Looks like an acting nomination isn't the only thing Benedict Cumberbatch is celebrating at the Emmy Awards 2018!

While walking the red carpet on Monday, the Patrick Melrose star and his wife, Sophie Hunter, revealed that they are expecting their third child together, E! News reports.

Hunter wore a sunshine-yellow turtleneck dress that showed off her growing stomach, and Cumberbatch looked suave as ever in a classic black tuxedo. Both husband and wife wore sunglasses on the carpet, and looked every bit the part of cool mom and dad.

The couple already has two children together, one-year-old Hal Auden Cumberbatch and three-year-old Christopher "Kit" Carlton Cumberbatch. They were married on Valentine's Day 2015, while Hunter was pregnant with Kit. When asked at the time how he felt about breaking the hearts of Sherlock fans everywhere with his marriage, he adorably responded, "Fine, in the sense that I've made one person's heart—the most important person in my life—very happy." Swoon...

Cumberbatch is nominated at the 2018 Emmys for the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his role in Showtime's Patrick Melrose. Cumberbatch's next role, it seems, will be "dad of three," and we're willing to bet he deserves just as many awards for that as he does for his acting.
