This is Elba’s second child. The actor also has a daughter Isan, 11, with his ex-wife Dormowa Sherma. Idris has been in a committed relationship with Naiyana since March 2013. Naiyana is no stranger to the film industry as she is a makeup artist by trade.
Idris Welcomes New Son Winston
In December of 2013 Idris said the children “need to be inspired by stories like Mandela’s.”
U2 and Anna Wintour, with Burberry and The Cinema Society, hosted a special screening of Idris’ film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom on Nov. 25 in NYC. It was there that HollywoodLife.com caught up to the actor.
“Children need to be inspired and need to hear the great stories of kings and the Mandelas of the world. Otherwise they will grow up and think, ‘Who is my hero?’ Mandela’s story isn’t that old,” Idris revealed to us exclusively.
Well now it looks like Idris will have some story telling of his own to do for the new addition to his family!
HollywoodLifers, let us know what you thought of Winston’s little hand grabbing his father!
