AceShowbiz - Congratulations are in order for Tom Hiddleston and his fiancee Zawe Ashton. Months after confirming their engagement, the happy couple reportedly welcomed their first child together.
On Wednesday, October 26, Us Weekly reported that Zawe secretly gave birth to the couple's new bundle of joy. "Tom and Zawe are loving being new parents and are filled with joy," a source confirmed. "They have been having the struggles of new parents and aren't sleeping much but are thrilled."
Tom and Zawe first met in 2019 when they were cast as husband and wife in a West End revival of the play "Betrayal". The pair later confirmed their relationship when they made their red-carpet debut as a couple at the 2021 Tony Awards.
The couple then sparked engagement rumors back in March when Zawe was seen wearing a massive diamond ring at the 2022 BAFTA Awards. Then in June, the "Loki" star confirmed that he's engaged to Zawe. "I'm very happy," he told the Los Angeles Times on June 14.
A few weeks later, Zawe appeared to announce that she's pregnant. When gracing the red carpet at the "Mr. Malcolm's List" premiere in New York City, the "Velvet Buzzsaw" actress showed off her growing baby bump in a floor-length gown.
In the meantime, Tom, who stars alongside his 38-year-old fiancee, was nowhere to be seen at the event. At the event, Zawe, who plays Julia Thistlewaite in the period drama based on the novel of the same name, was joined by co-stars Freida Pinto, Sope Dirisu, Theo James, Sianad Gregory as well as director Emma Holly Jones.
Prior to dating Zawe, Tom was in a romantic relationship with actress Susannah Fielding from 2008 to 2011. The "Thor: Ragnarok" actor also dated country-turned-pop star Taylor Swift in 2016. Despite their split, there seemed to be no hard feelings between the two as he dubbed the "All Too Well" hitmaker "an amazing woman."
