That’s the third one! Vogue says that Zawe Ashton and her boyfriend Tom Hiddleston are expecting their first child together.
Ashton, who is 37 years old, went to the premiere of the movie Mr. Malcom’s List on June 29 in New York City. The actress, who plays Julia Thistlewaite in the historical drama, walked the red carpet in a tan, off-the-shoulder, floor-length gown with crystal embroidery that showed off her growing baby bump.
Hiddleston, who is 41 years old, was not at the event, but his co-stars Theo James, Freida Pinto, Sope Dirisu, and Sianad Gregory were.
The actor who played Loki confirmed two weeks ago that he proposed to the star of Velvet Buzzsaw. During an interview with the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday, June 14, the English man said, “I’m very happy.”
Ashton was seen with a diamond ring on her left hand at the 2022 BAFTA Awards in March, which led to rumors that the two were getting married. In the same month, Us Weekly confirmed that after three years together, Hiddleston had popped the question.
After working together on the West End production of Betrayal in 2019, the actors were linked for the first time. When the two of them went to see the show on Broadway together three months later, it just added to the rumors that they were dating.
At the time, Hiddleston talked about how he wanted to keep his love life out of the spotlight. In 2019, the star of Thor: Ragnarok told The New York Times, “I’m probably more protective of my inner world in a different way.” “How much of a life is it if you don’t make connections with other people? Because love is hard to get. You can’t worry about what people might say all the time.”
Later, they walked the red carpet together for the first time at the Tony Awards in September 2021, where Hiddleston was nominated for Best Leading Actor for his role in Betrayal.
In November 2019, the star of Captain Marvel 2 talked about working with Hiddleston and Charlie Cox on AOL’s BUILD series. She said, “We were really lucky that from day one, we had an incredible amount of trust.” “I feel a deep connection to these people because I can feel how open we are with each other. I can tell that we trust each other.”
Later that month, a source told Us exclusively that the couple was “truly past the honeymoon phase” and was “looking to build a long-term future together” while focusing on their careers.
An insider said at the time, “They are crazy about each other.” They are both “hugely ambitious but still take time to relax and switch off from work,” and they both “love to let loose and rock out with friends, whether it’s at a house party or a local bar or restaurant.”
Hiddleston had been linked to Elizabeth Olsen, Susannah Fielding, and Jessica Chastain before he started dating Ashton. The Avengers star also dated Taylor Swift in 2016. After three months together, they broke up.
