Just two days after marrying partner Sophie Hunter on the Isle of Wight, the Sherlock star flew to LA to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live in the States last night.
"I felt bad about you not coming [to the wedding] so I thought I would bring you in on the honeymoon!" joked Benedict.
Jimmy transformed his studio into a more honeymoon-esque destination, complete with a beach backdrop and pina coladas. Though, as both benedict and Jimmy pointed out, they were alcohol-free and pretty rubbish…
There was also a basket of goodies waiting for Benedict. Remnants of his wedding registry apparently! Whisk sets, a bread pan, a pepper grinder, an oven mitt and an avocado slicer, according to Jimmy, who assured Benedict they would send it to his home so he didn't need to carry it home himself.
As Jimmy pointed out, it's been an amazing few months for the British actor. Now only is he an Oscar-nominated, married man, but he's got his first child on the way!
Will the baby be taking Benedict's surname? "Well, poor child, I think it will have to!" joked Benedict. "That's kind of the tradition!"
Benedict and new wife Sophia are in Los Angeles ahead of the Oscars ceremony, where Benedict is nominated in the 'Best Actor' category for his role as Alan Turing in The Imitation Game.
The star said he found out about his Oscar nomination after calling his best friend in London and realising it was just three minutes until the nominations were announced. He stayed on the phone with his pal to find out whether he was nominated.
