Hiddleston, Ashton expecting first child


English actors Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton are expecting their first child together.

Ashton broke the news Wednesday in glamorous fashion by attending a movie premiere in a sparkly beige dress draped elegantly over her growing baby bump. Hiddleston did not accompany his new fiancee to the event.

Ashton also confirmed the pregnancy for a Vogue photo shoot capturing her preparation for the New York City screening of “Mr. Malcolm’s List.” She stars in the romantic comedy set in the 19th century.

“It was such a privilege to work on this dress for Zawe,” said fashion designer Sabina Bilenko, who crafted the shimmering tulle gown worn by Ashton for the big debut.

According to People magazine, Hiddleston, 41, and Ashton, 37, first sparked dating rumors in August 2019 after playing a married couple onstage in Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal” on London’s West End. In March, the “Loki” star proposed to the “Velvet Buzzsaw” performer, who will reportedly join her fiance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for “The Marvels,” the sequel to 2019’s “Captain Marvel.”

“I’m very happy,” a newly engaged Hiddleston told the L.A. Times last month.

“Mr. Malcolm’s List” opened in theaters Friday.
