Benedict’s PR person revealed in a statement.
Cumberbatch announced his engagement to Hunter back in November of 2014 after five months of courtship (read: fancy talk for dating).
The duo met on the set of 2009’s Burlesque Fairytales and confirmed their couple status in June 2014.
