‘Tom and Zawe are loving being new parents and are filled with joy,’ a source revealed to the outlet of the first-time parents.
The insider also noted they are ‘having the struggles of new parents and aren’t sleeping much but are thrilled.’

DailyMail.com has reached out to the couple’s representatives for comment.
The couple’s romance blossomed after they starred in the 2019 play Betrayal and has gone from strength to strength since – eventually leading to a proposal in March.
In June, he confirmed he was set to wed the beauty but kept tight lipped about the romance, simply telling the LA Times: ‘I’m very happy’ and nothing more.
Tom and Zawe previously set tongues wagging about a possible engagement as they appeared at the BAFTAs earlier this year, after which she was pictured wearing a huge diamond sparkler on her ring finger in a photo shared by host AJ Odudu.

The couple were reportedly congratulated by industry friends at the BAFTAs – after Zawe hid her hand as she took to the red carpet in a pink cape dress.
Zawe concealed her stunning diamond-encrusted ring from photographers on the red carpet, draping her stunning flowing pink gown over her hand.
Tom, meanwhile, looked devilishly handsome in a black blazer and trousers, as he posed hand-in-hand with Zawe.

However, later in the ballroom of London’s Grosvenor Hotel the couple caught up with TV personality AJ who snapped a picture, which showed the diamond ring.
Zawe and Tom have worked hard over the years to kept their relationship out of the spotlight.
Tom played Robert in their 2019 play, Betrayal, while Zawe starred as his on-stage wife Emma.
The couple confirmed their romance during a steamy PDA-filled holiday at the beach in Ibiza in September last year before making their red carpet debut together at the Tony Awards in New York City.
Last year it was revealed the pair had moved in together after months of romance rumors, and they are now said to be living together in Atlanta, Georgia.
Sources close to the duo said The Night Manager star, and the actress are ‘very well suited and enjoy the quieter side of life’.

An insider told The Sun: ‘Tom and Zawe have stayed quiet about their relationship but she has spent the last few weeks with him in the US.
‘They are very well suited and enjoy the quieter side of life away from the glitz and glamour of the showbiz world.’
Tom was also said to be wary of highlighting the romance due to the attention his past relationship with Taylor Swift drew.
A source said: ‘Tom really has fallen for Zawe in a big way. But he is so paranoid about his private life since his relationship with Taylor that he has gone to great lengths to keep this under wraps.’

Tom told the New York Times after his romance with Taylor: ‘Yes, I’m protective about my internal world now in probably a different way. That’s because I didn’t realize it needed protecting before.’
During Tom’s short-lived fling with Taylor the pair didn’t shy away from showing off their romance with lots of public outings.
The couple got together shortly after Taylor’s split from Calvin Harris after first meeting at the Met Gala in May 2016, and during the first few weeks of their romance they travelled around the world together.
They even took the huge step of meeting one another’s parents, with Taylor jetting to the UK to spend time with Tom’s mother in Suffolk, while he went to her adopted home town 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, with the pair splitting up in 2011.
