Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre at 42nd Toronto International Film Festival

Idris Elba's new fiancée Sabrina Dhowre flaunted her engagement to the 45-year-old actor on their first Valentine's Day together. Sabrina showed off her new engagement ring in a boastful Instagram post about their new life together.

The Thor: Ragnarok star got down on one knee and proposed to Sabrina onstage at the Rio Cinema in London.

The gushing bride-to-be shared an Instagram.com photo of herself and Idris holding hands at a restaurant table on Tuesday.

Sabrina captioned the image:

"Baby! I can’t tell you enough how happy you make me and how lucky I feel to have found a love like this, you make my heart feel so full. I love you. Forever will always feel to (sic) short. #imsuchacheeseball."

The 29-year-old part-time model and Idris dated for less than a year before he popped the question.

If there is any consolation to you heartbroken ladies, he has been married twice before and it's obvious he can't keep a woman for very long. So you still have a chance with him.

Idris has 2 children from his failed unions with women.

  • RespectSelf

    Well he must be a sucker for love. Wish the best for them, but I do think he should have waited just a lil longer to pop the question for the third time.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO SANDRA AND THE ROSES!

  • Benjamin

    She's gorgeous! Big congrats.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

  • pure_rachet

    I see Sandra’s still on one. I’m here for it.

  • pure_rachet

    Some idiot dude I haven’t met yet texted me at 3:30am. I told him it’s disrespectful and he’s older than me! So he texted me good morning like a creep at 4:30am. I told him lose my number! Wrong or right?

  • Dowoop

    The third time?!? Some men dont want to get married once never mind 3 times and so soon.

  • pure_rachet

    He looks haggard in every pic so what’s the surprise?

  • Dowoop

    So he waited 1 hr and txted back like that would make it any less creepier.

  • SpillyNillie

    Right...

  • Noirluv45

    Right.

  • Noirluv45

    U 2 Ms. V!

  • Bossy704

    Got to chat you up while the missus is still asleep

  • Vonn

    Right

  • You Could Never

    I had a fool like this. We had met...and it wasnt shit going remotely serious, nowhere NEAR...but he was texting and calling at the stupidest hours. Even After i said stop. Bc he worked crazy shift. Do not call me at 6am. And for God's sake do not keep calling when I don't answer. Be careful. Mine turned out to be a complete damn looney.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Well at least he didn't send you a dyck pic LOL or try to facetime with you asking if you wanna see him stroke it.. I get alot of random dudes that do that to me..Crazy thing is I don't have anything provocative on my FB page like titties out nothing sexual like I act here (cuz my family and church members are on my page lol) but yeah I have a dick pic catalog right now..

  • Rayne

    Keep the bangs hun! Almost thought her head was in an accident. Her head is Gina swollen. ?

  • Kanyade

    Can't get no righter. Disrespectful indeed!

  • WutizstillHERE!

    I am happy for her. At least he isn't afraid to make the jump like some men are. She has something he wants to cherish I say bravo..I pray it last..blessing and many years of love to them both..

  • Kanyade

    i had to look again because she looked like a different woman.

  • Rayne

    I looked twice too. She’s nice looking tho.

  • MistaO

    My dude?? C'mon man? Really, number 3? Naw man, just stay single and rich, most of these b itches can't be trusted anyways...

  • MistaO

    Right.

  • Dowoop

    What you do is grab the biggest knife you have then answer the Factime call and sit there with your knife.

  • NeverSurprised

    I would think that Idris would have chosen a woman with a better command of basic grammar, but if they are happy, God bless.

  • NeverSurprised

    Right.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Who hurt you?

  • Jen_no_juice

    I thought the same thing

  • Coy little wink

    Hurray for black lust...I mean love ??

    Congrats!!!!!!!

  • WutizstillHERE!
  • bashi

    Congratulations to her and him wishing them great success this time around of endless love and marriage

  • Quitedeliteful

    But why she gotta be a bitch, tho???

  • Blak

    They'll be done in a year, I;m not overly concerned

  • Quitedeliteful

    Now I know I'm being petty but he could have done better in the ring department. Seems kind of tiny...

  • mona q

    Yeah, can't help but think he is a serial cheater. Or has some other personality flaw but maybe she will be the one to tame him!

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    first thing i thought when i had to squint and then enlarge.

  • Quitedeliteful

    You were right. What in the tarnation, can only text when his wife is asleep or tryna work his way up to a booty-call kind of crap is this?!?!? He's a loser...

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!

  • bella28498 .

    Why do some black women hate so bad? This is why people should keep their relationships off of social media.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Damn near had to pull out a magnifying glass...

  • Nina Ross

    Congratulations!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Congrats to them.

  • Cannelle

    I was thinking the same...so we can be petty together.
    I almost didn't see it at first. You shouldn't have to break out an electron microscope to see a ring purchased by a celebrity like him, lol.

  • Explore

    From the look of it, most Black women are extremely hateful. If you're attractive, and appear to have every thing, you best believe they will come down on you.

    It's funny how when successful black men marry white women, black women get upset. But here you have a successful black man marrying a beautiful black Queen, and they're still complaining. Just beyond.

  • Bonita

    Marriage number 3. Idris, you ARE the common denominator.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Idris looks ran through. Congrats though!
    #PassAround

  • Noirluv45

    It isn't fair to generalize a whole group of people. Many of the comments here are positive, so to single out the ones that aren't kinda contradicts your statement about MOST Black women being hateful.

    People (including Black women) are entitled to their thoughts and comments even if they aren't what everyone wants to hear. I go on TMZ sometimes and read the comments, mainly by, I'm sure, White people, and talk about hateful. I said that to say that being "hateful" or opinionated isn't about color or race. JMO.

  • GOOD LUCK GIRL!

    Cute couple, good luck to them!

