1. Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton are reportedly engaged

Tom Hiddleston has found his own glorious purpose: marrying Zawe Ashton. The couple sparked engagement rumors after Ashton was spotted wearing a diamond ring at the British Academy Film Awards recently, and on Thursday, People and Entertainment Tonight confirmed they are, indeed, getting married. Hiddleston and Ashton met starring on Broadway together in Betrayal back in 2019, playing a married couple in the show. They made their debut as a couple on the red carpet at the Tony Awards in September. Hiddleston, who famously dated Taylor Swift in 2016, hasn't confirmed the engagement, and he's previously said he prefers to maintain privacy in his personal life. "My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life," he told The Telegraph. "And those two things are separate." In other words, expect Loki to be fairly low-key about this exciting news.
