Benedict Cumberbatch and his new fiancée, theater director Sophie Hunter, made their couples grand entrance at the premiere of The Imitation Game in New York City Monday night, marking this the first time they’ve stepped out onto the red carpet together since, well, ever.

The notoriously private Sherlock star shocked his Cumberbitches fans early November when he announced his engagement to his longtime gal pal by putting out a classified ad in a newspaper

Cumberbatch, 38, and Hunter, 36, first met on the set of Burlesque Fairytales in 2009 but did not start dating until earlier this year.

“It’s what I would have done if I wasn’t famous. It’s a normal thing to do in my country,” the British actor recently told USA Today about the old school gesture. “It was a way of telling our friends who we hadn’t been able to tell before [they saw] some grainy shot of a ring on her finger.”
