Tom Hiddleston is expecting his first child with fiancée Zawe Ashton, a source confirmed to Page Six after she debuted her baby bump at the June 29 premiere of Mr. Malcolm's List.

Zawe seemed to tease the news on her Instagram Story before the event, writing, "Here we go..." 

The Marvels actress stepped out at the New York premiere while wearing a beige, off-the-shoulder gown. She then posed for pictures alongside co-stars Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù, Emma Holly Jones, Freida Pinto and Theo James.

E! News has reached out to their reps for comment but hasn't heard back yet.

Tom—who dated Taylor Swift in 2016—previously reflected on all the public attention he receives about his love life. 

"A relationship in the limelight… A relationship always takes work," he told GQ in 2017. "A relationship in the limelight takes work. And it's not just the limelight. It's everything else."
