45-year-old Hollywood superstar actor, Idris Elba, who said marriage was off the cards just six months ago after two divorces, drifted from his decision as he proposed to his 29-year-old beauty Queen girlfriend, Sabrina Dhowre on Friday evening.
Idris Elba reportedly popped the ‘will you marry me’ question on stage, ahead of a screening of his latest film Yardie at Rio cinema.
Recall that in an interview with ESSENCE magazine in July 2017, Idris Elba said:
‘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 cinema’s official Twitter account shared a picture of Idris and wrote:
‘Another @riocinema first! 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.’
After one person responded: ‘Whaaaa @idriselba, but did she say yes?!!!’, the cinema replied: ‘She said yes and there was much clapping and cheering.’
MetroUK reported that the couple have been dating since last year after they met while Idris who has been married twice before – to Hanne ‘Kim’ Norgaard from 1999 until 2003, and to Sonya Nicole Hanklin in 2006, was filming ‘The Mountain Between Us’ in Canada.
Idris was first spotted looking cosy with Sabrina in Manchester in August month but reports suggest they have been secretly seeing each other for at least six months.
The relationship has very quickly moved to the next level and they went public with their love when they attended the premiere party for Idris’ new film Molly’s Game, at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Meanwhile, Sabrina has been busy plastering images of Idris across her Snapchat account, including a smiley shot showing the TV star looking very chic in a black suit, shirt and tie.
Sabrina was crowned Miss Vancouver in 2014. During the glitzy fashion event, she wowed the judges in a shimmering slate grey gown with a plunging neckline. Meanwhile her pageant other-half, Mr Vancouver, was awarded to Walt Yao.
