Idris Elba Reveals Ex Duped Him into Thinking He Fathered a Child

Sep 20 2013, 7:07am CDT | by ABC News Radio

Amanda Edwards/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Idris Elba may play a detective on BBC America's Luther, but the actor had no idea a woman he was dating lied when she told him he had fathered a child with her.

The 41-year-old British actor reveals in the new issue of GQ that a woman he dated previously, Desiree Newberry, told him she was pregnant with his child.  It would've been the actor's first son.

Elba tells the magazine, “The celebration of having a son -- from a man’s perspective, it’s massive.”/>/>/>/>

But the celebration turned sour when others insinuated that the child may not have been his. 

“It wasn’t immediately obvious -- well, it was, because he didn’t look like me,” says Elba, adding, “But it wasn’t immediately obvious what had gone down.”

After a paternity test, Elba had to face the harsh truth: he wasn't the child's father.

"To be given that and then have it taken away so harshly, was like taking a full-on punch in the face: POW," he continues.

"You know, the truth is -- like, even admitting it, I’ll probably get laughed at for the rest of my life.  But it is just tragic, and it happened," he adds.  "It happened to me.  I moved on.  I’ve not been an angel in my life, either.  Do you know what I’m saying?  So to a certain extent, what goes around comes around."

Elba eventually had a child with his now ex-wife Kim, a daughter named Isan, in 2002./>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>
