Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton are expecting offspring. This has now become clear through an appearance by the actress in New York.

Tom Hiddleston (41) and Zawe Ashton (37) become parents! The 37-year-old showed off her baby bump at a screening of Mr. Malcolm’s List in New York City on Wednesday. There she appeared on the red carpet in a beaded light tulle gown by Sabina Bilenko Couture. She combined sparkling silver pumps with the floor-length, shoulder-free robe.

Vogue magazine also reports on the actress’ pregnancy and features pictures of Zawe Ashton preparing for the event. Tom Hiddleston was not present at the event. Ashton was accompanied by her co-stars from “Mr. Malcolm’s List”: Freida Pinto (37), Sope Dirisu (31) and Theo James (37) as well as director Emma Holly Jones (34) were among others on site.

engagement confirmed

Hiddleston only confirmed his engagement to Zawe Ashton in mid-June. Rumors had previously surfaced after the actress was spotted wearing a suspicious ring at the BAFTA Awards in March. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, the “Loki” star spoke briefly about his relationship with his British actress colleague and said: “I’m very happy” when asked about his engagement.

Hiddleston and Ashton are said to have met while working together on the 2019 play Betrayal. However, they didn’t confirm their relationship until 2021. Hiddleston is known for keeping his personal life private.

Marvel star protects his private life

The actor told The Telegraph in 2017, “My work is public space and I have a personal life. And those two things are separate.” Two years later, he added in The New York Times: “I probably protect my insides in a different way now. That’s because I didn’t know before that it needed to be protected.” The decisive factor could have been a liaison with music star Taylor Swift (32) in 2016, which made plenty of headlines.
