Many fans were sad when news of Hollywood hottie Idris Elba tying the knot surfaced. The significant event happened on April 26, 2019, in Marrakesh. Idris and his girlfriend, Sabrina Dhowre, got married in a wonderful ceremony.

The couple looked happy and very much in love when they exchanged their vows during the beautiful ceremony.

Who is Sabrina Dhowre? The woman is famous in the pageantry world. Although many people don't know, Sabrina was a beauty queen. In 2014, the girl was crowned Miss Vancouver.

Idris and Sabrina met in 2017 when he was filming the movie 'The Mountain Between Us.' During the interview with PEOPLE Idris said:

"Falling in love while making a movie about falling in love is pretty special."

And yes, their love story was very special! It is the third marriage for Idris. He was previously married to Kim Norgaard and they have a girl named Isan. The actor also has a son with his former girlfriend, Naiyana Garth.

Back in 2017, during an interview with Essence Magazine, The Hollywood hottie said that he didn't think marriage was for him. But as we see now, the famous actor got another chance at love.

Fans reactions

However, not everyone was happy to hear such news. Some fans find the fact that there is a 16-year-gap between the actor and his special lady unfair.

A user @ Rikki Payne commented:

Isn't she 1/2 his age almost?

A user @Sam Antha wrote:

Oh wow . I didn’t realize how young she is . Not sure I can look at him the same now

A user @Penny Jane Crallan added:

"He's lovely but old and already got kids. You were my crush but not no more."

Sabrina and Idris seem to be happy together.

Age is just a number when we are talking about true love. Do you agree? And for Idris and Sabrina, we hope that is the case. We wish their love will only grow with time!
