Idris Elba Reveals He Had A Son And Later Found Out It Wasn’t His In GQ


Idris Elba is featured on the cover of the latest issue of GQ magazine.  Idris discussed about his kids on the magazine.  The actor had a daughter with his former wife Kim Elba.  He also revealed that he had a son but later on he found out that it was not his.


A few years ago, Idris was living together with Desiree Newberry.  The woman got pregnant and gave birth to Idris’ son.  The actor said:

“The celebration of having a son—from a man’s perspective, it’s massive.  “It wasn’t immediately obvious—well, it was, because he didn’t look like me.  But it wasn’t immediately obvious what had gone down.”

After Desiree had a paternity test, he discovered that the boy was not his.

“You know, the truth is—like, even admitting it, I’ll probably get laughed at for the rest of my life. But it is just tragic, and it happened.  But I wasn’t knocked out. I stood right the f–k back up, and I ain’t aiming to take another punch in the face ever again.”

“Do you understand what I’m saying? It happened to me. I moved on. I’ve not been an angel in my life, either—do you know what I’m saying? So to a certain extent, what goes around comes around. But for me in the future, I’m about being comfortable. That’s it.”
