Today's Blind Items - The Disappearing Child

It is a thing now. Before, it was just more of an oddity or a quirk. This foreign born dual threat A list actor made a huge deal about the upcoming birth of a child. His resume inflating wife could not stop talking about it and did her best baby bump cradling poses. Then, everything went silent. No more talk. No more anything. Then, boom, the baby was here. Well, it was here according to the PR people for the couple and editable websites were updated with the new information and there was even a name. Our actor told people he was spending hours each day face timing an infant. Yeah, no one believed him. This week though, there was some interesting news. Our actor, filming overseas has settled into suburban life for the duration of the filming. It is a small town and the neighbors are excited. They have a movie star living with them and reporters interviewed them all. Every neighbor who was asked, mentioned seeing the children and nanny. The only thing is, the number of children is one less than the reported number. The number the PR people said. Where is this child that no one has ever seen. Then, today, a few short days after the neighbors were interviewed, the editable websites have all removed the existence of this child.

Superfly said...

weird, why would somebody do this?

HushHush said...

Cumberbatch and his playwright wife. My guess is that they were expecting a baby via surrogate, and the mother kept it.

lol said...

that's not a thing @hushhush lol. did y'all consider maybe she had a miscarriage and doesn't want to share it with the world?

Natalie said...

Tom Cruise haha

Freed Weave said...

Are we back to this story from 2 months ago Enty? we had BIs everyday almost about the third child and where it was now we're back at it.

bdm said...

Maybe dingoes ate the baby.

MZ said...

Did they actually confirm they were having a third. Reports assumed because she had on a flowy gown. Maybe she was never pregnant, or maybe she lost the baby. Not everything has to be a conspiracy theory. .

Zebra Seasoning said...

MZ- he confirmed it during press for The Grinch.

Not everything is a conspiracy, but for nearly a year now, at least one website said there were 3 children and the third son was named Finn. Where'd that info come from, and why is it gone now?

Jon said...

They maybe gave it to Rebbie Jackson.

Jon said...

This is the most likely scenario.

MZ said...

@Zebra maybe he did confirm and they lost it. Not all websites are on the up and up. It could have been made up by a fan.

AIP said...

@Zebra, seemingly it was added to his IMDb (with a birth date of the 11th January 2019), and all other mentions (Twitter etc), reference that.

Little Miss Sunshine said...

It was probably Rosemary's baby.

Felicia said...

That one is weird.

This tumblr site quotes the kid info, then available throughout the Net; Finn born 2019.

Could have died; UK surrogates have several months to decide if they want to keep the kid, too (Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor, aka the kid a surrogate wisely decided not to leave in Fat Markle’s claws.) Or maybe severely disabled kid adopted out? I suspect a sad story, not necessarily a sinister one.

Felicia said...

Oops forgot to list Tumblr site

BI is either complete bullshit (fed to this site by a Hater with an agenda) or very, very sloppy research by this site. 1) Cumberbatch's wife has NEVER talked publicly about her third child (and Cumberbatch himself mentioned that specific pregnancy once). 2) It has been CONFIRMED by reliable sources (people who worked with him) that the Cumberbatches indeed do have 3 (THREE) children. 3) That NZ newspaper was using outdated info in the story. No quotes said there were only 2 children - any people quoted just said he was there with his family and nanny, etc. 4) The mention on the IMDB site has NOT disappeared. It was NEVER in his personal info section - it was, and STILL IS, in the trivia section. Just checked moments ago... with the third child's name and birthdate listed. So CDAN fails again!

Snifter said...

Refresh your browser. It isn't there.

Felicia said...

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-7591287/amp/Benedict-Cumberbatch-puts-animated-display-FaceTimes-family.html

DailyMail article October 2019 only lists two kids, no mention of a third having been born as is said to have happened in 2019, also no mention of one on the way.

Baked_Alaska said...

