We can hear hearts breaking everywhere!

Benedict Cumberbatch is now engaged to girlfriend Sophie Hunter. News of the engagement was revealed in the "Births, Marriages and Deaths" section of The Times newspaper.

The notice 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."
Benedict, 38, was first romantically linked with the 36-year-old theater director in June when they were seen watching tennis together.

The pair was last seen at London restaurant Quaglino's, but the two arrived separately and were keen not to be photographed together.

They first met when starring opposite one another in 2009's Burlesque Fairytales.
