    WOW! Daddy’s little girl. She’s nicely dressed. His daughter is beautiful & seem extreemly polite & well mannered. She waves & smile @ the crowd with lovely grace. Idris Elba is a gorgeous black man whos masters his craft so well.

  • Sistergirl July 23, 2011 at 7:30 am

    He just has that Black man swag most women like.
    Confidient, Presence, and being nice looking helps, lol.
    His daughter is cute, I like seeing brothers with their kids.
    Someone made a comment about her hair. She has braids but she is showing her bands its a popular style overseas.

  • writer July 21, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Lol, 86 comments and not even the majority is about his daughter. I guess I will cosign lol. But she really does look like him.

    • Celeste July 21, 2011 at 11:39 pm

      Don’t fight it “writer”! Most of us agree that his daughter is a cute young lady.

  • FashionedbyGod33 July 21, 2011 at 10:53 pm

    I really enjoyed the exchanges ladies. Lol. It was a nice departure from the usual rhetoric. Even though, there is still some misunderstandings (no pun intended lol) around these parts. Much love.

    • FashionedbyGod33 July 21, 2011 at 10:55 pm

      Excuse me, replace *is* with *are*

    • Celeste July 21, 2011 at 11:37 pm

      And I just saw THAT scene with Driis from “The Big C” but this is a family blog, so let me just say that it’s been FUN. lolol

    • Misunderstood July 22, 2011 at 1:32 pm

      @Fashion don’t think I didn’t read between those lines lol

      • FashionedbyGod33 July 25, 2011 at 8:42 pm

        LOL @ Misunderstood. *winking*

  • XXXX July 21, 2011 at 8:58 am

    That’s funny. I though Idris was married to Atlanta based make-up artist Kim Elba. At least that’s who is paying child support to, unless there’s another Idris Elba.

    • Sherley July 21, 2011 at 10:45 am

      You might want to leave these parts hun, too many Mrs. Elbas in here for you to be playing with us.

    • Misunderstood July 21, 2011 at 11:41 am

      @XXXX If u haven’t read the earlier post my real name isn’t Kim and there isn’t another Idris get ur mind right that is my man!!
      Misunderstood Elba

      • Celeste July 21, 2011 at 2:08 pm

        Unless Kim is from Liberia and is named Dormowa Sherman she ain’t the ex-wife and he’s only been married ONCE. lol

        • Misunderstood July 21, 2011 at 4:32 pm

          Well hell my real name isn’t Dormowa Sherman either but it can be whatever he wants OWWWW! Celeste he wasn’t climbing BACK OFF boo

          • Celeste July 21, 2011 at 4:52 pm

            Hrrrmmphf. You tryin’ to act like you know but you really just mis-understanding what’s actually going on with me and DRIIS right now (including the climbing).

          • Misunderstood July 21, 2011 at 5:28 pm

            Lmao I’m dying over here I can’t take it

          • Celeste July 21, 2011 at 5:51 pm

            Tee hee! We climbing all over – coughs– just joshing. I do think he’s FOINE but I’m just happy that he’s stepping out/being a good father to his kid. That just makes my crush on him more intense though. sigh lol

          • Sherley July 21, 2011 at 5:55 pm

            Celeste trying to kill us from laughter so she can have him to herself. Don’t fall for it.

            *falls off chair dying of laughter*

            My son is looking at me & saying ‘is it that serious mom, it’s a blog.’ OMG!!!

          • Celeste July 21, 2011 at 6:49 pm

            I’m happy to oblige! I’m glad we had this time together, to unite and fight over Big Driis. He looks to be a doting father and that only makes my crush worse. Happy climbing y’all! :D

  • sassyboobabygurl July 21, 2011 at 8:12 am

    Beautiful little girl and a fionnne daddy!!!!

  • Celeste July 21, 2011 at 7:53 am

    Now that Sherley and I (and Idris) have cleared things up in here I can compliment him on keeping his beautiful little girl away from the red carpet until now when she’s about to become a pre-teen. I would hope that this has enabled her to be more down-to-earth and well-adjusted… but I could always give Idris a call to check in about that (Sherley!). lolol

    • Bingerville July 21, 2011 at 9:44 am

      Idris has been on the red carpet with his daughter many times before. This is not the first time. She is growing up beautifully.

      • Celeste July 21, 2011 at 2:09 pm

        Whatever! She’s pretty and the best in everything to her. lol

    • Sherley July 21, 2011 at 10:40 am

      A call huh? That better be all it is..a call. None of that climbing through the window mess.

      • Celeste July 21, 2011 at 2:07 pm

        Sherley, I’m not the one doing the climbing! lol

        • Sherley July 21, 2011 at 5:53 pm

          LMBO!!! :)

  • NickyAngel July 21, 2011 at 12:38 am

    Oh God there’s something about this man that gets me flustered :-) SEXY

  • Celeste July 20, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    By the way, Idris recently revealed publicly that he was done with marriage but on the phone he told me that there’s a special place in his heart for me!

    • Pisces July 20, 2011 at 9:57 pm

      Love your talk today, Celeste! So light, swwet and cute as you must apparently be!

