He may be expecting his second child with his wife Sophie Hunter, but Benedict Cumberbatch has admitted that he still has a lot to learn when it comes to fatherhood.


The 40-year-old was speaking to Alison Hammond on This Morning when he was asked if being a dad was his proudest achievement.



However, his response to the question was a little unexpected when he said: 'It's probably Sophie's. I'm expecting a second child now... I'm still proving myself as a father.'


Benedict, who stars as the titular hero in Doctor Strange, welcomed son Christopher last June, just a few months after he married Sophie, 38, on Valentine’s Day, and previously said that fatherhood was “massively life-changing.”



“It’s massive, and on a very unexpected level. Suddenly, I understood my parents much more profoundly than I ever had before…You understand much more about being a son, becoming a father,” he told Vanity Fair.
