Sad News: Idris Elba Is Engaged To His Beauty Queen Bae

He broke a major promise to his female fans.

Published February 10, 2018

Huge congratulations are in order for Idris Elba and his now fiancée Sabrina Dhowre, as new reports indicate that the two are now engaged to be married.

Though the Golden Globe Award winning actor wrote off marriage completely just six months ago following two divorces, it seems as he has now had a change of heart as he is recommitting to the institution for a third time.

Elba, 45, reportedly popped the question to the stunning Dhowre, 29, before a screening of his latest film Yardie at Rio cinema.

Rio Cinema shared the news of the engagement on their Twitter page:

Elba and Dhowre, who won Miss Vancouver in 2014, made their red carpet debut as an item back in September 2017. Despite going public with their romance just months ago, they were said to have been dating for several months prior.

The news may come as a shocker to many of his fans as he told Essence magazine in July 2017 that he would likely never marry again.

"Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don't think so," he said. "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."

It seems as the right woman changed his perspective.

Congratulations to the couple of their big news!
