Idris Elba has a new leading lady in his life. The UK actor showed up hand in hand with actress and model Sabrina Dhowre for the premiere of his latest flick The Mountain Between Us, where he announced that the two are now an item.
“This is Sabrina, my girlfriend,” he said to eTalk reporter Traci Melchor when asked about his date.
Dhowre, who is 29, also attended the premiere party for Elba’s flick Molly’s Game on Friday night. According to sources, the two have been dating for almost seven months, and Elba “feels strongly enough about Sabrina for them to be talked about in public.”
“Having her on his arm on a red carpet shows how serious he is about her as he doesn’t do these things lightly,” said the source. “He usually likes to keep that side of his life private but he’s proud to show Sabrina off on his arm.”
Dhowre is of Somalian descent and was crowned Miss Vancouver in 2014.
HipHollywood first spotted Elba with Dhowre, last month in Miami while he was promoting Dark Tower. The couple were later photographed taking a casual stroll through Manchester, England.
Elba was most recently in a relationship with make-up artist Naiyana Garth, the mother of his 3-year-old son Winston. The duo split last year.
As for future plans with his beauty queen GF, the Luther star has said recently that he doesn’t want to re-marry again. “Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so. Marriage is an institution of sorts, and I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody. It’s not my life’s calling.”
