No tricks here! Tom Hiddleston is engaged.

The actor, best known for playing Marvel's trickster god Loki, is set to marry girlfriend and fellow MCU star Zawe Ashton, E! News learned Thursday, March 17.

The news comes days after the actress was spotted in an Instagram photo, posted by British TV host AJ Odudu, wearing what looked like a diamond halo-style engagement ring at the 2022 BAFTA Film Awards, where she and Hiddleston made a rare joint red carpet appearance.

Hiddleston, 41, and Ashton, 37, met while starring together in the 2019 play Betrayal, which marked the Broadway debut of both stars. The pair also starred in the production in their native London earlier that year.

The two sparked romance rumors last September when they were photographed kissing in the ocean while on vacation in Ibiza, Spain. Later that month, they appeared to confirm their romance with a joint appearance at the 2021 Tony Awards.

After playing Thor's brother Loki in six Marvel films, including Avengers: Endgame, Hiddleston reprised the fan-favorite role in the Disney+ series Loki in 2021. A second season is in the works.


In the years prior to meeting Ashton, Hiddleston dated British actress Susanna Fielding for about three years and also had a brief romance with Taylor Swift in 2016.

"Everyone is entitled to a private life," the actor told the U.K. newspaper The Telegraph in 2017, following his breakup with the pop star. "My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life. And those two things are separate."
