Idris Elba and his girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre are engaged — or at least they appear to be.
The 45-year-old actor popped the question on Saturday at Rio Cinema in London, before a screening of his big screen directorial debut Yardie.
“‘Another @riocinema first! Still 5 days to Valentine’s 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,” a tweet from Rio Cinema’s official Twitter account read on Saturday, along with a selfie of Elba.
Video of the proposal was shared by a moviegoer on Instagram too, showing Elba on one knee before standing and being embraced by Dhowre.
“When you turn up to the #Yardie screening with @sainoutalent clients’ @adnanmust & @akin.gazi and the director @idriselba steals the show with a #marriageproposal,” Sainou managing director and agent David Marsden wrote in the video’s caption. “#congratulations #love #marriage.”
Who is Sabrina Dhowre and how old is she?
Sabrina Dhowre is an American actress and model.
She is aged 29 – which makes her 16 years younger than her actor lover Idris. Sizzling brunette Sabrina, who is of Somali descent, has made her name as a beauty queen yet she may now become known to a host of UK-based fans as the Luther star’s other half.
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.
Idris was first spotted looking cosy with Sabrina in Manchester in August 2017 but reports suggest they have been secretly seeing each other since March.
The relationship quickly moved to the next level and they went public with their love when they attended the premiere party for Idris’ film Molly’s Game, at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Meanwhile, Sabrina plastered 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.
