A lie don’t care who tell it and a rumor don’t care who spreads it. Idris Elba took to social media on Monday to shut down reports he and his wife, Sabrina Elba, welcomed a baby boy.

The report was in heavy circulation on Monday morning with many popular blogs and outlets reporting it.

Idris tweeted his appreciation for the well wishes and congratulations, but he and his wife did not have a baby.

Sab @Sabrinadhowre and i thank you for all the congratulations but we haven’t had a baby.. .. that’s not true ?

Don’t believe everything you read. Stay safe. ?

Peep the tweet below:

I immediately raised an eyebrow considering both Idris and Sabrina tested positive for COVID-19 in March and made no mention of a pregnancy.

I’m sure when and/or if they welcome a child they will be more than happy to share the great news themselves.
