Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Turner have welcomed their baby boy to world. The couple has not released the name of the child just yet — probably waiting until he can open his eyes before giving out that information. The couple has also released a statement for the media to respect their privacy.

Cumberbatch’s rep, Karon Maskill, said

“Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are delighted to announce the arrival of their beautiful son. We would kindly ask everyone to respect the family’s privacy during these next few precious weeks.”

The couple has always been very private and that is to be expected with their newborn child.

The couple was barely photographed together before their engagement. Even after the couple still remained very private. Cumberbatch and Turner announced the pregnancy in January, and then they were married on Valentine’s Day. Of course a very private ceremony away from the eyes of the media. Only close friends and family attended the wedding that was on the Isle of Wight.

According to the BBC, the couple’s child was born after Cumberbatch

“was named a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for services to the performing arts and charity.”

Congratulations to happy couple on the birth of their new son!
