A man who seems to be every woman’s favorite actor is officially off the market.
According to Essence Magazine and a whole host of other national, as well as international media sources, Idris Elba (pictured right) proposed to his girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre (pictured left) during a movie screening this weekend. The movie that was screened is called “Yardie” and it’s where Elba, 45, makes his directorial debut.
During the Saturday (February 10) movie screening, which occurred at the Rio Cinema in the Dalston district of East London, Elba got down on one knee the traditional way and asked for Dhowre’s hand in marriage right on stage. The Rio Cinema’s Twitter page announced the big news live on location as it happened.
“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,” the theater’s tweet read. Dhowre, 29, met Elba last year on the set of the Canadian film “The Mountain Between Us.”
Dhowre is a real deal beauty queen from Canada who won the Miss Vancouver title in 2014. She’s probably the envy of almost every woman in the world now that she’s officially engaged to the black Pierce Bronson. But Elba stated as recently as last summer that he would likely not get married again.
“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,” Elba said to Essence Magazine in a cover story interview for the August 2017 issue. It definitely looks like somebody has changed his mind.
There’s always that one who comes along that you can’t see yourself living without…
