The rumors are true! Benedict Cumberbatch married Sophie Hunter with their gestating baby in attendance on the inside today -- Valentine's Day. Their romance is impeccably sweet and the wedding details will melt your heart faster than that chocolate melting in your hands as you read this.


On the Isle of Wight in the town of Mottistone about four miles off the southern coast of England, the handsome 38-year-old Benedict said I do to the beautiful Sophie, 36. The ceremony took place in the gorgeous St. Peter and St. Paul's Church. After the bride entered the stone church, she didn't emerge until about 40 minutes later -- married to Benedict. Hearts broke all across the globe. The couple then got into a vintage white Jaguar and headed to the reception.

The celebrating continued at Mottistone Manor, a breathtaking venue surrounded by wildflowers. Sophie's great-great-grandfather John Seely was the first Baron Mottistone and purchased the manor way back in the 1860s. Fancy! It was reported that there were about 100 guests in attendance including actor Martin Freeman, his co-star in The Hobbit and Sherlock, and Andrew Scott, also in Sherlock. Dame Judi Dench who has known Cumberbatch since he was a wee little one couldn't make it but wished him well. She also reported that it was a rainy day but knew they would have a lovely day despite the rain. Rain is supposed to be good luck -- not that these two lovebirds need any.

We knew Cumberbatch was tying the knot, but no one knew how soon. It comes as a bit of a surprise since it's just a week before the Oscars. Cumberbatch is nominated for Best Actor from his role in The Imitation Game and if he wins, we get a lovely speech from the newlywed and father-to-be. Of his bride, Cumberbatch has said, "She's just really cool," which honestly is exactly what we all hope our partners think of us. 

All the best to these two ... or shall I say three!