Did Enty even read the NZ article? I know it was all PR BS but still. The 'reporter'(SH's publicist) allegedly talked to someone who looked like the hired help possibly a nanny or housekeeper. The housekeeper said that she couldn't give them ANY information, period. The only actual celebrity allegedly staying at that house was Cumberbatch himself. Durnst was staying elsewhere and they only 'interviewed' ONE (alleged) neighbor, who 'confirmed' the PR yarn. Enty is correct in that Sophie Hunter rolled it back to two pretend kids after the third fakenancy was pretend aborted by Mickey Mouse. It's one hell of a shitty long con if ever I saw one. Meghan Markle isn't the only Soho House fraudster, Sophie Hunter belongs to the same group of hoes in league with Weinstein. Except Meghan Markle used a surrogate, Hunter could't because according to insiders like Bowles she suffers from an intersex condition.

Alice H. said...

There are official records for all three children.

Monkeyweather said...

What'd they do? Sacrifice it to Molech?

Zebra Seasoning said...

Alice H- share with the class. Prove Enty wrong.

Angela said...

For the umpteenth time, these blinds are sourced from some deranged and obsessive Cumberbatch fan who doesn't accept the idea that her Internet darling got married to somebody else, and who tries desperately to prove that the marriage is a sham, that the kids don't really exist, etc.
Every time Cumberbatch makes a public appearance, she will scrub the photos and videos for elements that would prove her theory and posts them.
She used at some point the "Snifter" alias here, and every time somebody would guess another name than Cumberbatch or had doubts about the authenticity of the blind, she would add many more details, which basically revealed she was the source for the story.

And here, after a lengthy hiatus since November and the previous Cumberbatch blind item, Snifter is back for this story. What a coincidence!

Astra Worthington said...

NO1CURR, it’s a gossip site, bro.

Wow I can’t believe I was first! Lol 😆

Snifter said...

Maybe it's because I missed you, Angela. :-*

Iamwinkingatyou;-) said...

Zebra... YOU prove "Enty" right.

Show everyone the direct QUOTE from Sophie Cumberbatch where she "could not stop talking about it" (her third pregnancy).

YOU show where Cumberbatch "made a huge deal" of the third pregnancy. IIRC he mentioned it ONCE briefly on a radio show saying that he had a third child on the way and quickly added that he didn't want to say anything more about his family. Frankly, I don't that making a big deal about it at all. As far as I can see, Cumberbatch rarely mentions his family nowadays and who can blame him with nutcases like Aeltri foaming at the mouth on a regular basis because she feels scorned by him (in her obsessed mind) when he married Sophie.

There's nothing hinky about the Cumberbatches' marriage or family. But I will tell you what IS hinky - someone callling a man a LIAR for 5 YEARS when he says he is getting married, someone wishing ill will to happen to a couple's children and someone spreading UNSUBSTANTIATED accusations (not ONE whiff of impropriety in legitimate media) as far and wide on the internet just because her "fav" got married and had family without HER permission!

Mischief Girl said...

Listen, speaking as someone who's lost a baby at 35 weeks, the baby could have been stillborn and they don't want to shout it from the rafters.

I'm all for a good conspiracy, but I wish we could let this "mystery" go. Surrogate kept the baby, she had a miscarriage, the baby was stillborn...in any scenario hopes were dashed and hearts were hurt.

Just leave it alone.

FourthTurning said...

My gosh Mischief, I'm so sorry for your loss - absolutely heartbreaking. I hope you are healing.

LuluKay said...

Cumberbatch fans are a special kinda stupid, right? From what I can see here, you got the raving loonies who think there are no kids, then you got the other set of raving loonies who pile on obsessively to say yeah there are kids, we have actual proof, we have actual paperwork but then y’all are like no no no privacy! I fervently hope the man retires and disappears and y’all MOVE TF ON!

notthisagain said...

Of course it’s Eggs Benedict Cucumber

I got a chuckle out of the blind where he tried to hook up w/that woman, she: “aren’t you married?” eggs Benedict: ‘people really believe that???’

ForSure said...

Cumberbatch has three children, they are listed towards the bottom of his bio on IMDB. For whatever reason, IMDB refuses to match that to the "spouse" box on his profile.

There are public records for all three births. The tin hatters on tumblr have seen them, but they have decided that all three are fraudulent because Sophie Hunter Russian mafia something something gazpacho! (h/t to Jim Wright for that phrase). No surrogate, no death, no anything, just a man who doesn't want to talk about his family.

