The name of the British couple's son was not revealed.
Cumberbatch's rep had announced her pregnancy in January, two months after the pair got engaged. The two got married in a private wedding ceremony on Feb. 14, Valentine's Day, on the Isle of Wright in England in front of family and friends, including Cumberbatch's "Sherlock" and "The Hobbit" co-star Martin Freeman.
A week later, Hunter showcased her baby bump in red Lanvin gown at the 2015 Oscars, where Cumberbatch was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in "The Imitation Game."