      • Pisces July 20, 2011 at 9:59 pm

        * error, “sweet”…Freudian slip of “sweat” or “wet” from looking at Idris.

        • Celeste July 20, 2011 at 10:10 pm

          Bwahahaha HA at “swwet” like Alec Baldwin on SNL. =P

      • Pisces July 20, 2011 at 10:01 pm

        Oh, yeah, cute daughter, too, by the way.

    • Sherley July 20, 2011 at 10:31 pm

      Sorry Celeste, he thought he dialed me. He thought my name was spelled Cherley. lol

      • Pisces July 20, 2011 at 10:36 pm

        Haha! Girls , you are too much …I’m loving it! He is so fine!

      • Celeste July 21, 2011 at 6:56 am

        Sherley, how can that be when we (Idris and I) can see each other through our windows when we call one another? He often climbs out and comes over to visit like Omar Epps in Love and Basketball. So you are clearly mistaken! =P

        • Sherley July 21, 2011 at 10:39 am

          AWWW Hellll NAWWWW!!! I’m on my way to where you are. Car already left, just trying to catch up.

          • Misunderstood July 21, 2011 at 11:44 am

            Sherley I’m closer to Celeste I’m already here boo Idris says hi don’t waste ur time coming!!!!!!!

  • Celeste July 20, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Bah! He’s my neighbor and I haven’t seen nunyah around the way here in ATL. :D

    • Misunderstood July 20, 2011 at 8:43 pm

      @Celeste look out ur window I’m waving at cha lol

      • Celeste July 20, 2011 at 9:13 pm

        Ha! You better get out of here before we call the cops on you. lol

  • FashionedbyGod33 July 20, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    LOL. I had me a good laugh with all of the fun banter between the ladies in this thread. I love me some Idris too, but I don’t share PERIOD, so carry on ladies lol. Morris Chestnut is my first love anyway :).

    His daughter is a cutie. Didn’t know he was married twice. Only familiar with first wife Kim I mean, Misunderstood LMBO.

    • Misunderstood July 20, 2011 at 8:42 pm

      @FashionedbyGod33 and u know this I love me some Morris Chestnut too ooh I have me some picks lmao

      • FashionedbyGod33 July 20, 2011 at 8:59 pm

        @Misunderstood, I see you have your picks and they are starting to overlap into mines now lmbo. I’ll give you Shemar Moore okay? lol.

        • Misunderstood July 20, 2011 at 9:05 pm

          Ok u win I don’t want Shemar he is good looking but don’t care for the light skin brothers! I’ll stick to Idris and sneak with Morris every now and again lmbo

          • FashionedbyGod33 July 20, 2011 at 10:57 pm

            @Misunderstood, as I think about it it’s a good thing that you don’t want Shemar because I let my girlfriend have him a while backlol. I see though that you are still talking slick. Good luck with the sneaking around lol :).

          • Misunderstood July 20, 2011 at 11:02 pm

            @FashionbyGod33 we’re going to handle this once and for all! U have to stop being selfish as a child u was taught to share and Morris is worth sharing Misunderstood Chestnut it sounds wonderful lmboooooo

    • Sherley July 20, 2011 at 10:29 pm

      Hold up, how yall find out about my side man? Morris Chestnut will not be taken nor shared. Uh huh…I am swinging now.

      Taye Diggs is available, back up off my mens!!!!

      • FashionedbyGod33 July 20, 2011 at 10:59 pm

        Oh no Sherley, not you too. I love you like a sister but yeah, commence tha swingin’ because it’s on lol. This just don’t make sense. Have your Idris and go on now and how kind of you to offer Taye knowing darn well no one wants him lmbo.

        • Sherley July 21, 2011 at 10:44 am

          Poor Taye..I tried.

          I was happy with Idris & Morris as a side piece until all of you started claiming your slices. Being a nice woman, I’m offering to share but dang..yall being insatiable. ;)

      • Misunderstood July 20, 2011 at 11:04 pm

        Sherley I thought we had come to an agreement sharing is caring I’m not backing off ur mens!!!! Misunderstood Elba sounds good

        • Sherley July 21, 2011 at 10:44 am

          LMAO!! My side mouth & stomach are aching from all this laughter.

          I’m loving it.

  • juice July 20, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    His accent and body literally “kills” me…and i’m old enough for him at 21 so i will fight along LOL

  • PlainMean July 20, 2011 at 5:51 pm

    So Idris has been married twice? I didn’t know about this girl’s mom. I thought his only prior marriage was to Kim.

    • Misunderstood July 20, 2011 at 5:57 pm

      @Plain Mean my real name isn’t Kim lmao

      • PlainMean July 20, 2011 at 6:00 pm

        Lmbo! Well this man gets around! I had to find out about all of you other women on the internet. I think I might be able to forgive him! Lol.

      • Sherley July 20, 2011 at 6:07 pm

        LMAO!!! Msunderstood you have me falling over laughing right now.

        • Sherley July 20, 2011 at 10:38 pm

          It’s nice to have fun on a blog. It’s not always serious.
