You probably heard the news over the weekend that actor and bae in your head, Idris Elba, proposed to girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre at a screening of his film, Yardie, in London:

It was a surprise to many, especially since the 45-year-old actor said in the past that he didn’t see himself marrying again. But alas, here we are:

Despite the fact that many of Elba’s fans are nursing broken hearts, a number are also excited for him. Dhowre has seemingly made him very happy, enough to make him go public with his relationship in ways that he has never done before. But no one is probably more ecstatic than Dhowre. The 29-year-old celebrated the good news on her Instagram and made it clear that she’s on cloud nine:

The actor and the former beauty queen, who was crowned Miss Vancouver in 2014, have been seeing each other since 2017. This will be the third marriage for Elba. He was previously married to makeup artist, Haane Norgaard, and they share 15-year-old daughter Isan. He also was wed to lawyer Sonya Hamlin for a short time. Elba shares a son named Winston with makeup artist Naiyana Garth, and the child is three.

The couple first stepped out together publicly at the premier of The Mountain Between Us back in September. In retrospect, Elba told PEOPLE it was quite the experience for the both of them.

“It definitely got noticed because I try to keep my personal life different, Elba said. “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.”
