Tom Hiddleston has been seen for the first time since he became a father.
The Eton and Cambridge-educated actor, 42, welcomed a baby boy with Fresh Meat star Zawe Ashton last October.
He and Ashton, 38, have yet to reveal their son’s name or gender.
The couple first met in 2019 when they played husband and wife in a revival of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal.
Tom was seen pushing a pram while walking his dog in north London, striking a casual figure in a blue hoodie and shorts.

He also wore a blue cap, looked thoughtful as he listened to music on his walk, and then waved to a fan on a main street.
It comes after a source told US Weekly in October: “Tom and Zawe love being new parents and are overjoyed.”
The source also noted that “they are having the difficulties of new parents and not getting much sleep, but they are excited.”
DailyMail.com contacted the couple’s representatives for comment at the time.
In June, Tom confirmed that he was ready to marry the beauty, but kept his mouth shut about the romance, simply telling the The Los Angeles Times: ‘I am very happy’ and nothing more.
Tom and Zawe discussed a potential engagement when they appeared at the BAFTAs last year, after which she was pictured with a massive diamond sparkler on her ring finger in a photo shared by presenter AJ Odudu.
The couple were reportedly congratulated by industry friends at the ceremony, after Zawe hid her hand as she made her way to the red carpet in a pink cape dress.
The Fresh Meat star hid her stunning diamond-encrusted ring from photographers on the red carpet, covering her hand in her stunning, flowing pink gown.

Casual cool: He also wore a blue cap, looking thoughtful as he listened to music as he strolled down a highway and then down a main street.
Meanwhile, Tom looked handsome in a black blazer and pants, as he posed hand in hand with Zawe.
Later, in the ballroom of London’s Grosvenor Hotel, the couple ran into TV personality AJ, who took a photo showing the diamond ring.
Zawe and Tom have worked hard over the years to keep their relationship out of the spotlight.
The couple confirmed their romance during an affectionate beach vacation in Ibiza in September 2021 before making their red carpet debut together at the Tony Awards in New York City.
Also in 2021, it was revealed that the couple had moved in together after months of romance rumors, now reportedly living together in Atlanta, Georgia.
Sources close to the duo said The Night Manager star and the actress are “very well adjusted and enjoy the quieter side of life”.
A source told The Sun: ‘Tom and Zawe have kept quiet about their relationship, but she has spent the last few weeks with him in the US.
“They adjust very well and enjoy the quieter side of life, away from the glitz and glamor of show business.”
It was also said that Tom was wary of highlighting the romance due to the attention his past relationship with Taylor Swift drew.
A source said: ‘Tom has really fallen for Zawe big time. But he’s so paranoid about his private life since his relationship with Taylor that he’s done everything he can to keep this a secret.
Tom told the New York Times after his affair with Taylor: “Yeah, I’m protective of my inner world now probably in a different way.” That’s because I didn’t realize I needed protection before.

During Tom’s brief fling with Taylor, the couple didn’t shy away from showing off their romance with plenty of public outings.
The couple reunited shortly after Taylor’s split from Calvin Harris after they first met at the Met Gala in May 2016, and during the first weeks of their romance they traveled the world together.
They even took the big step of meeting each other’s parents, with Taylor flying to the UK to spend time with Tom’s mother in Suffolk, while he went to his adopted hometown of Nashville, before calling it quits in late 2016.
Along with his highly publicized relationship with Taylor in 2016, Tom also previously dated his Wallander co-star Susannah Fielding, and the couple split in 2011.
