Congratulations may be in order…

Idris Elba just made it official with girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre!

Third time’s the charm, maybe?

The 45-year-old just popped the question to his 29-year-old girlfriend, Sabrina Dhowre —who is the former Miss Vancouver 2014.The pair seem to have been dating around six months.

Idris screened his new movie, Yardie, at Rio Cinema in London and he decided to crank the romance up quite a bit by dropping to one knee, in front of the entire theater... just in time for Valentine's Day!  

Watch the clip below:

[Side-note: Take a look at the matching sneakers!]

The theater confirmed that she definitely said yes.

Guess he changed his mind. Last year, he told Essence that he wasn’t planning on walking down the aisle again.
"Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so. Yeah, 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."

(He married Hanne Norgaard in 1999, though they reportedly split four years later. They have a teenage daughter together named Isan. He later swapped "I Do"s with Naiyana Garth—the man sure loves makeup artists, huh?—with whom he shares a young son named Winston. That wrapped up in 2016, it seems.)

He even introduced Sabrina to the next King of England, Prince Charles, during the holiday season, so…yeah, it’s pretty serious.

Huge cheers to Idris & Sabrina!

He previously publicly gushed over his new love’s redecorating abilities, by the way!

He explained, "My girlfriend basically turned a room in the house into a studio... I'm not joking. For two months, she turned the whole place into a studio. It was really, really special — it touched me."

Ladies guess you can #cross #him off your #MCM list...... #IdrisElba and 29-year-old #East #African #beauty #SabrinaDhowre are #officially a #couple

The actor also opened up about his decision to start airing his personal life a bit, saying, "I just think when you're a public persona, it's OK to be who you are. But I don't think you need to overly flaunt it. But at the same time, when you're happy and you're in love and whatever that is... It's actually a really good, liberating feeling. Like, 'Yo, this is what I'm with' and blah, blah, blah..."
