AceShowbiz - Tom Hiddleston has finally broken his silence following speculations that he had popped the question to Zawe Ashton earlier this year. The Loki depicter in MCU has confirmed he is engaged to his partner.
The "Loki" star has been in a relationship with the former "Fresh Meat" actress, who he met when they co-starred in a revival of "Betrayal" in London's West End, for three years and following speculations he had popped the question earlier this year, he has admitted that is true, though he declined to comment further on their relationship. He simply told the Los Angeles Times newspaper, "I'm very happy."
Tom and Zawe sparked rumors they were engaged at the BAFTA Awards when a candid photo shared online by AJ Odudu showed the 37-year-old actress was sporting a huge diamond on her ring finger, but her hands were covered by her flowing sleeves when the couple had posed on the red carpet earlier in the evening.
The pair only went public with their romance last year, but it is believed they had been living together in Atlanta, Georgia, for some time before then while Tom was shooting "Loki". A source previously said, "Tom and Zawe have stayed quiet about their relationship but she has spent the last few weeks with him in the U.S."
"They are very well suited and enjoy the quieter side of life away from the glitz and glamor of the showbiz world," the insider continued. "Their lives are typically very busy, so spending time together while not working has been, something they have both embraced."
It was previously claimed "The Night Manager" actor had grown more private about his personal life following the scrutiny of his brief romance with Taylor Swift. A source said, "Tom really has fallen for Zawe in a big way."
"But he is so paranoid about his private life since his relationship with Taylor that he has gone to great lengths to keep this under wraps," added the informant. "Tom and Zawe spent Easter together renovating his house in England. They now spend most weekends together and going for long walks with his dog. He thinks this could be the love of his life, he's ready to settle down."
