When Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter arrived on the Emmy Awards gold carpet, they brought along a surprise guest. Sophie is pregnant with the couple’s third child!

Regal in Yellow

The 40-year-old theatre director wore a high-necked, textured yellow gown to the awards ceremony. Paired with a claret-red lip and a sleek updo, the look was very mod, very Swinging 60s. But we were immediately distracted by the hint of a baby bump beneath.

Baby Makes 5

Benedict and Sophie looked very much in love as they posed for photos before heading into the theater. The happy couple, who has been married for three years, confirmed that they are indeed expecting another bundle of joy. Sophie and Benedict are parents to Hal Auden (born in 2017) and Kit Carlton (born in 2015). They married on Valentine’s Day of 2015, a few months before welcoming their first child.

Will Benedict Bring Home the Gold?

The talented British actor and occasional Sherlock Holmes was nominated for his leading role in the Showtime miniseries Patrick Melrose. He’s now tied with legendary actor Laurence Olivier for a record number of noms in that category.

In July, he dished on what it means to receive so many accolades for his work: “It’s amazing. I don’t know what to say about that really. That’s something to put on your gravestone,” he said. “I don’t know — yeah, I’m speechless. That’s my very English reaction to that. Maybe I should try other categories? Art direction?”

Style to Spare

Last night, Benedict’s unconventional looks were accentuated by a short-cropped hairstyle. While we miss Sherlock’s floppy locks, we can’t deny that the 42-year-old looks hot with his new shorter style. Regardless of whether he picks up another award, he’s already won the “Most Adorably British Family” award in our books.
