Tom Hiddleston and fiancée Zawy Ashton are expecting their first child together.
A source confirmed to Page Six that Ashton is pregnant after the actress debuted her baby bump on the red carpet at the premiere of her new movie “Mr. Malcolm’s List,” in New York City on Wednesday night.
Ashton – who plays Julia Thistlewhite in the period drama inspired by the novel of the same name – starred on the red carpet in a gold embroidered chiffon gown with an off-the-shoulder.
Although Hiddleston was not present at the premiere, Ashton was joined by co-stars Freida Pinto, Sope Dirisu, Theo James and Sianad Gregory, as well as director Emma Holly Jones.
Earlier this month, Hiddleston, 41, finally confirmed he was engaged to Ashton, 37, after months of speculation.
“I’m so happy,” he told the Los Angeles Times on June 14, three months after the former “Betrayal” co-stars sparked rumors of his engagement at the 2022 BAFTA Awards. At the time, the actress was photographed wearing a ring from Diamonds on that finger.
Although the duo had not previously addressed their relationship status publicly, we later confirmed that they were engaged.
Hiddleston previously dated actress Susanna Fielding from 2008 to 2011, as well as Taylor Swift in 2016. Even after his split from the Grammy winner, he told GQ that she’s a “wonderful woman.”
The “Loki” star later clarified in an interview in February 2017 that his brief relationship with Swift was “of course… real,” adding, “She’s gracious and kind and beautiful, and we had the best time.”
The actor indicated that he wanted a “regular” relationship with the singer-songwriter, who is dating English actor Joe Alwyn.
“I only know the woman I met,” he explained at the time. “A relationship always requires work. A relationship in the spotlight takes a lot of effort.”
