We spotted these two months ago, but from the looks of things it’s getting serious.

According to Daily Mail reports:

British actor and hunk Idris Elba is now officially dating hair and make-up artist Naiyana Garth. The 41-year-old actor was pictured getting cozy with Naiyana at this week’s Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year awards at Claridge’s Hotel in London.

And despite the pair only just going public, a source close to the star said the couple have actually been together for several months. The source told The Sun: ‘They’ve been together for a few months but it’s really ramped up recently. They get on brilliantly and she’s a real hit with his family and friends.

‘Idris is known as a ladies’ man but he’s really not at all. He’d rather have banter at the bar than spend all night grafting on women. Although he doesn’t have to try anyway, women flock to him.’

Strangely, as soon as news broke of their romance Naiyana’s Twitter feed disappeared from the site while her personal web page,, is now listed as being ‘under construction’. It’s still listed on Google however, describing Naiyana as ‘a London-based professional hair and make-up artist with extensive experience in Fashion, Film, special effects/prosthetics, Body Painting and Bridal.’

With Idris now getting serious with Naiyana after dating for a few months, this could turn out to be the best time of his life.

After starring in two of the hottest TV series on TV, The Wire and Luther, he is now being tipped for an Oscar for his portrayal of Nelson Mandela in the new biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.

Best of luck to them, we are really rooting for him to finally get a son after he recently revealed he was tricked into thinking his girlfriend gave birth to his baby boy, but he found out it was another man’s child.

We can’t tell if Naiyana is knocked up or just a little thick… What do you think? Hit the flip to see an older photo of the pair to compare.
