The fine specimen that is Idris Elba just became infinitely more hot (as if that were possible), as he became the father of a new baby boy on April 17! It is the first child for the Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom actor and his girlfriend Naiyana Garth.

“My Son Winston Elba was born yesterday..Truly Amazing :-)” the Oscar nominee tweeted today, alongside maybe one of the cutest photos of all time. Seriously, peep that photo at the left — are you not squeeing right now?

In the shot, you see Idris’s finger being gripped by the little Winston’s teeny tiny newborn hand. Can you imagine seeing that precious father-son moment go down in-person?

Lucky for Winston, he’s also got a big sister, Isan, 11, to look out for him! She’s the daughter of Idris and his ex-wife, Dormowa Sherma. There may be a big age difference, but think of all the free babysitting!

Congratulations to the beautiful couple! We can’t wait to meet the rest of the sweet little boy attached to that hand!

Is that photo the cutest thing ever? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
