Idris Elba Finally Confirms Baby Rumors

By  | 


Idris Elba has finally confirmed the news that he is expecting a baby with girlfriend Naiyana Garth.

Rumors began last month, but the 41-year-old actor has been dodging questions about a pregnancy with the London-based makeup artist. Nothing was confirmed until Sunday night when he appeared on Oprah’s Next Chapter.

“My girlfriend’s having a baby, yes,” Idris confessed.

The moment he found out proved to be bittersweet as it was in the midst of grieving his father’s lost battle with lung cancer.

This will be his second child. The actor also has an 11-year-old daughter named Isan from a previous relationship.
