"Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are delighted to announce the arrival of their beautiful son," the actor's rep told ET. "We would kindly ask everyone to respect the family's privacy during these next few precious weeks."

This is the first child for the couple. The Imitation Game star met Hunter, 37, in 2009. The two were engaged last November and wed on Valentine's Day.
