Benedict Cumberbatch and fiancée Sophie Hunter are expecting a baby together, a rep for Cumberbatch confirmed to the Daily Mail on Wednesday.

"'I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon," Cumberbatch's spokesman told the Daily Mail.

The Huffington Post has also reached out to Cumberbatch's rep for a comment.

The exciting baby news comes just two months after the "Sherlock" star and Hunter, a British actress, singer and playwright, announced their engagement.

The 38-year-old actor told PopSugar at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Saturday that wedding plans aren't his biggest priority right now.

"One thing at a time," he told the site on the red carpet. "I'm playing Sherlock now, just about to start, so my main focus is going to be that."

Now it looks like the future father will have even more on his plate.

Congratulations to the parents-to-be!
