Benedict Cumberbatch and Wife Sophie Welcome Second Son
Congrats are in order for Sophie Hunter, who recently gave birth to her and Benedict Cumberbatch’s second child

The Sherlock star and his wife Sophie welcomed their second child together, Hal Auden Cumberbatch, on March 3, PEOPLE confirms.

PEOPLE can also confirm that Sophie has formally changed her name from Sophie Hunter to Sophie Cumberbatch.

He has yet to formally announce the news – but Benedict Cumberbatch has become a father for the second time.

The actor’s wife, Sophie Hunter, 39, gave birth to their second son at the £1,200-a-night Portland Hospital in London on March 3. And in true thespian style, Cumberbatch named his boy after a Shakespearean hero. Hal was the nickname Henry V had before he became the hero of Agincourt. But in choosing the name, Cumberbatch could also be acknowledging his affection for fellow screen star Tom Hiddleston.

The pair starred together in 2012 in The Hollow Crown, an amalgamation of Shakespeare’s history plays in which Cumberbatch played Richard III and Hiddleston took the role of Hal.

The baby’s full name is Hal Auden Cumberbatch, and is a brother to Christopher, who was born in June 2015.
