Benedict Cumberbatch is set to wed his pregnant fiancee, Sophie Hunter on Saturday, February 14, 2015, Us Weekly reports.

According to an insider, the 38-year-old actor and Hunter will tie the knot on Valentine's Day on the Isle of Wight in England.

The couple met in 2009 on the set of the thriller, Burlesque Fairytales. Cumberbatch announced his engagement to his bride-to-be the old-fashioned way in November 2014, with a posting in The Times of London. (He told Us Weekly exclusively that month, that the pair were planning a "private" wedding.)

"Mr B.T. Cumberbatch and Miss S.I. Hunter," the clipping read. "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."

Two months later, the magazine confirmed that the couple are expecting their first child together.

Hunter first sparked pregnancy rumours when she appeared to sport a baby bump on the red carpet while attending the 2015 Palm Springs Film Festival Gala.

The Sherlock Holmes star has had an eventful awards season thus far. After adding the title husband to his name, the actor and his longtime love will be attending the 87th Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 22, 2015.

Cumberbatch is nominated for Best Actor for his work in The Imitation Game. The drama is also up for Best Picture.
