Idris Elba Welcomes New Baby with Younger Girlfriend, Naiyana Garth

Actor Idris Elba, 41, was first spot­ted with makeup artist Naiyana Garth, who’s report­edly around 26 years old, back in March 2013. But the celebrity cou­ple didn’t take their May-December rela­tion­ship pub­lic till that Novem­ber. Not too long after, the celebrity cou­ple revealed some excit­ing news—they were already expect­ing their first child together.

On April 18, Naiyana Garth gave birth to the celebrity couple’s baby boy. Idris Elba shared the heart­warm­ing news via Twit­ter by post­ing a close-up photo of the new­born hold­ing his father’s fin­ger, along with the cap­tion, “My son Win­ston Elba was born yes­ter­day. Truly amazing.”

This is Naiyana Garth’s first child, but Idris Elba is already a father to an 11-year-old daugh­ter from his first marriage.

The actor has always been insis­tent on keep­ing his pri­vate life sep­a­rate from his work life, so it makes sense that he would set­tle down with some­one who isn’t in the spot­light much. Nonethe­less, the celebrity cou­ple is said to be very much in love and thrilled with the arrival of their baby boy.


“‘Truly amaz­ing!’ Idris Elba shares heart-warming pic­ture as he announces the birth of son Win­ston… named after his late father,” Daily Mail web site, April 18, 2014;
