CUMBERWEDDING! CUMBERBABIES! CUMBERHAPPINESS!

Benedict Cumberbatch is engaged, everyone.

The Sherlock actor went old-school gentlemanly with the news, posting a simple notice in the Wednesday edition of The London Times that says:

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.

Proof:

And despite the interwebs being torn between euphoria and despair, we offer our sincerest congratulations to the big dorky man who captured all our hearts with his otter-like charm and inability to say “penguin.”

Anyone else hoping he’ll photobomb his own wedding photos?
