Idris Elba has made it very clear in the past that he wants to keep his personal life private. If you’ll recall, this is what he told Angie Martinez about not liking the fact that people always want to know who he’s dating and what’s going on in his life aside from just his TV and film work.
“I mean listen, I really try to avoid it. You know what I mean? It’s part and parcel of being in the public eye I guess. People want to know your stuff. But for the most part, listen, nobody wanted to know anything about me when I was single. Okay? Soon as you get a girlfriend, everybody’s like ‘We want to know. Who is she? We found a photo! We found her Tweets.’ I’m private, I’d like to keep it that way.”
But I guess you could say that Elba has had a change of heart, because he’s been sharing some pretty adorable images of his infant son Winston with fans. Winston Elba was born back in April to the actor and his girlfriend, Naiyana Garth. The young’n is already a big fan of smiling, as Elba’s pictures, posted on his Instagram page, seem to show. Check out a few of the cute snaps of the little guy below (including one with big sister Isan) and let us know if you think Winston looks more like Idris or Ms. Garth.
Oh, and because I have love for ya’ll, I had to share this video of Elba working out for an upcoming role, looking like a topless, sweaty bag of money. Thank me later!
