That Was Fast! Idris Elba’s Adorable Daughter Isan Is All Grown Up
On July 31, Idris Elba attended the New York City premiere of his new film, The Dark Tower. Per the usual, the actor brought along his daughter, Isan, and she also brought a friend out to enjoy the event. But we couldn’t help but notice that Isan, 15, is pretty much all grown up now. If you’ll recall, we were first formally introduced to the beauty when she was Idris’s date to the Oscars a few years ago. Back then she was still a young girl, and now, she’s a young lady in makeup and heels, but she still makes time to be her father’s plus-one at all the major industry soirees:
Isan is her mother’s (Hanne Norgaard) twin but with her dad’s nose and mouth (and complexion, of course). And since her parents are two very good looking people, it’s no surprise that she is quite the beauty as well.
She’s also inherited their confidence thanks to the encouragement of her famous father.
“My daughter and I speak about having the confidence to believe in your own journey and not to follow others,” he told Essence. “We speak about that a lot—confidence and belief, and not following anyone else’s shine, but rather following your own shine…It’s really important to have that self-belief and that self-heartbeat.”
Check out a few more images of Isan on the red carpet with her dad, including photos from when she was just a little girl by his side, as well as more up-to-date images of Idris’s firstborn (ICYMI: he also has a son named Winston):
