Cape Town – Idris Elba is engaged to Sabrina Dhowre and man do they have a good proposal story.
The Dark Tower actor made a very public and romantic gesture when he got down on one knee in front of a full audience at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of his feature film directorial debut, Yardie.
In a video shared on Twitter the 45-year-old can be seen asking the 29-year-old beauty to be his wife. A reaction of cheers makes it obvious that Sabrina said yes.

The couple sparked dating rumours in October last year and have since made several public appearances together, including a visit to Buckingham Palace in December.
In an interview in the August 2017 issue of Essence magazine, Idris ruled out the possibility of marriage.
The DJ – who has been married and divorced twice – told the magazine: “Am I ever gonna get remarried? 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.”
