Idris Elba Reveals How He Proposed To Fiancee Sabrina Dhowre


People’s Sexiest Man Alive was nervous proposing to the Luckiest Woman Alive, the mag reports. British Bae Idris Elba revealed how he popped the question to his Somali beauty, Sabrina Dhowre.

He described the moment as the “most nerve-wracking thing for me ever,” which is surprising considering this man acts, DJs and boxes.

Elba explained that that he originally planned to propose to his lady on Valentine’s Day, but his idea went awry. Instead, the 46-year-old opted to propose at the screening of his film, Yardie.

“It was a little spontaneous, if I’m honest,” he said. “I was at a cast and crew screening and among people I loved. We had all worked so hard for this project so I was like I’m doing it right now, here, today.”

Of course, the chocolate GOAT’s proposal hit the internet with a fury.

“Yeah, I didn’t expect it to quite make British news and American news and Japanese news, for that matter,” Elba says, laughing. “It was quite a public affair. But it really wasn’t meant to be on the news.”

“The Wire” star also gushed about how he knew Sabrina was the one, explaining they “have good chemistry. She makes me laugh and we share common goals. She makes me happy. She makes me celebrate my successes and when I’m not too sure about stuff, she makes me think.”

Sabrina is clearly just as smitten with her hubs to be, taking to IG to celebrate his “Sexiest Man Alive” status:
