Hunter, an actress, theater director and Oxford-educated woman, is reported to be a “few months along,” and the super adorable couple are said to be very excited about becoming parents. The couple stepped out for the 26th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival on Jan. 4, where Hunter looked fabulous in a flowing, silky gown but conspicuously kept her clutch in front of her stomach.

Elle UKgot it right with the caption of its tweet and photo that captured the mini baby bump with two words: Baby. News.

The world’s female hearts collectively broke when we found out back in November that the Sherlock heartthrob was off the market after he broke the news of his engagement with an announcement in the Forthcoming Marriage section of The Times of London.

Total swoon.

Cumberbatch grew up as an only child, but in a 2013 interview, he told Event magazine, “I’ve always wanted to be part of a bigger family.” He also said at that time, “I can’t wait to do an interview like this and just talk about my child.”

Well, Benedict, we can’t wait either.
