2014 was a big year for British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, as he explained in December at the Moet British Independent Film Awards: SOUNDBITE, actor Benedict Cumberbatch, saying (English): "I've obviously had the most important news in my life as far as my life goes but that's obviously private so I don't want to talk about that too much. The engagement to the woman I love is the most important thing in 2014 for me." But he may have already trumped that in 2015 as Benedict and his fiancee Sophie Hunter have announced they are expecting their first child. The news has lit up social media with the unborn baby already being dubbed either the 'Cumberbun' or the 'Cumberbaby' by the 'Sherlock' actor's fervent fans. The baby might not be all the actor will be taking home soon, as he looks likely to bag a few prizes for his role as Alan Turing in 'The Imitation Game' after being a mainstay nominee during award season.
