Benedict Cumberbatch’s Old-Fashioned Engagement Annoucement


Nobody does it quite like Benedict.

The Sherlock star heartthrob announced his engagement to theater director and actress Sophie Hunter with a classified ad in the Times, UK. In this modern times where celebrities are in a race to show off their over-the-top celebrations, Mr Cumberbatch, always elusive when it comes to his personal life, chose an old-fashioned way to let his fans know he is now officially off the market. The short ad reads: “Mr. BT. Cumberbatch and Miss S.I. Hunter: The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London.”


Of course fans all over the world, some call themselves “Cumberbitches”, were shocked with today’s announcement. To confirm the news, they searched the internet and social media sites, only to find a statement from Star Trek star’s rep: “I am delighted to confirm this morning’s announcement that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are engaged.” Sorry, ladies, it’s true!

Benedict, 38, met his now fianc√© Sophie, 36, at the set of Burlesque Fairytales in 2009. Media could confirm their relationship only last June, when they were photographed at the French Open. Last year, at an interview with Daily Mail he stated his wish to settle down and have a child. Seems like he is one step closer to his heart’s desire. We wish the young couple much happiness!
