Idris Elba, 45, is engaged to his girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre, 29.

The actor was seen getting down on one knee to pop the question to the former Miss Vancouver at the screening of his film Yardie. This was shock to many since the actor claimed six months ago marriage was off the table. “Am I even gonna get married? 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,” Elba told Essence last year.
