Benedict Cumberbatch is engaged to his girlfriend Sophie Hunter and he has announced it in a very traditional way. They announced it in the births, marriages and deaths section in The Times newspaper. Somebody on The Times news desk might be angry after letting it slip through without noticing it. There are reports that Benedict flew to Edinburgh to ask Sophie’s mother Anna’s permission for her daughters hand in marriage.
Most people didn’t know that Benedict Cumberbatch even had a girlfriend as they have been very private and kept there relationship out of the public eye. They both work in the same industry and starred together in Burlesque Fairytales in 2009. In the last couple of years Benedict has moving mostly into films and TV shows while Sophie has mainly focused on her work on the stage and has won many awards for her writing and directing.
The couple have yet to show a picture of the ring if one does exist yet. We guess it is something vintage and not to over the top maybe a solitaire. The couple are never seen out in the public together as they are very private so we think the wedding might go under the radar the same way the engagement did.
