Actor and heartthrob, Idris Elba, has gotten engaged to his girlfriend, model Sabrina Dhowre.
The 45-year-old got down on one knee at a movie theatre in London, before a preview screening of “Yardie”, which he directed.
The 29-year-old former Miss Vancouver burst into tears as she accepted Elba’s proposal, much to the delight of the audience, who clapped and cheered.
The pair have been dating for one year, and have kept their relationship largely private, only making their red carpet debut together in September 2017.
Elba appears to have had a change of heart about marriage, as he told a UK publication in July 2017 that it was unlikely he would ever remarry.
The actor has had a rocky romantic past, having been married and divorced twice before.
His second marriage, in 2006, lasted just four months. Elba also has two children, one from his first wife, and another a previous relationship which ended in early 2016.
