The couple seemed very loved up and Hunter was wearing a beautiful black ball gown, concealing any signs of pregnancy.

However, eagle eyed fans noticed and sent Twitter into a frenzy, questioning the possibility of another child..

A spokesman has now confirmed the news, stating: “Everyone is absolutely thrilled.”

The couple already have one son, Christopher Carlton, born in June last year. They were also married on Valentine’s Day in 2015. So it’s been a very big and busy year for Cumberbatch!

He told Graham Norton on his show recently: “I’ve become a father and a husband, and in the right order — just.”

“I might go for a batch of boys.”

He has recently stepped into the world of Marvel and become Dr. Strange which has fans very excited after watching the unbelievable trailer.
