Zawe Ashton and Tom Hiddleston have reportedly taken on new roles: mom and dad. A source confirmed the birth of the actors’ first child to Us Weekly on Oct. 26. “Tom and Zawe are loving being new parents and are filled with joy,” the insider told the outlet. “They have been having the struggles of new parents and aren’t sleeping much but are thrilled.” Reps for both stars did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment.
Ashton, 38, revealed her pregnancy during the press tour for her movie, “Mr. Malcolm’s List,” which premiered in early July. She hit the film’s June 29 premiere with a noticeable baby bump, and confirmed she was expecting in an accompanying video for Vogue. The news closely followed some other exciting developments for the famously private couple: an engagement! After fans spotted a ring on Ashton’s finger at the 2022 BAFTAs, Hiddleston, 41, confirmed their engagement.
The pair first met while costarring as a married couple in a West End play in London — a revival of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal.” The actors were reportedly together for a long time before they went public with their romance in September 2021. They were spotted on a cozy PDA-filled beach holiday in Ibiza and finally photographed together at the 2021 Tony Awards.
