Actress Zawe Ashton and Hollywood sensation Tom Hiddleston are now engaged. The very private Hiddleston merely told the LA Times, “I’m extremely thrilled,” when asked about his engagement.
Hiddleston said in 2017 to The Telegraph, “Everyone has a right to a private life.” “I truly believe that I don’t have to choose between producing excellent art and excellent entertainment because I enjoy what I do. I lead a private life in addition to doing public tasks. And the two of those are distinct.”
Ashton revealed to Vogue that she is expecting in June 2022, just before she walked the red carpet for Mr. Malcolm’s List premiere in New York City. Us Weekly said that the couple had quietly had their first child in October 2022.
All the information you really have to know regarding Zawe Ashton and her romance with Tom Hiddleston is provided below.
Who Is Tom Hiddleston Dating?
Tom has most recently been romantically involved with Zawe from Fresh Meat. They apparently shared a residence in Atlanta, Georgia, and collaborated on the West End production of Betrayal in London in 2019. Zawe and Tom have kept their romance under wraps.
But she has recently spent time with him in the US, and an informant told The Sun in July 2020. According to reports, Zawe, 37, and The Night Manager actor, 41, “extremely well suited and appreciate life’s simpler pleasures outside of the glitz and glamour of showbiz.
Because of how hectic their lives are usually, they have both embraced the opportunity to spend time alongside while not working. During the lockdown, Tom established a home there in Atlanta, and he plans to stay there the remainder of the year.”

In September 2021, more than a year later, when Zawe joined Tom at the Tony Awards, the couple made it clear they were in a committed relationship. The Inheritance actor Andrew Burnap won the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play award, beating out Tom, who was nominated for the same category for his work in Betrayal.
They have since been seen holding hands while on vacation and attending charity galas together, solidifying their position as a happy couple. Now you know, then.
What Do We Know About Zawe Ashton?
Born and raised in London, Zawe Ashton is the daughter of two schoolteachers, a white British father, and a Ugandan mother. She attributes her sense of humor to her parents, telling the Guardian that they are her favorite comedy double act.
She also comes from a political family: Paulo Muwanga, her maternal grandpa, briefly held the de facto presidency of Uganda in May 1980 as well as the position of president in August 1985.
It is quite weird to be such a tiny person yet know what you want to do, as Ashton said, but she always knew she wanted to be an actress. She studied at the Manchester School of Theatre as well as the Anna Scher Theatre School.
She is a talented writer and was the 2000 London Poetry Slam Champion. Both her short film Happy Toys and her premiere play Harm’s Way have received nominations for the Best British Short at the Raindance Film Festival and the Verity Bargate Award, respectively.
In 2019, Ashton released a memoir titled Character Breakdown, which renowned British author Bernardine Evaristo named one of her top 20 works by Black British women writers.
Evaristo claims that Ashton’s autobiography, “Character Breakdown is Zawe Ashton’s story of her playing career and how her identity was fashioned by her years spent in the theatre. It is smart, engaging, and unflinchingly honest. In addition to providing a personal story, Ashton offers a razor-sharp analysis of the show’s business gloss and glamour as well as its pervasive racism.”
Are Tome Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton Engaged And Expecting A Baby?
People announced their engagement after spotting a diamond ring on Ashton’s finger during the March 2022 BAFTAs. However, neither responded to the story until Hiddleston’s interview with the LA Times in June 2022, during which he said, “I’m delighted,” and disclosed that they had become engaged in March 2022.
The news of Zawe and Tom’s first child together was revealed on June 30, 2022. Zawe attended a New York City showing of her movie Mr. Malcolm’s List and made a viral announcement about her developing baby belly. Before the film’s release, behind-the-scenes photos showed her pregnancy in even more detail.
