While Benedict Cumberbatch and new wife Sophie Hunter may have traveled to Hollywood last week for the 57th Annual Academy Awards, the two managed to squeeze in a honeymoon road trip during their time in SoCal!
The newlyweds, who are expecting their first child together, drove up the California coast to kick off their first days as husband and wife, cruising along the picturesque PCH highway in a silver convertible Jaguar.
The 38-year-old Oscar-nominee, who lost the award for Best Actor to fellow Brit and pal Eddie Redmayne at Sunday's ceremony, and the 36-year-old brunette stunner were seen packing on the PDA as they regularly stopped to enjoy the ocean views, and according to an eyewitness, "they could not keep their hands off of one another."
Cumberbatch and Hunter departed on their mini-vacation on Tuesday and returned to L.A. on Friday, just in time for the Oscars.
"Benedict looked completely in love, he only had eyes for Sophie," the source reveals, noting that the two "kissed, hugged and held hands even when they were pumping gas."
The insider adds that the lovebirds "mainly kept to themselves" and had little interaction with others, but were always "polite and friendly."
The pair was dressed casually for their romantic road trip with Sophie sporting a floral maxi dress, silver ballet flats and, of course, her wedding ring. Meanwhile, the studly Sherlock star rocked a white tee, jeans and a backwards newsboy cap.
Hunter and the Imitation Game star tied the knot on Valentine's Day in a "magical" and private ceremony at St. Peter and St. Paul's Church in the town of Mottistone on the Isle of Wight in England.
About 100 of the couple's closest family and friends, including Cumberbatch's Sherlock and The Hobbit co-star Martin Freeman, were in attendance.
Benedict's rep confirmed that the two are expecting barely three months after the actor announced his engagement with a notice placed in the London Times.
Two days after the twosome's nuptials, the actor stopped on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he was served piña coladas and joked that the appearance was his "honeymoon."
Thankfully, they decided to head to Big Sur for round two. Congrats to the happy couple!
