Page Six is reporting that Benedict Cumberbatch and his fiancée Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child together.

The Cumber-baby news could also mean a Cumber-wedding happening sooner than expected.

“Sophie is a few months along, and both she and Benedict are very excited about it,” according to a Page Six source. “They are also quietly planning to marry in early spring.”

The Imitation Game star and his theater director bride-to-be just made a red carpet appearance at the Palm Springs International Film Festival over the weekend. Let’s take a closer look at that possible Cumber-bump:

Of course, there was no mention of the maybe baby bump — or even his upcoming nuptials — at the film festival. Speaking to PopSugar, the 38-year-old Cumberbatch said he’s focusing on work these days.

“One thing at a time. I’m playing Sherlock now — just about to start — so my main focus is going to be on that,” he said.

Cumberbatch and Hunter, 36, first announced their engagement in a newspaper in November 2014.

The Imitation Game is in theaters now. Sherlock series four is set to air in 2016, along with a Christmas special.

Update at 1:10 p.m. EST: A spokesperson for Cumberbatch has confirmed the baby news: “I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon.”
