Idris Elba confirms his girlfriend’s pregnancy


Idris Elba says girlfriend Naiyana Garth is pregnant

Idris Elba is confirming reports that his makeup artist girlfriend is pregnant with his baby. As previously reported the “Mandela” star was spotted at Harper Bazaar‘s “Women of the Year” awards in London with Naiyana Garth on his arm. Garth was sporting a very visible bump and looked happy alongside her hunky actor beau.

On Sunday Elba appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s “Next Chapter” special and confirmed reports that he’s set to be a dad again.

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

He then detailed his feelings about his father Winston Elba’s death from lung cancer that happened shortly after he found out his baby news.

“He was such a tough man and he would just expect me to get on with it,” said Elba.

”When I call my mum’s house the answering machine is still my dad’s voice. The thing about his lung cancer is that it took his voice away, but the answering machine is his full voice. Two things happen…I get super, super sad when I hear that but I’m also really happy that he’s still there. It’s the only bit of his voice that I have.”
