The news broke on Saturday evening (13 June) that the star of The Imitation Game and TV's Sherlock had became a dad - just a day after it was revealed that he is to be handed a CBE.
"Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are delighted to announce the arrival of their beautiful son," a spokesperson for the pair told media.
"We would kindly ask everyone to respect the family's privacy during these next few precious weeks."
