Idris Elba is engaged – after vowing he would never get married again!
The 45-year-old actor has got as engaged to stunning beauty queen girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre, 29, on Friday evening.
The romantic hunk popped the question on stage ahead of a screening of his latest film ‘Yardie’ at Rio cinema in London.
Rio cinema were quick to congratulate Idris and Sabrina on their engagement and the glamorous venue shared the couple’s happy news with their Twitter followers.
They posted: ‘Another @Riocinemafirst! Still 5 days to Valentines Day but @idriselba went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on stage this morning before a preview of his film #Yardie.’ (sic)
‘Yardie’ is a British crime thriller and is the actor’s directorial debut.
Talking about marriage Elba said last July: “Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so. Yeah, I don’t think so. Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody. It’s not my life’s calling.”
Idris and Dhowre, who won Miss Vancouver in 2014, made their red carpet debut as a couple in September 2017.
However, they had secretly been dating for seven months before going public.
The star has enjoyed a series of relationships in the past – before dating Dhowre he split with make-up artist Naiyana Garth, with whom he shares his three-year-old son Winston.
The ‘Luther’ star tied the knot with Hanne Norgaard in a romantic ceremony but their four-year marriage came to an end in 2003 with the couple having a teenage daughter Isan.
Elba also found love again with property lawyer Sonya Hamlin in 2006 but the exes went their separate ways for good shortly after.
