I'm so happy for them

I couldn't get your link to work on my iPad, but found the news at http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-33122731

So Benedict gets to add another three letters to his name - D. A. D.

The statement doesn't say when.

I think it was today. One article I read said "six hours ago" or "eight hours ago", something like that.

Re: It's a boy! Ben is now a father...

I'm happy for them; I hope the child is everything they dreamed of and more. We already know he's bound to be gorgeous, tall and lean, smart and talented, god willin'.  Maybe "in a few weeks" we'll even get to know what they named the kid.

Today.

Re: It's a boy! Ben is now a father...

Sorry about that.

Thanks for letting me know the link didn't work any longer.

All fixed now.

And here's the new, working link (just in case someone doesn't want to go back to the initial post to click on the working link) -
http://celebritybabies.people.com/2015/06/13/benedict-cumberbatch-sophie-hunter-welcome/#more-220520

I saw the D.A. D. addition to his name earlier somewhere on the internet and got a great big smile out of that comment.

I know he will probably be fiercely protective of his new baby boy, keeping most things private between Sophie and himself (and other close friends and family members), and I fully understand and agree with that stance. 

It's enough for me to know that something he has longed for so many years has finally come to fruition. 

He'll make great dad, I'll bet.

I wouldn't have thought that they announce it the same day (since it's not the Royal Baby, okay for us it is http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png
 )

When I did a Google search for news articles I saw one that said "5 days ago" but it could be an error. I wouldn't be surprised if they managed to keep it a secret for a few days... Good on 'em
