The actor shared the exciting news, and a picture of the infant gripping his finger, with his Twitterfollowers. “My Son Winston Elba was born yesterday,” the 41-year-old “Luther” star wrote. He went on to described the birth as “truly amazing.”
We were first introduced to Idris’ lady love at the Golden Globes in January, where she made her debut among the eye candy’s die-hard American fans.
