Is Idris Elba Going to
Be a Dad?
Is gorgeous Brit actor Idris Elba off the market?
The 41-year-old actor, who stars in the hit drama Luther and is reportedly being considered as the first black actor to play James Bond, has been stepping out with a mysterious new woman whom several sources claim is his girlfriend. And that's not all - the sources also say that his girlfriend, makeup artist Naiyana Garth, is expecting.
"They've been together for a few months," a source tells UK newspaper The Sun, "but it's really ramped up recently. They get on brilliantly and she's a real hit with his family and friends."
Although Idris hasn't confirmed or denied the rumor about his new lady, there are a couple of online clues that hint at something going on. Naiyana's professional website, where she advertised her extensive film and TV resume, has since been taken down. The website is now listed as "under construction," with no way to contact the owner. Naiyana's once-active Twitter account has also been deleted.
Idris is currently promoting the movie "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," and he is garnering major Oscar buzz for his role as groundbreaking anti-apartheid activist turned South African president Nelson Mandela. Bond girl Naomie Harris costars as Nelson's first wife, Winnie.
