    Default Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter expecting a cumber-baby

    Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie expecting a cumber-baby

    Benedict Cumberbatch is to become a father for the first time. The “Imitation Game” star’s fiancée, Sophie Hunter, is pregnant, Page Six can exclusively reveal.

    The 38-year-old actor — who’s a contender for the best actor Golden Globe this weekend for his role in the WWII drama and is expected to garner an Oscar nomination — is delighted and excited about becoming a dad, we’re told.
    Sources also said the low-key couple, who were engaged in early November, are planning to marry sooner than expected, in the next few months.

    One source told Page Six: “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.”

    Cumberbatch and Hunter, 36, an actress and theater director, were most recently spotted together last Saturday at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, where she disguised her bump with a long Just Cavalli maxidress and a discreetly placed purse.

    The festival honored “The Imitation Game” — which stars Cumberbatch as mathematician Alan Turing, who broke the Nazi Enigma code during WWII — with an award for ensemble cast. His co-star Keira Knightley, who didn’t make it to Palm Springs, is also pregnant for the first time.

    On the red carpet, Cumberbatch, who is back filming TV series “Sherlock,” which turned him into an international sex symbol, politely sidestepped reporters’ questions about his and Hunter’s upcoming nuptials. When asked about their wedding plans, he said he was busy reprising his role as Sherlock Holmes and, “One thing at a time!”

    Cumberbatch and Hunter announced their engagement with a modest, somewhat old-fashioned notice in the “forthcoming marriages” section of the Times of London in November.

    When asked about the charming announcement, he told USA Today, “It’s what I would have done if I wasn’t famous.” His spokeswoman didn’t get back to us Tuesday night.

    "exclusively reveal"? like the picture of her in that dress wasn't obvious enough.

    I have entertained myself a lot at the #sophie hunter tag at tumblr. Half of tag is full of people that are sure that Sophie is an escort, the baby couldn't be Bens and their relationship is a sham masterminded by Harvey Weinstein. Expect this to be in blind items soon.
    People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.

    He's been vocal about wanting kids for ages, so I can buy that he's found a nice, well to do lady from a similar background and knocked her up. (Obviously, with her consent - maybe she wants the husband and baby thing as well, and let's face it, being married to a well connected second generation actor is only a useful thing for an "artistic"/barely known director)

    Wonder if it'll stop him from (allegedly, according to blind items) using the services of high end escorts.

    There are photos all over the web of her with champagne at the GGs and they both looked tipsy as hell in after party photos. At 36 pregnant with her first baby, she'd better reign that in.

    Considering the father, I would say a quaint look of fetal alcohol syndrome is unavoidable regardless.

    I hope these aren't gonna offend anyone, but I thought since there's always been much fun with Katie Holmes and Beyonce's questionable baby bumps, I thought of posting these here.

    No, no, NOOO. Of course he's not the boy's father. Look at the turn ups on his jeans!

    I'm not one of those who believe she's faking a pregnancy, but I do think it's weird she's stayed the exact same size for three months. Unless maybe she took a page out of Katie Holmes' book and had the baby already but is padding because they want to try and shave a couple of months the kid's age (I know ENTy claims Hunter got knocked up by boyfriend who's not Cumberbatch and is trying to manipulate the timeline, who knows).

    One thing that does stand out is weird as that Vogue did an article on her in her wedding dress and she had an obvious baby bump in the main photo, then in the other photo they airbrushed her with a flat stomach in the same gown.

    You mean these two pics? Yes, these were taken on the same day end of January by famous photographer Annie Leibovitz. I have difficulties to believe that Annie Leibovitz would "allow" airbrushing. I could be wrong but I think her photographies are seen as art. Also why make changes? Why let her sit on the couch?
    No, no, NOOO. Of course he's not the boy's father. Look at the turn ups on his jeans!