The New Zealand story was haphazard reporting by a small town weekly. Exactly two people were interviewed, the nanny who wouldn't comment, and one neighbor who said they had seen "children" without mentioning a number.

FYI, the user "Baked_Alaska" is also aeltri . tumblr. com if you want to read more of her rantings. I think this is her fifth username here at CDAN. It's a shame there is no one in her life that cares about her enough to stage an intervention. She clearly needs help.

I think "ZebraSeasoning" was revealed to be fakerbatch . tumblr. com if you want to read her real thoughts about her celebrity crush, not the sanitized version she posts here. She also posts at the Daily Mail and Buzzfeed using that screenname. I appreciate her consistency.

The Cumberbatches have been married for five years, they have three children, they are in NZ as a family, they are not breaking up, no matter how many sad women on tumblr beg them to every day.

Baked_Alaska said...

I can't believe how stupid some of these people are to believe all this PR tripe. It was a failed stunt, the third one was cancelled and we know how the first two were 'registered'. It was reported by a corporate source that Hunter had been planning on a third fakenancy since early 2018 to extend her stay. People need to know that she pulled the first one in order to upgrade her fauxmance dealio from red carpet girlfriend to fake PR wife. She postponed it in early 2018 because Henry Cavill came back on the market. I am not joking, she actually thought that she could bribe him with underage girls into taking her on as PR GF. That's how delusional she is but of course he said NO. So she went through with her brilyunt Plan B only to be told NO by a certain conglomerate. It's a sham and that much is an open secret in the industry, the kids are said to be either her boyfriend's or 'adopted' by less than legal means. Weinstein initiated this mess and was very involved in covering it all up because his fat ass was on the line. But now that he's out of the way? Expect things to start falling apart and fast.

Baked_Alaska said...

@Iamwinkingatyou;-) Actually she DID leak news of fakenancy #3 via a UKRAINIAN rag. It seems like a rather odd choice but there is a surprising reason behind this that Cumberstans like you are simply too stupid to understand. Organized crime has always been involved in showbiz, if you start digging things get very dark and very dirty fast. Please do everyone a favor and refrain from opining on things that you know absolutely nothing about

ForSure said...

Hello Aeltri aka Baked Alaska aka Athenys, thanks for giving yourself away again, with neon lights and alarms blaring. Does your bedroom look like Anderson's living room in that scene from The Empty Hearse with red yarn criss crossing the walls, and photos and maps and everything else? I bet it does. You are obsessed with this fiction that you've created in your head. It's really sad, you seem to have no other purpose in life.

To everyone else, I offer my apologies, my previous post was incorrect. I believe that "ZebraSeasoning" is actually khanspets. tumblr. com, and not the other blog that I mentioned above. Hard to keep the bit players straight when most of the worst garbage comes from three main blogs. Read them all if you are bored, always worth a laugh.

Zebra Seasoning said...

I'm really not any of those people. I'm sure they'll be relieved to see that.

Baked_Alaska said...

@ForSure Yeah, I don't need a neon sign to see that you're an idiot for sure. Keep telling yourself that we send these Blind Items in to Enty if it makes you feel any better. You have NO idea XD!

Iamwinkingatyou;-) said...

Do you actually hear yourself Aeltri/Half Baked Alaska/etc. etc.???

Ukranian rag "reveals", organized crime, three, THREE fake children registered, WTF??? This ALL powerful , totally EEEEEEVIL woman masterminding all these complex plans... but she hasn't got "clever" little you fooled, has she! You and a half dozen internet NOBODIES have unraveled all her schemes and so on and so on!! LOL! Sure Jan!

ForSure said...

ZebraSeasoning, my mistake. What is your tumblr blog?

Aeltri, I don't know or care where this site gets their blind items. I stopped caring the first time the original owner and writer sold it years ago. The real idiot here is the one who is so obsessed with an actor that she cannot get over the fact that he got married five years ago. That would be you. Keep spreading lies and more lies if it makes you feel better, but there will never be a day when Cumberbatch calls you to express his gratitude for saving him. Never. You might get a restraining order though.

