Benedict Cumberbatch married his pregnant fiancée Sophie Hunter today in a super-secret wedding, which was attended only by close friends and family.

The 38-year-old Sherlock actor and theatre director Hunter, 36, reportedly married at a stunning period property in the South of England on the day of love.

Last month Cumberbatch and Hunter revealed they are expecting their first child.

The wedding comes only three months after their engagement was announced in Forthcoming Marriages section of The Times newspaper on November 5, a thing the Oscar-nominated actor said he would have done if he was not famous.

The announcement read: "Mr B.T. Cumberbatch and Miss S.I. Hunter: The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London."

The Daily Mail reported that instead of sending out paper invitations, everything has been done by email as time is of essence and the couple wants to be married well before the baby arrives.
