Idris Elba enjoys a romantic bike ride with fiancée Sabrina Dhowre in Hawaii
The actor was seen taking a break from filming 'Hobbs and Shaw' when he went for the bike ride with fiancee Sabrina Dhowre.
Two years ago if you were to ask Idris Elba about marriage his answer would have been, no. "It's not for everybody. It's not my life's calling," he had told Essence in an interview. A few months later, he was seen proposing Sabrina Dhowre in February. Seems like a lot has changed since then.
The 49-year-old actor was spotted looking smitten by his fiancee Sabrina Dhowre, 29, as they were seen enjoying a cozy bike ride during their Kauai getaway in Hawaii over the weekend. Grinning from ear-to-ear, the 'Luther' actor appeared in high spirits as he cycled along the idyllic island. Idris was seen taking time out from filming for his latest 'Hobbs and Shaw' when he went on the bike ride with Sabrina.
Idris saw Sabrina for the first time in her home country of Canada in 2017 and he became acquainted with the former Miss Vancouver on the sets of the film 'The Mountain Between Us.'
While speaking about the early days of their relationship, Idris told People magazine "Falling in love while making a movie about falling in love is pretty special." They also walked the red carpet together for the time at the 2017 edition of the 'Toronto International Film Festival' for the screening of the film 'Molly's Game' which Idris starred in. He said in the interview: "I think it’s an interesting space, especially for her. She’d never done a red carpet before and I tend not to do that. It was nice actually."
It was then in February 2018, during a screening for his film 'Yardie' that the actor asked Sabrina to marry him. Rio Cinema confirmed the actor's proposal on Twitter at the time, writing: "Another first! Still 5 days to Valentines Day but went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on stage this morning before a preview of his film."
Their relationship certainly seems to be flourishing as could be seen by Sabrina's message on New Year's: “This past year has been one of the best years of my life. I’ve grown and seen so much I feel like a completely different person. Thank you baby for everything you’ve done for me, I cannot wait for 2019.”
