Sorry ladies, Benedict Cumberbatch is off the market.

The beloved actor and his girlfriend Sophie Hunter are engaged to be married, and they announced the news in a classified advert in U.K. newspaper The Times.

According to Time magazine, the excerpt read: “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.”

The 38-year-old "Imitation Game" star has always stayed mum on the subject of his love life, but has reportedly been dating theater director Hunter, 36, for a while. They were spotted together at the French Open in June and most recently were photographed out in London on Oct. 18. Cumberbatch previously dated actress Olivia Poulet. They amicably broke up in 2011 after 12 years together.

Congrats to to soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Cumberbatch!
