Sophie Hunter is positively glowing.
While Cumberbatch, 40, kept it traditional in a dark suit and tie, Hunter, 38, opted to conceal her baby bump under a bronze-colored, button-down dress featuring a high collar and unique geometric pattern. She completed the look with natural makeup and a pretty pink lip.
“It’s really incredible,” Cumberbatch tells PEOPLE of having Hunter, who debuted her baby bump on Oct. 20 at the Los Angeles premiere of Doctor Strange, at his side to support him.

For the film, the English actor had to put on an American accent. But for him, that wasn’t the most out-of-the-box part of the experience.
“It’s weirder watching yourself in front of [a] film this size, at the L.A. premiere, the world premiere of it,” Cumberbatch says. “Yet somehow, because of the thousands of other people involved, you can sit back and enjoy the other people’s work as well.”
He adds humbly, “It’s not all about you. I kind of got over myself.”
