Idris Elba Is Engaged To Girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre

Idris Elba has officially put a ring on it!

Other attendees of the event shared their congratulations on social media, one even capturing the proposal on camera.

It was a big night for Elba who was screening "Yardie", a film that marks his movie directorial debut.

The British actor, got down on one knee in front of colleagues at the premiere of his new film Yardie - and everyone in the audience cheered as she said yes.

Elba had previously ruled out getting married again, telling ESSENCE in August 2017, "Am I ever gonna get remarried?". Marriage is an institution of sorts. "It's not my life's calling", he said at the time.

The 42-year-old Luther actor has been dating beauty queen Sabrina, 29, since they met while Idris was filming The Mountain Between Us with Kate Winslet in Canada last year.

"Falling in love while making a movie about falling in love is pretty special", Elba told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle of Dhowre, back when he was promoting The Mountain Between Us. Sabrina, a former Miss Vancouver, will now become step-mum to Idris' daughter Isan, 15, and his three-year-old son Winston.
