Ladies, it’s official. Pour out some liquor, or at least a glass of prosecco. The Daily Mail is reporting that Idris Elba is officially off the market and expecting a baby with girlfriend Naiyana Garth.

The 41-year-old actor was pictured getting cozy with the pregnant Naiyana at this week’s Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year awards at Claridge’s Hotel in London. And while this is the first time we’ve seen this pair out in public, they’ve apparently been a couple for the better part of 2013.

A told The Sun: ‘They’ve been together for a few months but it’s really ramped up recently. They get on brilliantly and she’s a real hit with his family and friends.

‘Idris is known as a ladies’ man but he’s really not at all. He’d rather have banter at the bar than spend all night grafting on women. Although he doesn’t have to try anyway, women flock to him.’

According to her website, Naiyana is ‘a London-based professional hair and make-up artist with extensive experience in Fashion, Film, special effects/prosthetics, Body Painting and Bridal.’

With Idris promoting Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, we expect we’ll see a lot more of these two on red carpets and out as she gets further along in the pregnancy.
Congrats Idris.
