We’re so sorry: Benedict Cumberbatch is engaged

Grab a life jacket because we think a river of tears is about to wash over the streets of Manila-and quite possibly, the entire planet.
The Telegraph reported on Wednesday that "Benedict Cumberbatch, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London" are tying the knot. The announcement was spotted in the Forthcoming Marriages section of The Times. Earlier reports stated that Cumberbatch flew to Edinburgh to ask for Hunter’s hand in marriage.
We know you’re still in denial, but a spokesman for Cumberbatch said, " I am delighted to confirm this morning's announcement that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are engaged."
Are you delighted, too, Spotters?
