Tom Hiddleston and Fiancée Zawe Ashton Are Expecting Their First Child

Tom Hiddleston and Fiancée Zawe Ashton Are Expecting Their First Child

Tom Hiddleston and his fiancée Zawe Ashton have a baby on the way.

Ashton debuted her growing belly at a special screening of Mr. Malcolm’s List in New York City on Wednesday night, walking the red carpet solo. Vogue confirmed the news that she’s expecting in an article covering the behind-the-scenes of the actress getting ready for the event. She wore a beige bead-embellished tulle gown by Sabina Bilenko Couture for the occasion which featured an empire waist, off-the-shoulder neckline and delicate cape sleeves. Ashton plays Julia Thistlewaite in the period drama, a 19th century society lady who courts and then seeks her revenge on the city’s most eligible bachelor, Mr. Malcolm, played by Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù.

Ashton and Hiddleston first sparked rumors they were engaged in March of this year when they walked the red carpet together at the BAFTA awards and the actress seemed to keep her left ring finger conspicuously out of sight. In a selfie shared by British TV presenter AJ Odudu on her Instagram Stories later that night, Ashton could be seen wearing a very large diamond ring on that finger. Earlier this month, Hiddleston finally confirmed the happy news in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, telling the outlet, “I’m very happy.”

The two actors first met when they starred together in the 2019 West End production of the play Betrayal, making their red carpet debut as a couple at the Tony Awards in September of last year. The play follows the story of Hiddleston’s character Robert, a man whose wife Emma, played by Ashton, is having an affair with his best friend. Last year, it was also reported that the pair had moved in together and were living in Atlanta, Georgia, per the Daily Mail.

At the time of their engagement, a source close to the Betrayal production told People that, “They were very private publicly, but behind the scenes you could just see a lovely chemistry. There were twinkles in both of their eyes, and the entire company, including Charlie Cox, were all very close.” They explained that, “Being Brits abroad, they would hang out frequently. Zawe and Tom showed great affection for each other, and you could also see that coming off slightly in their onstage performance. Tom has always been a very, very private person. Behind the scenes, they would just privately be affectionate and hugging and sitting next to each other and holding hands.”
