Cumberbitches, here's something else for you to obsess over: Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter are believed to be expecting baby No. 2.

According to E! News, the couple is adding to their family. The beans may have been spilled Thursday, when Cumberbatch and Hunter appeared on the red carpet in Los Angeles together to promote the actor's upcoming movie Doctor Strange. However, Hunter's black strapless gown wasn't shedding any light on the pregnancy rumors.

The couple welcomed their first child, son Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch, in June 2015, four months after their Valentine's Day wedding on England's Isle of Wight. The actor previously said he hoped to add to his brood, joking he might "go for a (Cumber)batch of boys."

However, it may be some time before Cumberbatch confirms the pregnancy — he's pretty protective of his privacy and earlier this year voiced his concerns about his "obsessive" fans, even accusing them of stalking him.

Congratulations to the couple if the pregnancy rumors are true. And let's hope they're ready for even more attention than they got the first time around — because those fans ain't going anywhere.
