Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be a dad. Again!

E! News reports that the Sherlock star's wife, Sophie Hunter, is pregnant with their second child. The couple's first son, Christopher, was born just over a year ago.

And if his famous friends are to be believed, Cumberbatch is definitely great-dad material. Back when Hunter's first pregnancy was announced, Cumberbatch's The Imitation Game co-star, Allen Leech told E! news, "If he puts the same amount of dedication and love into raising his child as he does into his work, he is going to be the greatest dad of all time."


Congrats on Cumberbaby number 2, Benedict and Sophie! Hopefully your children will grow up to be just as adorable and British as you are.
