Zawe Ashton and Tom Hiddleston Are Expecting Their First Baby
Congratulations are in order as Zawe Ashton and Tom Hiddleston have announced they are expecting their first baby together. The “Fresh Meat” actress, playwright, and director debuted her bump at the premiere of her new film “Mr. Malcolm’s List” on 29 June at the DGA Theatre, New York. Hiddleston, who is most well-known for playing Loki in Marvel’s “Thor”, was not in attendance. Instead, the British star was accompanied by her costars Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù, Theo James, Freida Pinto and Sianad Gregory, and director Emma Holly Jones.

The 37-year-old, who will soon be joining her other half in the Marvel universe with her upcoming 2023 film “The Marvels“, wore a gorgeous gold beaded floor-length gown featuring a dramatic cape by Sabina Bilenko Couture, as she confirmed the lovely news to Vogue in her “getting ready diary”. Her blossoming bump was accentuated by the empire line cut.
And the couple really are the perfect match. Ashton and Hiddleston keep their private life under wraps, but after fans spotted a sparkling ring on Ashton’s finger at the 2022 BAFTAs, Hiddleston confirmed their engagement earlier this summer.
Speaking to the LA Times about his relationship, the 41-year-old English star simply said he was “very happy.”
This love story is incredibly romantic. The pair met while costarring in a West End play in London – a revival of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal”. Hiddleston and Ashton actually played a married couple in this show and in the Broadway version, so you could say it was destiny that they became a couple. The actors were reportedly secretly dating for a long time before they went public. Hiddleston was seen supporting his now-fiancée’s book launch in London and the loved-up duo were pictured attending the US Open together pre-pandemic.
It wasn’t until September 2021, during a cosy PDA-filled beach holiday in Ibiza, that the romance was confirmed. And after what must have been two years of dating, they were finally photographed together at the 2021 Tony Awards. Since then, it is believed that the parents-to-be have settled down in Atlanta, GA.
We love a love story and are sending congratulations to the soon-to-be-parents.
