Idris Elba’s daughter screams in horror as her dad replaces Jeremy Allen White’s billboard

The former "Luther" star is dad to a 22-year-old daughter and a 9-year-old son.

Idris Elba’s fans may be thrilled to see his image replacing Jeremy Allen White's in a new Calvin Klein ad, but the actor's 22-year-old daughter, Isan Elba, isn't exactly happy about it.

Isan Elba posted a hilarious TikTok video that showed her pretending to scream in horror as she noticed her dad's fresh pic replacing White's on a billboard in New York City.

"I think this counts as an original experience..." she joked in her caption.

The younger Elba set her video to a 1964 song called “Hier Encore” —?which translates to "Just Yesterday"—? by French musician Charles Aznavour. (Bad Bunny recently sampled the same song on his 2023 song "Monaco.")

Isan Elba's followers got a kick out of her video even if they couldn't help but tease her about their crushes on her father.

"hate this for you babes but love this for us," one quipped.

"Your dad, our daddy," joked another.

Feeling less than thrilled about fans lusting over her dad is nothing new for Isan Elba.

When People magazine asked her in 2019 how she found out about her dad winning the publication's Sexiest Man Alive title the year before, she responded, “Actually, I was on Instagram. People (magazine) said, ‘Oh, we’re announcing the Sexiest Man Alive,’ and I was like, ‘Oh yes, can’t wait.’”

“I wake up in the morning and it's my dad," she added. "I was like, ‘This is not what I was expecting. This is not very fun.'"

Idris Elba welcomed his daughter with ex-wife?Hanne “Kim” N?rgaard in January 2002. The former "Wire" star, who tied the knot with Canadian model Sabrina Dhowre in 2019, is also dad to a son, Winston Elba, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Naiyana Garth.

“They’re a part of me,” the actor told People of his kids in 2017. “They are the reason I get up and do it.”

"When it’s a hard day and I think about bringing them up, I go, ‘Thank?you for existing?so I have a purpose,’" he added.

Read on to learn about Idris Elba's two children.
