Engaged! Idris Elba Pops the Question at Movie Screening

VALENTINE'S Day came early for Idris Elba, who proposed to his girlfriend of less than a year, Sabrina Dhowre, during a screening for his new film Yardie.

This will be Idris Elba's third marriage.

The couple met and began dating while Ebla was making his 2017 film The Mountain Between Us. The engagement comes as something as a surprise, and not just because the relationship is still so new. The actor is seen bending down on one knee in the video, before excitedly getting up to hug his clearly shocked fiancee.

He was married to Hanne Norgaard from 1999 to 2003, and Sonya Nicole Hamlin for six weeks in 2006.

The engagement comes as a slight surprise for fans given that past year Idris swore he was never getting married again, especially after divorcing twice, as Bossip pointed out.

He said at the time: "Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don't think so", he told Essence. Yeah, I don't think so. He told Essence a year ago that he didn't expect to tie the knot again, calling marriage "an institution of sorts". It's not for everybody. It definitely got noticed because I try to keep my personal life different.

His latest project, Yardie, is set in Jamaica and is an adaptation of Victor Headley's 1992 novel by the same name.
