Idris Elba and pregnant girlfriend make rare public appearance
13 JANUARY 2014Idris Elba and his pregnant girlfriend Naiyana Garth hit the red carpet with some of Hollywood's biggest stars as they made a rare public appearance together at the Golden Globes.
The London-born actor and his makeup artist partner, who have been dating since March, looked blissfully happy as they cuddled up together, Idris placing a protective arm around his girlfriend as they posed for the world’s media.
The 41-year-old Luther star looked handsome in a blue three-piece suit and open white shirt. Naiyana dressed her blossoming bump in a plunging black gown by British maternity designer Tiffany Rose.
Idris was nominated at the awards for his leading role in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. He faced tough competition from Chiwetel Ejiofor for 12 Years a Slave, Tom Hanks for Captain Phillips, Robert Redford for All is Lost and Dallas Buyers Club actor Matthew McConaughey, who ended up winning the award.
Nevertheless, Idris is still hotly tipped to earn an Academy Award nomination for his portrayal of Nelson Mandela in the biographical film.
Idris and Naiyana announced they were expecting a baby together in November. The new arrival will be Idris’ second child – he has an 11-year-old daughter Isan from his marriage to Dormowa Sherman.
