Actor Idris Elba and his girlfriend Naiyana Garth welcomed a baby boy on Thursday, April 17.
The “Thor: The Dark World” actor announced the news via Twitter on Friday. 41-year-old Elba shared, “My Son Winston Elba was born yesterday… Truly Amazing!” He also revealed an adorable black and white photo of baby Winston latching on to Elba's finger.
The actor previously opened up about the heartache he felt when he learned that a former girlfriend was dishonest about Elba being her son’s biological father. When later asked in an interview with “Essence” magazine about his reaction to finding out the news, the actor said, "The celebration of having a son— from a man's perspective, it's massive."
Winston is the actor's second child. He has an older daughter with his ex-wife.
