Idris Elba walked the red carpet with is very pregnant girlfriend Naiyana Garth at the 71st Annual Golden Globes last night. Even though the British actor will always be our chocolate thunder, we must admit that the lovebirds looked stunning together.
The Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom star wore a dark blue Gucci tux. (We were kind of disappointed he didn’t wear one of those bow ties that he recently joked turned him on!) And his lovely lady graced the event in a mother-to-be glow and black gown by British maternity-wear designer Tiffany Rose.
This was our first formal introduction to Naiyana, who reportedly started dating Elba last March. She tagged along with the him at Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year awards in London last November, but she had yet to make a debut among the eye candy’s die-hard American fans.
