2015 is the year that Benedict Cumberbatch will become the Cumber-DILF, as Sophie Hunter, the Sherlock actor's fiancée, is reportedly expecting the couple's first child. A source revealed to Page Six, "Sophie is a few months along, and both she and Benedict are very excited about it. They are also quietly planning to marry in early spring." That's not the most ironclad of birth announcements, so perhaps some Cumberbitches out there still have a chance. (Probably not, though.)
