A spokesperson for Cumberbatch and Hunter confirmed Saturday that they are now parents to a baby boy. “Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are delighted to announce the arrival of their beautiful son,” reads the spokesperson’s statement.”We would kindly ask everyone to respect the family’s privacy during these next few precious weeks.”

The couple has yet to release the name of their firstborn child.

Cumberbatch and Hunter revealed back in January that they were expecting. “I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child,” a spokesperson had said on the couple’s behalf at the time. “They are both over the moon.”

Cumberbatch and Hunter announced their engagement in November with a notice published in the Times of London. They were wed on Valentine’s Day at the 12th-century St. Peter and St. Paul Church on the British Isle of Wight
