“Avengers” star Tom Hiddleston becomes a father for the first time

Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton keep their personal lives out of the public eye. But now the Hollywood couple made an exception.

Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton 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 silver sparkling 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 joined by her “Mr. Malcolm’s List” co-stars, Freida Pinto, Sope Dirisu and Theo James, along with director Emma Holly Jones, among others.

“I am very happy”

Hiddleston only confirmed his engagement to Zawe Ashton in mid-June. There had previously been rumors that 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.
