The speculation is over-- Idris Elba and girlfriend Naiyana Garth are expecting their first child together!
Whisperings of a baby on board began circulating in November as the pair attended Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards with a little extra something, something in tow. Garth hinted at the good news via Twitter, but it was Elba's confirmation that sealed the deal.
"My girlfriend's having a baby, yes," he told Oprah Winfrey in a recent interview. This will be the second child for Elba who shares an 11-year-old daughter with ex-wife Dormowa Sherma.
Garth is a makeup artist who resides in London.
This is great news for the 41-year-old actor who is garnering rave reviews for his portrayal of the late Nelson Mandela in Long Walk to Freedom. The film recently broke a record in South Africa for an impressive opening day.
Congratulations to Elba and Garth!
