Isan Elba

By Erickka Sy Savané

Ain’t nothing like an adoring dad, and when that dad is none other than sexy ass Idris Elba, well, we all gotta stand up and cheer- Go Daddy! Idris’s oldest daughter Isan, who has been a staple with dad on the red carpet since she was a little-itty-bitty-thang, recently turned 16 and dad posted her the sweetest instagram note EVER, and reminded us why they are one of the cutest daddy-daughter pairs we’ve seen in ages! Click the link for more photos of the two. You’re welcome:-)
