Benedict Cumberbatch Finally Reveals Baby Name

And yes, it's as charming as you'd expect

It's been three months since Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter welcomed a bouncing baby boy into the world. But while they've been coping with the sleepless nights (and Hamlet previews) we've been on tenterhooks about the name.


Now, in an interview with People magazine, the Sherlock actor revealed that his little treasure is called... Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch – Carlton being the name shared by both Cumberbatch and his father. 

The Oscar-nominated actor and his wife announced that they were expecting their first child in January and got married on Valentine's Day 2015.
