Tom Hiddleston put to rest any remaining questions about the legitimacy of HiddleSwift on Thursday.

“We are together and we’re very happy,” he told MTV in an interview about his new relationship while speaking about his first Emmy nomination.

He also told The Hollywood Reporter the relationship “is not a publicity stunt.”

The Thor star received a nod for Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie for his role as a former British soldier who becomes an undercover spy in AMC’s six-part miniseries, The Night Manager.

According to MTV, the actor celebrated — not surprisingly — with some dancing. “I did a little sort of shake of happiness,” he said. “There were rumblings, there were stirrings, but they didn’t fully express themselves in explicit dance moves, shall we say.”

Accompanied by Swift, Hiddleston is currently in Australia shooting Thor: Ragnarok. The duo were first seen getting cozy in mid-June weeks after her split from Calvin Harris, and the new couple’s whirlwind romance has taken them to Nashville, Rome and England.

The “Shake It Off” singer and the actor met at the Met Gala in May and were caught on video having a friendly dance-off.
