Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton are parents!

Us Weekly reported that the engaged couple recently welcomed the birth of their first child together.

"Tom and Zawe are loving being new parents and are filled with joy," a source told the outlet. "They have been having the struggles of new parents and aren't sleeping much but are thrilled."

The actress seemingly confirmed her pregnancy when she debuted her baby bump at the premiere for her latest movie, Mr. Malcolm's List, this past June. A source for Page Six also confirmed that the couple, who publicly confirmed their relationship last year, were expecting their first child.

At the time, Ashton looked radiant on the red carpet in an embellished champagne tulle gown, designed by Sabina Bilenko Couture.

Hiddleston previously opened up about his engagement to Ashton in an interview with the Los Angeles Times in June, saying simply, "I'm very happy."

In 2019, the two played husband and wife in Betrayal, a drama that puts a critical lens to the end of a marriage.

A source close to the production told People that the two had "lovely" chemistry together. "They were very private publicly, but behind the scenes you could just see a lovely chemistry," the insider said. "There were twinkles in both of their eyes, and the entire company, including Charlie Cox, were all very close."

Their relationship only got stronger offstage. "And being Brits abroad, they would hang out frequently. Zawe and Tom showed great affection for each other, and you could also see that coming off slightly in their onstage performance," the source added. "Tom has always been a very, very private person. Behind the scenes, they would just privately be affectionate and hugging and sitting next to each other and holding hands."
