I really thought he should have won the Oscar for his portrayal of Alan Turing in The Imitation Game. But, Benedict Cumberbatch won big time over the weekend.

Just a day after Benedict, 38, was honoured by Queen Elizabeth II for his charitable contributions and work in the performing arts, the actor and his wife, actress/director Sophie Hunter, welcomed a baby boy!

On Saturday evening (June 13), a spokesperson for the couple shared that they are “delighted to announce the arrival of their beautiful son.”

This is the first child for Benedict and Sophie, who tied the knot earlier this year.

Congrats to the family!
