The Sherlock baby’s name has been revealed in the coolest way possible
The name of John and Mary Watson’s baby in Sherlock has been announced.
Sherlock fans have already been treated to pictures of John (Martin Freeman) and Mary’s (Amanda Abbington) newborn child. However, details about the baby’s name have been kept a secret until now.
The Watsons’ daughter’s birth was unveiled early this morning and you’ll never guess how…
The announcement was printed in The Daily Telegraph under the ‘Births’ section! It reads: “Congratulations! – To John and Mary Watson on the birth of their beautiful baby daughter, Rosamund Mary Watson.”
Now that’s a seriously cool bit of marketing.
A snap of the newspaper was posted on Twitter today:

The second half of the announcement comments: “From your friends, Mrs Hudson, Molly and Sherlock, although he hasn’t helped us with this at all as he’s always on his phone.”
“Always on his phone”…? Hmm. What could this mean?
The BBC dropped an intense new trailer last weekend and now fans are more excited than ever for the new series to commence.
Sherlock is set to premiere on New Year’s Day at 8.30pm with ‘The Six Thatchers’. The following episodes will air weekly, with the second titled ‘The Dying Detective’.
