When news broke that Idris Elba is now happily engaged, someone on Twitter asked for thoughts and prayers 'during this difficult time.' Indeed, hearts around the world are broken; Fantasies of ending up in a relationship with the handsome thespian are now officially improbable. 

The Guerrilla actor is said to have proposed to girlfriend - former Miss Vancouver and actress Sabrina Dhowre - this past weekend.

According to The Independent UK, the 45-year-old actor stunned crowds when he suddenly went down on his knee during a movie screening in a Rio cinema in east London. Unsuspecting attendees of the screening of his directorial debut, Yardie, couldn't have been shocked as Sabrina, who reportedly said yes in front of the applauding audience.
