Idris Elba is having a busy busy year. It would be enough if he was just starring in his hit BBC show Luther, filming for Thor: The Dark World, and preparing an upcoming film project about legendary South African leader Nelson Mandela. However, it sounds like one of Britain’s sexiest actors had another very important project in the works: his first child with girlfriend Naiyana Garth!
Us Weekly reports the happy news after catching up with the star at a screening for the Thor sequel. It’s the first child for Naiyana, a makeup artist, and the second for Idris, who has an 11-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. The happy couple met in March and are reportedly “thrilled” about having a little one on the way.
So thrilled, in fact, that they couldn’t help but grin ear to ear as Naiyana debuted her baby bump on the red carpet at the Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year awards in London. Naiyana wore a tummy-hugging black dress that showed off her pregnant belly.
One thing’s for sure. That baby has some excellent genes.
