Actors Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton are engaged after dating for nearly three years, PEOPLE reported. Romance reportedly blossomed between the two when they co-starred in the 2019 play Betrayal. Since then, they have kept their relationship pretty much out of the spotlight.

“Everyone is entitled to a private life. I love what I do and I dedicate myself with absolute commitment to making great art and great entertainment, and in my mind I don’t conflict the two. My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life. And those two things are separate,” the 41-year-old ‘Loki‘ actor had previously said in an interview with The Telegraph about why he doesn’t talk about his romantic relationships.
