On Sunday, November 19, Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton had a great time at the 67th annual Evening Standard Theatre Awards in London.
Hiddleston, 42, appeared to be adopting Loki’s color scheme as he wore a dark green velvet suit, bowtie, and white shirt. The 39-year-old Ashton looked amazing in a shimmering dark blue gown with a silver shoulder cape.
Smiling for the cameras, the engaged couple embraced and held hands. They were spotted chatting with Rosa Robson, Paapa Essiedu, Ian McKellen, and other British theater stars during the awards ceremony.
Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton crossed paths while working in the theater
The play Betrayal brought the amazing couple Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton together for the first time in 2019. Throughout their relationship, they maintained a low profile, but after attending the 2022 BAFTAs together, they gained more notoriety.
At a June Mr. Malcolm’s List screening, the Marvel actress and Loki actor revealed their engagement and the good news of their first child’s approaching arrival.
Hiddleston expressed his excitement about the engagement to the Los Angeles Times, but he would not go into details. The couple’s love story has occasionally surfaced during their rare public appearances despite their discreet nature.
Tom Hiddleston and Zawe’s romantic journey began in 2018 when they worked together on the West End production of “Betrayal” in London. The following year, they carried on the play’s run in the United States. Their relationship was growing as the play was coming to an end.
Their first public display of affection came when they walked the red carpet at the Tony Awards in September 2021. The following year saw the happy milestone of welcoming their first child together.
Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton are happy parents now
Following Ashton’s birth, Us Weekly was informed by an exclusive source that Tom and Zawe are incredibly happy and thoroughly enjoying their role as new parents. They are ecstatic despite the challenges that come with being new parents, like sleepless nights.
When Hiddleston discussed fatherhood earlier this month on the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, he said that, of course, becoming a father had changed his perspective.
Though I believe I always knew it would, I never realized how profoundly it would affect me until it did. Indeed, it occurs both before and after.
Because they respect their privacy, the couple has decided not to reveal their child’s name or gender. Nevertheless, they have conversed about their mutual affinity for Marvel.
Since Thor was released in 2011, Hiddleston has played Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ashton, on the other hand, joined the MCU earlier this month when she appeared as Dar-Benn, the antagonist, in The Marvels.
Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton’s words for each other
Speaking about Zawe Ashton’s performance in The Marvels on a podcast about playing supervillains, Tom Hiddleston expressed his admiration for the piece.
After seeing her perform recently, he thought it strange to talk about their experiences. He is sincerely proud of Ashton, even though he would rather that she talk about her work on her terms. They’ve laughed together over pragmatic issues like using zippers and taking bathroom breaks.
In July, Ashton shared with Entertainment Weekly some of Hiddleston’s advice, which included the significance of having enough zippers for comfortable bathroom use in costumes.
Still, it wasn’t the only advice he gave. He said to me, ‘You’ll have an amazing experience on those sets if you approach this with an open heart, a strong work ethic, and the desire to simply provide the fans an amazing experience,'” Ashton remembered. He instilled confidence in me in that way.”
