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’s fiancee, Sabrina Dhowre, has now taken to Instagram today to gush over him.
She shared a photo of both of them together and wrote;
“Baby! I can’t tell you enough how happy you make me and how lucky I feel to have found a love like this, you make my heart feel so full. I love you. Forever will always feel to short. #imsuchacheeseball @idriselba” she wrote.
Idris Elba reportedly popped the ‘will you marry me’ question to Sabrina Dhowre on stage, ahead of a screening of his latest film Yardie at Rio cinema.
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.’
But during an interview with ESSENCE magazine in July 2017 when he wasn’t ready, 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.’
