Idris Elba, Girlfriend Naiyana Garth Expecting a Baby Together

Word on the wire is that Idris Elba is going to be a dad -- again! The British actor's girlfriend, Naiyana Garth, is pregnant with the couple's first child (Elba's second), sources confirm to Us Weekly.

Elba, perhaps best known for playing Stringer Bell in three seasons of HBO's acclaimed series The Wire, brought Garth as his date to a recent event in London. The two posed together at the Nov. 5 Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year awards, where Garth (a makeup artist, according to the Daily Mail) showed off a slight baby bump.

This will be the Luther star's second child. He also has a daughter, Isan, with ex-wife Dormowa Sherma.

A new baby isn't the only thing Elba has going for him, though. The Golden Globe winner has been generating lots of buzz with his new movie, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, about former South African president Nelson Mandela.

Speaking with Us Weekly at a Nov. 14 screening of the movie hosted by the Weinstein Company at New York City's Lincoln Center, the second-time dad-to-be and Thor: The Dark World star talked about the importance of living life one moment a time.

"It's important to be grounded, especially in a film like this, because you're playing a man that is grounded," he told Us. "And it's important to just enjoy the moments, you know what I mean? Enjoy it just for what it really is. I'm never going to have this moment again, and what good is it if I'm floating, if I'm floating in the air? I like to be where I am."
