London: Actor Benedict Cumberbatch is set to become a father for the first time as his fiancee, Sophie Hunter is pregnant.
Cumberbatch and Hunter announced their engagement at the end of 2014 and now there is further joy for the couple, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
According to a source, now the couple might walk down the aisle earlier than they planned.
"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,” a source told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column.
The couple was spotted at the Palm Springs International Film Festival last weekend and 36-year-old Hunter was reportedly hiding her changing frame in a flowing Just Cavalli maxidress and a cleverly-placed bag.
