Daddy heaven! Idris Elba and his girlfriend Naiyana Garth have welcomed their first child, the actor revealed via Twitter on Friday, April 17. The couple welcomed baby boy Winston one day earlier.

"My Son Winston Elba was born yesterday..Truly Amazing," the 41-year-old wrote. Alongside the caption, the Luther star shared the first snapshot of the sweet bundle of joy. In the black and white photo, Winston is latching his little hand onto Elba's. The baby's face, however, is not seen.

Us first confirmed back in November 2013 that the British star and Garth were expecting their first child together. That same month, Garth showed off her growing baby bump while attending the Bazaar Women of the Year awards with the Mandela: Long Walk of Freedom actor in London on Nov. 5.

This is Elba's second child. He shares daughter Isan, 14.
