British actor Idris Elba has opened up about the “tragic” moment he realized  his ex-girlfriend’s child was not his own, insisting it was like taking “a punch  in the face.”

The actor was thrilled when he became a father for the second time in 2010  after his partner delivered a baby boy, and he gushed about the magical moment  of having a son online — but his joy was short-lived. He developed suspicions  about the paternity of the baby and underwent a DNA test, which determined he  was not the kid’s dad.

He tells GQ magazine, “It wasn’t immediately obvious — well, it was, because  he didn’t look like me. But it wasn’t immediately obvious what had gone down…

“To be given that (news that he was the boy’s dad) and then have it taken  away so harshly was like taking a full-on punch in the face: POW. You know, the  truth is, like, even admitting it, I’ll probably get laughed at for the rest of  my life. But it is just tragic, and it happened.

“But I wasn’t knocked out. I stood right the [expletive] back up, and I ain’t  aiming to take another punch in the face ever again. Do you understand what I’m  saying? It happened to me. I moved on.”

The 41-year-old has a daughter, named Isan, with his ex-wife,  Kim.