I have a question for you. Are you like your idol Trump, do you project your faults on to other people? Do you accuse people of being intersex because you are intersex and that's the source of your low self esteem and self hatred? I've wanted to ask you that for a long time, but I won't give your gutter blog any clicks. It's okay to be nonbinary or androgynous or whatever you like, you don't have to take it out on every woman in the world that is more successful than you with your lies and conspiracy theories, pulled out of your ass.

Sophia S said...

Who is Benedict Cumberbatch? *ducks

Droopy Orchid said...

+1 so sorry you went through this unimaginable heartbreak @MischiefGirl
Agreed that some things should be off limits, particularly when connected to severe disablement or death in an infant.

LuluKay said...

ForSure, why hasn’t Cumberbatch already gotten a restraining order? Ftr, I think the whole lot of you are just shrill harpies, but I’ve been sporadically following and you all seem so certain that there’s a restraining order in the future. It’s been 5 years, don’t you think if he was really concerned about his welfare or that of his family, that restraining order would have been in place by now?

LuluKay said...

An actor that the internet is apparently thirsty as hell for. Take my advice - stay outta that fandom. Way too many crazies for anyone’s mental health. He was/is Dr Strange.

AIP said...

@AliceH... somebody actually went to the GRO to view the registration index number? I do a bit of work in the genealogy field, and even I find that utterly sinister and bizarre. And no, one can’t “look it up”, as the FreeBMD only has pre-1993 indices and even Ancestry only goes to 2005.

@LuluKay, I’ve been a fan for years - since Creation, even though he was remarkable in Atonement... we’re not all completely unhinged! Honest!!😉

samechick said...

Who knew people felt this deeply about Benedict Cumberbatch?

Turitella said...

Koi @sophie s, I feel the same way. This. Is even weirder than the harkle debarkle.

Turitella said...

Lol not koi, stupid autocorrect.

NicQuerica said...

Maybe there was something wrong and the child passed away. Just leave it. It's none of our business.

ForSure said...

LuluKay, the reason celebrities in general don't go after these bloggers is because it gives them the attention they crave. Aeltri in particular is very desperate for any sign of acknowledgement from Cumberbatch. She believes that Hunter reads her blog and sends her anonymous messages. She lives somewhere in Northern California so she is probably no real threat to the family.

AIP, if you want to go through the archive of Hunter Hype Report on tumblr, someone requested and obtained a copy of the first child's birth certificate and shared it. When given this information Aeltri and her friends then concocted a story that Hunter scammed the British government and claimed to have an inside source who emailed them the info and was mysteriously transferred to Dublin. Zero proof of any of that was offered. On a related note, I can also tell you that a young woman from San Diego skipped a day of high school and drove all the way to Bakersfield to get a copy of the birth certificate for the One Direction guy's baby, and then was so stunned when she saw it she said she was going to the FBI. This bizarre behavior is not limited to the Cumberbatch tin hat types.

Congratulations on your increased clicks, CDAN conglomerate.

Mrs Libnish said...

They are both attention whores. As hard core as it might sound to say this, I doubt either of them would pass up a chance to milk this for attention/sympathy.

I liked him in that HBO short series about the drunk writer who's dad molested him. Patrick something...

Jules said...

I really don't want to sound stupid but why does everyone assume Meghan used a surrogate?

Natsu said...

Jamie Dornan - his wife gave birth to a new baby last year.. she did the Prego posing for paps and there is only one said photo of the baby and it's the back of her head. He is currently filming in America.

Seven Daughters said...

Wow. This comment section is a ride. Especially when in response to a sarcastic and hyperbolic blind on a gossip site. Well played, Enty, well played.

Iamwinkingatyou;-) said...

Everyone doesn't. Only tinhatters do. Most people are NOT tinhatters. BTW, it isn't a stupid question because tinhatters really try VERY hard to give the appearance that "everyone" thinks like they do. It's ALL "smoke and mirrors" with them - NEVER a sliver of truth!

Jules said...


Iamwinkingatyou;-) Thanks for the explanation!
