More baby news to share!
Idris Elba and his girlfriend, makeup artist Naiyana Garth, welcomed a healthy baby boy into the world yesterday, and his name is Winston Elba. The actor posted a picture of his newborn son grasping on to his finger and captioned it with “My Son Winston Elba was born yesterday..Truly Amazing :-)”
This news is heartwarming to hear, considering the fact that a while ago, Elba was led to believe by a woman he was seeing for a few years that she was pregnant with his son. He told the press and was super excited, only to find out later that he really wasn’t the father. He spoke about that emotional ordeal in GQ last year:
“It wasn’t immediately obvious—well, it was, because he didn’t look like me,” Elba says. “But it wasn’t immediately obvious what had gone down.
You know, the truth is—like, even admitting it, I’ll probably get laughed at for the rest of my life. But it is just tragic, and it happened.” He looks directly at me when he says this. “But I wasn’t knocked out. I stood right the f**k back up, and I ain’t aiming to take another punch in the face ever again. Do you understand what I’m saying? It happened to me. I moved on.”
Congratulations to Idris and his lady love on their blessing. This little guy is his second child. Elba has an 11-year-old daughter named Isan from his previous marriage.
