One of the most sought after Black men in Hollywood is officially off the market–and for good reason. Actor Idris Elba wed the stunning Sabrina D’howre in a lavish affair in Morocco last month.

Despite the fame, the couple has miraculously kept their love story under wraps, keeping all the fans curious about their relationship as they bounced from one red carpet to the next throughout their courtship.

But now we are finally getting some real insight into how this pair met and fell in love.

“We’ve been literally inseparable since we met,” Elba told Edward Enninful in the cover story for the latest edition of British Vogue. 

Idris and Sabrina met in 2017 at a Vancouver, Canada jazz bar while the 47-year-old was on location shooting The Mountain Between Us. The two locked eyes and it was “love at first sight”.

The connection caught Idris off guard, who had sworn off forever love after two failed marriages.

“You know, I’m 47 this year, been married and lived a full life before I even met Sabrina,” he revealed. “It wasn’t something that I wanted to do, get married again. But…”

Clearly there is something super special about Sabrina that made the father of two reconsider his decision. To solidify their bond even more, Sabrina quickly became a crucial part of his tribe.

“Sabrina has deepened friendships with people I’ve known longer than [her], nurturing the best side of me to make me connect to my friends more,” he divulged.

On the road to their own “I do,” Elba and D’howre famously attended the nuptials of Megan Markle & Prince Harry.

“That was an incredible experience,” he said of the history making marriage.

“I was curating the music for that night, so it was a bit of pressure, but it was great. A vibe.”
