Benedict Cumberbatch is ENGAGED!

Oh. Em. Gee.

What is this sorcery? Benedict Cumberbatch has announced that he is engaged to be married!

Yes, that’s right, married. Benedict. Sherlock. Smaug.

The marriage announcement to Sophie Hunter appeared in a newspaper announcement today and reads: “Mr. BT 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."

Sophie and Benedict have never gone public with their relationship, but have been spotted together numerous times. 

Look here's the ACTUAL proof Sherlock is soon to be a married man:

Although we may be completely devastated – congratulations to the happy couple!
