It’s a boy!

Idris Elba announced Friday (April 18) that his girlfriend Naiyana Garth has given birth to a beautiful baby boy named Winston Elba.

The British actor posted a heart-warming black-and-white photo of baby Winston holding his finger with his tiny little hands. “My son Winston Elba was born yesterday. Truly amazing :),” he captioned the photo.

Idris chose to name his son Winston in honor of his late father, who passed last September after succumbing to lung cancer.

Winston is Idris’ first child with his make-up artist girlfriend, but he also fathers an 11-year-old daughter Isan with his ex-wife Dormowa Sherman.

Congrats to the couple!
