English actors Tom Hardy and Charlotte Riley are expecting their first child together. The couple, who married last year, attended the premiere of Legend – in which Tom stars as a pair of gangster twins – at Odeon Leicester Square in London yesterday.

Tom has a son, Louis, from his previous relationship with Rachel Speed; this was after he ended his marriage to Sarah Ward in 2004. He met Charlotte on the set of 2009 TV film Wuthering Heights, and has since also co-starred with her in the second season of British period crime drama Peaky Blinders.

Last night at the premiere, Tom and Charlotte brought another unexpected plus-one: Tom's dog, Woodstock (nicknamed Woody). Not exempt to the buzz of the event, Woody escaped his leash and was only too eager to chase pigeons in front of the press. He even butted in on selfies that Tom was taking with fans.

Tom, a self-professed animal-lover, spotted a stray Woody while filming Lawless in Atlanta in 2011 and adopted the pup. The family is about to get bigger now that Charlotte is expecting. Congratulations!
