Idris Elba is getting married!
The Luther star popped the question to his girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre in a rather brave way: in front of an audience.
As in, literally, an audience - Idris proposed to Sabrina at the screening of his directorial debut, Yardie.
Sharing this blissfully happy shot (left) on her Instagram page, Sabrina told her followers: "Baby! I can’t tell you enough how happy you make me and how lucky I feel to have found a love like this, you make my heart feel so full. I love you. Forever will always feel to short. #imsuchacheeseball @idriselba".
Happily for those of us who weren't invited to the premiere (the invite got lost in the post, we assume), the down-on-one-knee was captured on camera by various audience members. Watch the video below to see the proposal in full!
According to reports, Idris and Sabrina have been dating since early 2017 after meeting on the set of The Mountain Between Us.
Speaking previously to Essence magazine about his thoughts on marriage, Idris - who has been married twice previously - said: "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."
