Elba, perhaps best known for playing Stringer Bell in three seasons of HBO's acclaimed series "The Wire," brought Garth as his date to a recent event in London. The two posed together at the Nov. 5 Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year awards, where Garth (a makeup artist, according to the Daily Mail) showed off a slight baby bump.

This will be the Luther star's second child. He also has a daughter, Isan, with ex-wife Dormowa Sherma.

A new baby isn't the only thing Elba has going for him, though. The Golden Globe winner has been generating lots of buzz with his new movie, Mandela: "Long Walk to Freedom," about former South African president Nelson Mandela.

Speaking with Us Weekly at a Nov. 14 screening of the movie hosted by the Weinstein Company at New York City's Lincoln Center, the second-time dad-to-be and "Thor: The Dark World" star talked about the importance of living life one moment a time.

"It's important to be grounded, especially in a film like this, because you're playing a man that is grounded," he told Us. "And it's important to just enjoy the moments, you know what I mean? Enjoy it just for what it really is. I'm never going to have this moment again, and what good is it if I'm floating, if I'm floating in the air? I like to be where I am."
