What a happy day for the pair! During a screening of his brand new movie Yardie, Idris Elba popped the big question to his significant other Sabrina Dhowre! Check out the details!
The Rio Cinema in London took to Twitter to confirm that Elba proposed to Dhowre during the screening.
‘Another @riocinema first! Still, five days to Valentine’s 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. She said yes, and there was a lot of clapping and cheering,’ the post read.
Even more, one audience member managed to capture the sweet moment on camera and took to Instagram to share it with all of the other fans.
The engaged couple’s relationship was made official back in September of last year.
They met for the first time while Idris was shooting The Mountain Between Us in Canada.
During an interview, the man stated about the beautiful relationship with the former Miss Vancouver and beautiful model that ‘Falling in love while filming a movie about falling in love’s pretty special.’ How sweet!
This will be Idris Elba’s third marriage.
From 1999 to 2003, he was married to Hanne ‘Kim’ Norgaard and to Sonya Nicole Hanklin back in 2006.
The actor is a father to 15 year old daughter Isan with Kim as well and three year old Winston with former girlfriend, Naiyana Garth.
Hopefully, this one is forever as they look super happy together.
Congratulations Idris and Sabrina!
