Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter have gotten married in a Valentine's Day wedding on the Isle of Wight that was presumably as charmingly traditional as the couple's engagement announcement. A rep confirms the nuptials to the AP, calling it a "magical day." Cumberbatch's Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman served as best man, adds Vanity Fair, and the couple is expected to head next to Los Angeles, where Cumberbatch is up for an Oscar a week from today. The couple is reportedly expecting what's being dubbed a "Cumberbaby." (More Benedict Cumberbatch stories.)
