Idris Elba is officially off the market!

Our forever heartthrob proposed to his girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre on Saturday ahead of a screening of his directorial debut, "Yardie", Metro UK reports. The Rio Cinema in Dalston, where it happened, also confirmed the news in a tweet.

"Another @riocinema first! Still 5 days to Valentines Day but @idriselba went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on stage this morning before a preview of his film #Yardie."

Elba, 42, and Dhowre, 29, have been dating since they met last year on the Canadian set of the movie, “The Mountain Between Us.”

But it was also only last year that Elba told ESSENCE Magazine that he would likely never remarry again.

“Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don't think so. Yeah, I don't think so,” he said in his August 2017 ESSENCE coverstory. “Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I've done it. It's not for everybody. It's not my life's calling.”

It looks like the former Miss Vancouver 2014 has changed the mind and melted the heart of one of the world's sexiest bachelors!

Congrats to the gorgeous couple!
