Benedict Cumberbatch's family is growing.

The Doctor Strange actor and his wife, Sophie Hunter, are expecting their second child, reports E! News. "Everyone is absolutely thrilled," his rep tells the news site. 

Cumberbatch, 40, and Hunter, 38, welcomed their first child in June 2015. Hunter, a theater director, gave birth to their son, Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch, four months after the duo tied the knot on Valentine's Day on the Isle of Wight in England and a week before Father's Day.

The couple stepped out together on the red carpet Thursday evening for the Doctor Strange premiere in Los Angeles, where Cumberbatch dressed up in a velvet blazer and Hunter showed off her growing baby bump in a strapless black gown.

The actor's rep did not immediately respond to The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment.
