“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,” the actor said on Twitter on Monday.

It was reported that Idris revealed the birth of a son while promoting his new film, Concrete Cowboy, at the Toronto International Film Festival recently.  

During the interview with ET Canada, he said: “It really resonates with me, I’m a father of two boys, and definitely I can’t wait for my youngest to see this film.”

Idris has two children from previous relationships: daughter Isan, 18, and son Winston, six.

In dispelling the reports, Idris made no mention of a pregnancy or plans for another child.

Idris and Sabrina tied the knot last year at a private ceremony in Morocco.

Earlier this year, the two were in the news after Idris tested positive for coronavirus. He was filming a movie in New Mexico at the time, and Sabrina travelled there to be by his side following diagnosis.
