Idris Elba popped the big question at the perfect place: at the screening of his new film. The actor, 45, and his girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre, 29, were surrounded by friends and colleagues at a screening of his new film Yardie, according to multiple outlets.


Falling in love while making a movie about falling in love is pretty special.

Elba, who has previously been married and divorced twice, met his future wife in 2017 while filming The Mountain Between Us in Canada. Dhowre, who is a former Miss Vancouver, will now step into the role as step-mom to Elba's daughter Isan, 15, and his three-year-old son Winston. 


Congratulations to the happy couple.

Thank you @nba @miamiheat for the courtside love????
