The actor and playwright, 37, debuted her baby bump at the premier of her new film Mr. Malcolm's List on Wednesday (29 June) in New York City.
Ashton wore a floor-length off-the-shoulder gown made from delicate gold-coloured fabric.
The Thor actor known for his role of Loki, 41, was not at the premiere however she was joined by her co-stars Freida Pinto, Sope Dirisu, Theo James and Sianad Gregory and the film's director, Emma Holly Jones.
Tom confirmed the couple were engaged earlier this month. “I’m very happy,” the actor told the Los Angeles Times. The couple sparked engagement rumours after Zawe was pictured wearing a ring on that finger at the 2022 BAFTAs.
The two actors began dating in 2019 after they were co-stars in the play Betrayal however the pair have mostly refrained from sharing details of their relationship publicly.
The play told the story of Robert, a man whose wife Emma (played by Zawe) is having an affair with his best friend, Jerry (played by Daredevil star Charlie Cox).
The tragic story is told in reverse, with the aftermath of the affair shown at the beginning.
Betrayal ran at West End's Harold Pinter Theatre between March and June 2019. In August the play was transferred to Broadway's Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre for a three-month run.
Mr. Malcolm’s List is a period drama film based on Allain’s novel of the same name. It follows a young woman in 1800s England who helps her friend get revenge on a suitor who rejected her for failing a requirement on his long list of qualifications for a bride.
Zawe plays Julia Thistlewaite and the film is scheduled to be released on Friday 1 July.
