Oooh! We're on serious Cumber-baby watch!

We were among the first to spot that Benedict Cumberbatch‘s fiancé was rocking a secret baby bump.

Days before they made their pregnancy news official we got excited when Sophie Hunter showed off a visible bump at the Palm Springs Film Festival on the red carpet just over a week ago.

But is the Cumber-baby set to make an appearance even sooner than we think?

Well, if these shock screengrabs of Sophie INSIDE the Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California yesterday, are anything to go by then YES YES YES!

Wearing a striking navy gown with red and silver floral detailing and a floor-length sweeping skirt Sophie, 36, did a very good job of disguising her bump on the red carpet – but she looked very blooming once she got inside and sat down.

During the BBC’s TV coverage of the event, we spotted Sophie sitting in the audience with a very prominent bump on display.

Perhaps it was the way her dressed puffed up when she sat down, or perhaps Sophie is a lot further along in her pregnancy than we first thought. Either way, we’re VERY EXCITED.

Benedict, 38, had been tipped for awards glory for his role as Alan Turing in The Imitation Game but lost out to his old friend Eddie Redmayne in the Best Actor category for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

However Benedict still stole the show when he got up on stage to present an award with Jennifer
and later photobombed Meryl Streep!

Benedict, who announced his engagement news in early November, last week confirmed through his spokesperson that he was expecting a baby. They said: ‘I am delighted to confirm that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are expecting their first child. They are both over the moon.’

Benedict has never made any secret of how broody he is. Two years ago, before he started dating Sophie, he said: ‘I’ve been broody since I was 12, but I can’t just get anyone pregnant, it has got to be the right person.’

Well he certainly appears to have met the right person now. The star recently gushed about how happy he is saying: ‘It’s an amazing thing to find somebody you love. It’s amazing to find somebody you love at all, let alone somebody who loves you back in the same way and to the same degree.

‘And if that is amazing, well, considering how busy both Sophie and I are, it’s a minor miracle that we met each other at all in the way we did.’
