Posted on

There’s another Cumberbatch baby on the way!

Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter are expecting their second child, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“Everyone is absolutely thrilled,” his rep tells PEOPLE.

The actor walked the red carpet on Thursday night in L.A. for the premiere of Doctor Strange and his wife debuted her baby bump in a black gown.

The new addition will join the couple’s son, Christopher “Kit” Carlton, whom they welcomed in June 2015.

“I’ve become a father and a husband, and in the right order,” the Sherlock star joked to host Graham Norton on his BBC show shortly after his son’s birth. “I might go for a (Cumber) batch of boys!”

Cumberbatch, 40, recently opened up to Vanity Fair about his life with Hunter and their 16-month-old son.

“Having a baby — it’s massive,” he said in the November issue. “And on a very unexpected level. Suddenly I understood my parents much more profoundly than I ever had before.”

E! News was the first to report the pregnancy.
