And we'd totally forgotten they were together.

It was just a few months ago that we were reminded of the acting power couple Zawe Ashton and Tom Hiddleston (after very much forgetting they were together) when they cut an impressive figure on the BAFTA red carpet together. There were then reports that the pair were engaged at the event, as Zawe was seen showing off her ring in a photo alongside Tom and TV personality AJ Odudu. And last month, the pair confirmed the news.

But, now, excitingly, it turns out the pair are now expecting their first child. Congratulations! Looking radiant, Zawe debuted the bump at the premiere of her new film Mr Malcom’s List, in New York City on Wednesday night. And she confirmed the news in an article with Vogue about getting ready for the event.

So, how long have they been our favourite power couple? For those who need a reminder, the pair were actually romantically linked way back in 2019, but you could be forgiven for not knowing that, as they've been pretty private since. How did they meet? Well, the stars met at work - as they were both in the West End production of Betrayal, which sent the romance rumours into overdrive.

It's been reported that they were actually together since February 2019, but it wasn't until September that it was picked up In the showbiz world - with a source even telling The Sun that Tom has been more private about his love life since his famous relationship with Taylor Swift.

An insider told the paper at the time: 'Tom really has fallen for Zawe in a big way. They’ve actually been together for more than six months. But he is so paranoid about his private life since his relationship with Taylor that he has gone to great lengths to keep this under wraps.' They even added that Tom thinks Zawe could be the 'love of his life' - cute.

Since, the couple have gone public, making their first red carper appearance at the Tony Awards (casual!) They were also pictured in Ibiza on holiday that month.

And from then, with their loved-up appearance at the BAFTAs, THAT ring, and their exciting baby news, it's clear things couldn't be sweeter for the pair.
