Tom Hiddleston is briefly acknowledged his engagement in a new interview published by the Los Angeles Times Tuesday.

"I’m very happy," Hiddleston said, keeping his response short but sweet when asked about his March proposal to Ashton.

He echoed a similar sentiment back in April after ET's Rachel Smith congratulated him on his engagement while on The Essex Serpent red carpet.

"Thank you very much. Yes, I’m very happy," Hiddleston gushed while at the premiere for the Apple TV+ series. "I’m so happy."

ET learned that the pair, who have been private about their relationship, would be tying the knot after sparking engagement rumors while attending the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) in March.

While at the ceremony in London, England, Ashton was seen sporting a stunning diamond ring. The couple wowed on the red carpet, with 41-year-old Hiddleston sporting a dapper black tuxedo and 37-year-old Ashton in a beautiful, draped blush pink gown. 

Though Ashton held a black clutch purse in her hand on the red carpet, mostly hiding her shiny new accessory, the ring was on full display when the couple posed with British television presenter AJ Odudu at the event. The accessory features a large oval-shaped diamond with tiny diamonds encircling it.

Hiddleston and Ashton met on the set of the 2019 play Betrayal, which premiered in London's West End before they brought it to Broadway. Though they didn't confirm their relationship status at the time, some reports claim they started dating after working together on the production.

In September 2021, the couple was spotted packing on the PDA while going for a swim in Ibiza, Spain. Later that month, they walked their first red carpet together at the Tony Awards

Hiddleston previously dated British actress Susanna Fielding for three years and was briefly linked to Taylor Swift in 2016. The A-listers embarked on a short-lived whirlwind romance, which included him wearing the aforementioned "I love T.S." tee, after they were seen hanging out at the Met Gala. It is believed Swift's song, "Getaway Car," was inspired by their brief relationship.
