Baby News For Idris Elba


God, celebrity baby news is just so boring, isn’t it? Like who really cares? That being said, Idris Elba welcomed a baby boy, and he posted a pretty damn cute photo:


He tweeted it along with, “My Son Winston Elba was born yesterday..Truly Amazing :-)”

Mom is girlfriend Naiyana Garth.

Fun fact: Idris Elba made People‘s Sexiest Man Alive list in 2013. So that baby’s got some good genes.

Congrats to the couple.

Idris Elba’s Asthma Attack Landed Him in the Hospital

It’s a bit of a slow weekend when you’re reporting on Idris Elba having an asthma attack, but let’s just go with it. Basically, he was on his way to South Africa to promote his Nelson Mandela biopic (which I didn’t even know was a thing) when he got on the plane, but he was removed and hospitalised before the flight actually took off.

From Sky News:

Idris Elba, who plays the former president in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, fell ill on a plane, but was taken off the aircraft before it left the UK.

The 41-year-old British actor missed a news conference in Johannesburg, but producers hope he will recover in time for a planned red carpet appearance on Sunday.

Elba, who is best known for his role as a detective chief inspector in the hit TV series Luther, stars alongside Skyfall actress Naomie Harris in the forthcoming film.

Damn, asthma! Unless it was something incredibly serious, though, he should be recovered in no time (and in fact he’s probably fine now) – hope so!

Liam Gallagher Got In A Fight With Idris Elba, I Guess

Today in “What The Hell Is This Story?” news, Liam Gallagher – one half of the crotchety asshole brother band Oasis – and The Wire star Idris Elba got into a fight over some stupid bullshit. Idris apparently messed up Liam’s hair, so Liam threw Idris’ hat across the room. Oh, and Liam has no idea who Idris even is. So there’s that.

From Absolute Radio (via DS):

Of the suggestion that he stole Elba’s hat, Gallagher said: “No, I didn’t. I don’t go grabbing anyone.

“He messed my f**king hair up, so I pulled his hat off and booted it across the room and that’s it… yeah, give a s**t.”

When DJ Pete Donaldson said that Elba was “gigantic”, Gallagher replied: “I don’t give a f**k. I didn’t know who he was.

“I still don’t know who he is and I don’t give a f**k who he is. You don’t touch a man’s hair cut, man.

“Especially if you’ve got a red bobbly hat on. It’s not f**king Crossroads is it? You know what I mean? So let’s get that one straight, he f**ked my hair up, so the hat got it.”

LOL, what? I don’t know, let’s all just sit and enjoy this.
