If you are into crime drama TV series that actually talk about the world in a realistic way, you should watch The Wire.
And if you’ve already watched it, you might be familiar with the Stringer Bell character played by none other than Idris Elba.
This 50-year-old actor is also popular for being an R&B singer who even DJs as DJ Big Driis. Not to mention he is also a producer.
I mean, there is so much to talk about when it comes to all the accomplishments Idris Elba has made.
But I am not here to talk about him. I am actually going to tell you all about his youngest son Winston Elba.
Winston Elba Age and Bio
|Birthday||April 17, 2014|
|Birth Place||London, United Kingdom|
|Best Sign for Marriage||Leo|
Born on the 17th of April in the year 2014, Winston Elba was born in London, United Kingdom. So at the time of writing, he is 9 years of age and will celebrate his 10th birthday on the 17th of April in 2024.
The names of the mother and father of Winston are Idris Elba and Naiyana Garth. Idris is a famous English actor, rapper, songwriter, singer, and producer.
On the other hand, Winston’s mother, Naiyana Garth, is a professional British make-up artist in Hollywood.
And when Winston was born, Idris Elba tweeted about him with a photo of Winston holding Idris’s finger, captioning,
“My Son Winston Elba was born yesterday..Truly Amazing :-).”
The naming of Idris Elba’s youngest son was actually an emotional decision. Not too long ago before Winston was born, Idris’s father Winston Elba had died in 2013 in the month of September.
He used to be a businessman and later on had lung cancer, which is how he died. And Idris wanted to remember him by naming his son Winston.
And there is not much information on the young Winston of 9 because his parents keep him away from the public eye.
Winston Elba Parents
The parents of Winston, Idris and Naiyana, were in a relationship for about two and a half years from March 2013, and Naiyana gave birth to Winson Elba during that time.
When Naiyana was pregnant with Winston, both of them were really happy. At the time, a source had said,
“They had been keeping it quiet as it’s early in the pregnancy, but they’ve told family and friends and Naiyana is beginning to show. She is absolutely lovely and she’s looking radiant. Her and Idris are a great couple and feel lucky to have found each other. Obviously Idris is a bit of a TV heartthrob so Naiyana is the envy of women across the country. But the truth is Idris is the one who really considers himself the lucky one. He’s a great dad and she’ll be a brilliant mum. They can’t wait for their new arrival. Congrats!
And Idris talked to Cosmopolitan about being a father, saying,
“I love being a dad, its an important part of my life. As much as it’s nice to be busy and working, ultimately children don’t raise themselves. You’ve got to be there to help them and guide them through it. That’s one thing I try my very best to do.”
However, they separated in the year 2016 in the month of February. And Idris got married to Sabrina Dhowre Elba in 2019.
Winston Elba is the youngest son of the famous actor, rapper, songwriter, singer, DJ, and producer Idris Elba and Idris’s ex-girlfriend, a British make-up artist named Naiyana Garth.
