Three times the charm? The Luther actor popped the question on stage ahead of a screening of his latest film Yardie at Rio cinema

It's official, Idris Elba is off the market for good.

The actor has reportedly popped the question to his girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre during a screening of his new film. In a major declaration of love, Elba proposed to Dhowre onstage at a London screening of his forthcoming movie, Yardie.

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

Idris, 42, and Sabrina, 29, have been together since a year ago when they met whilst Idris was filming "The Mountain Between Us" in Canada.

"She said yes and there was much clapping and cheering", they went on to say. Just months later, he talked with People's Jess Cagle about his relationship with the model, which began during the filming of his survival romance "The Mountain Between Us".

Elba and Dhowre, who won Miss Vancouver in 2014, made their red carpet debut as an item back in September 2017.

This will be Elba's third marriage following his 1999 marriage to Hanne "Kim" Norgaard from 1999 to 2003, and Sonya Nicole Hanklin in 2006. He has two children, a 15-year-old with his ex-wife Kim and a three-year-old son with ex-girlfriend Naiyana Garth.
