Benedict Cumberbatch is off the market! The Sherlock star reportedly took out an announcement in the "forthcoming marriages" section of the U.K.'s The Times newspaper to share that he and Sophie Hunter, an actress and a British theater director, are engaged.

The item simply read:

There's an elegance to the straightforward way that the couple revealed their marriage plans to the public. It seems Cumberbatch, 38, and Hunter, 36, who appeared together in 2009's Burlesque Fairytales, are keeping their engagement low-key, but hopefully they'll share a glimpse of a ring soon. Congratulations to the couple!
