Sherlock Holmes is going to be a dad!

Benedict Cumberbatch, who stars as the witty sleuth on the British TV series "Sherlock," is expecting a baby with his fiancee, Sophie Hunter, according to Us Weekly.

"They are both over the moon," a representative for Cumberbatch told the magazine about the pair.

This follows the incredibly romantic engagement announcement that Cumberbatch posted in The Times of London back in November, referring to himself and his future wife, a theater director, as "Mr B.T. Cumberbatch and Miss S.I. Hunter."

"The Imitation Game" actor also told the outlet that he's looking forward to becoming a father. "It is a wonderful thing to get married young and become a father."

No word yet on a due date.

Congrats to the lovely couple!
