Apparently being engaged and generally adored the Internet over isn't enough for Benedict Cumberbatch and fiancé Sophie Hunter, as the happy couple have confirmed that they're also expecting their first child. Some people, huh? "I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child," their rep tells Us Weekly. "They are both over the moon." Of course they are.


So what should the future Hunter-Cumberbatch spawn and instant meme be named? We consulted the Benedict Cumberbatch Name Generator to find out. If it's a girl, Buttercup or Boobytrap. And if it's a boy, Cogglesnatch or Rinkydink. Naturally. All the best to the happy couple!
