Benedict Cumberbatch Is Now a Daddy to Baby #2
When Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter (who has reportedly changed her named to Sophie Cumberbatch) announced that they were expecting their first baby, we tried to predict the creative name the little one would surely end up with. Though we failed to nail the tongue-twisting moniker back then (say Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch three times fast!), we won’t have to wrestle over pronunciation this time around, now that the couple has welcomed baby #2.
People has confirmed that the 40-year-old actor and the 39-year-old theater director who were married back in 2015 welcomed a second boy into the world on March 3. And though he wasn’t given a c-filled title like his big bro, the new bebe’s name is just as distinguished, and the family is surely proud to introduce little Hal Auden Cumberbatch.
