Idris Elba and his daughter are lovers of nature. The actor shares with USA Today his adoration of trees and how he and Isan,11, hang out after midnight.
“I hug trees,” says Idris. “I’ve got a tree tattooed on my arm. My daughter and I, every New Year’s if we’re together, we go out at the stroke of midnight and we go sit by a tree and have a picnic and chat. It’s really good for highlighting that that was then and this is now.”
Although several news sources have reported his girlfriend, Naya, as being pregnant, Elba refuses to confirm or deny her expectancy. “You have to keep the mystery as much as you can. If I’m honest, in the future, I’ll be doing less press.” The star goes on to say, “Recently my private life is creeping into my work life and that annoys the (expletive) out of me. This is my work. My life is different.”
Isan is Idris Elba’s only child.
