Benedict Cumberbatch on Fatherhood: ‘I Might Go for a (Cumber) Batch of Boys’

Benedict Cumberbatch is loving being a dad to 5-month-old son Christopher Carlton.

“I’ve become a father and a husband, and in the right order — just,” the Sherlock star joked to host Graham Norton on his BBC show. “I might go for a (Cumber) batch of boys!”

Cumberbatch, 39, and wife Sophie Hunter welcomed their son in June, following the couple’s February wedding in their native England.

“It’s everything. I have a new life form that needs his father’s help in the world and his mother needs a little help once in a while,” the actor continued.“It’s what being a parent is about so it’s not an excuse to get away from what I am doing — it’s what I ought to be doing. After three and half hours of Hamlet, I think that’s okay.”

While his Shakespeare play closed in October, Cumberbatch will surely be balancing fatherhood and his acting career as the fourth season of Sherlock begins production in the spring.
