3. But 2015 also became the year Benedict became a father. These were the emotions we all felt when he announced the happy news.

4. And then our hearts almost exploded when he welcomed a baby boy into the world in June.

His rep told BuzzFeed at the time: "Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are delighted to announce the arrival of their beautiful son."

5. But he also ruled when he had this perfect reaction to a mean tweet about himself.
