Handsome 'Sherlock Holmes' star, Benedict Cumberbatch is off market officially! After announcing his engagement a few months back, the expecting father got hitched to his fiancee, Sophie Hunter on the special occasion of Valentine's Day.
'The Imitation Game' star Benedict Cumberbatch and his pregnant fiancee Sophie Hunter secretly tied the knot on Valentines Day in presence of family and close friends.
The 38-year-old Oscar-nominated actor and Hunter, 36, an actress and theatre director, got married at the 12th-century St Peter and St Paul Church near Brighstone, reported Telegraph online. The celebrity couple is expecting their first child together later this year.
Actor Andrew Scott, who plays Cumberbatch's TV nemesis, Moriarty, on 'Sherlock', is said to have been among the guests. Hunter was shielded from cameras and onlookers by umbrellas as she entered the church. About 40 minutes later, the couple emerged to cheers and left in a vintage Jaguar. The couple decided not to pose for pictures after the service, but went straight to the reception.
Cumberbatch and Hunter, who met while filming the 2009 movie 'Burlesque Fairlytales', announced in January that they are expecting their first child.
Tom Hiddleston was also snapped at the wedding of Benedict Cumberbatch in Britain.
A day before the wedding, it was reported that Cumberbatch will have a romantic Valentine's Day which would be memorable as he will marry his valentine, Sophie Hunter. British papers first broke the happy news.
