Idris Elba is hoping its third time lucky as the twice-divorced actor has just got engaged to his girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre.
The 45-year-old actor popped the question to the 29-year-old model and former Miss Vancouver on stage ahead of a screening of his latest film Yardie. Elba got down on one knee just six months after he had insisted that he was never going to walk down the aisle for the third time. He told ESSENCE magazine in July 2017:
“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.”
The director gave a rare glimmer into his private life when he confessed falling in love while making a movie was ‘pretty special’ in recent months. He was filming The Mountain Between Us alongside Titanic’s Kate Winslet in Canada when he found himself smitten with beauty queen Sabrina. You can watch the proposal below.
