Idris Elba and his girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre are engaged.

The 45-year-old actor popped the question on Saturday at Rio Cinema in London, before a screening of his big screen directorial debut Yardie.

Video of the proposal was shared by a moviegoer on Instagram too, showing Elba on one knee before standing and being embraced by Dhowre.

The two have been for less than a year. The engagement comes as something as a surprise, and not just because the relationship is still so new. Elba, who has been married twice before, said recently that he would probably never do it again.

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

Congratulations to Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre on their engagement 💍❤️