  • Explore

    Over all, you're right. But from experience, I feel like black women get more hate from other black women than any other. I myself take pride in everything that i've worked for, and have, but i've noticed I get hated on by black women more than any other because of what I have. And it's definitely disheartening.

  • It won’t last

    How can somebody be upset over a man they don’t know and seriously will NEVER meet? That’s insane. Idris fiancé is surely beautiful, but yes they probably won’t make it. He’s a male Halle Berry or JLo and would be called out for it if he was a woman.

  • Dahl

    I should NOT have to had to expand that pic and squint as much as I did just to see the diamond. Unless she is very modest, he should’ve done better. That said, congrats to them...

  • cherrypie

    I love Idris but he's a Hollywood Superstar...that ring should have been MUCH bigger. What's up with that?? Im just glad she is a sista. I dont think I've ever heard of him with a white woman. Also, that beard ages him.

  • ann

    What was boastful about her post? Well wishes to this couple, let their marriage endure.

  • Noirluv45

    I can respect your point of view and experiences. I do know many of us can be hard on one another. I've taken many punches from sisters, but I've also had to deal with the "smile in your face" White women too. In fact, White women say the same thing about other White women. I just hate that Black women are also judged by what a few do, you know? We get it from all sides.

  • Noirluv45

    It's definitely disheartening when we injure one another.

  • Explore

    I agree with everything, you're right.

  • Desiree Edwards

    BLACK LOVE!

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    Congratulations to them!

  • Liah

    He got too much damn money for me not to be able to see that diamond...Thats right I said it!

    Girl WE dont want his ASS !##KMICHELLE

  • Jorjapeach

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL....Stop!

  • hottlanta

    He is going on wife #3 he is unattractive to me now. All of that handsomeness and can't keep a wife. Dayum shame/

  • hottlanta

    You see he's been married several times so the excitement of buying ring is ho hum to him. I don't want to go ring shopping with me man and the jeweler says to him I see you are in here again. That is like trying to get your man excited about the birth of your first baby when he already has 9 kids. You think you are the special one and in the end you are just another one.

  • Applebootay

    I hope thats not the ring she bragging about but 15-16 year age difference. Hmmmmmmmm..I wish them all the best

  • Applebootay

    I think he could "keep" one if he wanted to. What he does is get them and throw them away....she's a lot younger them him so this may last.......longer than the others....lol

  • Applebootay

    THIS....just another one

  • Applebootay

    This made me chuckle real hard...because I scrolled back up and Yuuuuup.....ran through it is....

  • Applebootay

    and besides....I don't think they're "hating" on anything besides pointing out the obvious...he's a serial monogamous with different children by different women...these are facts....he has a negative history with "Black Queens" period

  • Applebootay

    but that's exactly why he chose her...think about it...

  • Applebootay

    Right.

  • hottlanta

    He might be 45 but his balls years are much older. Multiply 45 x 2 and you get 90 in ball years. It might be cute now but pretty soon her thought pattern about that will get old. I am 60 and I don't want a man 76. Then multiply 76 x 2 in ball years. My calculator would explode. No ma am.

  • Applebootay

    Hell to the nah nah nah....LOL....I gotta start using that math. My side snack is 8 years younger so I'm good for now....LOL

  • Noirluv45

    Exactly!

  • rachel

    My father was 20 years older than my mother. They had five biracial children and remained married until his death. He paid for us to attend college and at his death he left 100++ acres for his children. Age is just a number. Character is more important than age.

  • hottlanta

    Ole player move. He doing bed check. I don't play that. I have left many men on I-20 with that mess. Cheap azz could have gone through the McDonald's 24-hour drive through and got you a sausage/biscuit with some strawberry jelly.

  • rachel

    Love does not have a color.

  • hottlanta

    A younger man can leave the same legacy. I see some older men going from woman to woman to have somewhere to stay. Carrying all they have in the world in those 2 handle white Thank you please bags instead of a suitcase. Where the young one's got homes/planes/ car's and doing the dang gone thang. My mom talked about my grandfather/grandmother union where he was 20 years older and he treated her like she was a child. Alt of young men have character, don't leave them out and think that the only one's that have character looks like Frederick Douglass.

  • hottlanta

    You got you a snack and a young one. You betta say it. Glad to see women start loving the way they want to instead of the way society expects us to.

  • Applebootay

    I've been engaged, married, divorced, live in boyfriend, I've done it all....Now all I want is a snack and a nap. Thats it thats all.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!! I guess he's tired of spending a whole lot of money for diamonds and then the relationship doesn't last. If they make it to the ten year mark maybe he'll upgrade.

  • hottlanta

    People only say that when someone says black love. Yes it does. If love doesn't have a color why does all of the Kardashian have black men only. We all have a type and if your type is air and colorless that is your preference.

  • mona q

    When someone says Black Love it isn't taking anything away from any other love. It is simply celebrating BLACK LOVE because people and the media try to portray that we don't get married and that we are all in dysfunctional relationships. Anybody who takes offense or feels the need to correct someone for saying Black Love, is clearly part of the problem.

  • mona q

    Oh man...I say this all the time...to my kids, to my coworkers, to myself...lol...it's a good rule to live by.

  • SpiceGirl

    age isn't anything but a number....all about maturity IMHO.....(but let me be clear....im not speaking on prevy ways...a kid and adult type thing....consensual folks coming together)

  • mona q

    I thought about this too but then I realized that maybe they had already looked at rings and her style is not flashy for a big ring. Maybe the rings that she looked at were on the modest side so he purchased the engagement ring accordingly. My son's future wife is very modest and when we looked at rings, she wanted a rose gold little dainty thing with NO diamonds. All of her jewelry is dainty and romantic. Even though money is not an issue.

  • mona q

    he's looking nothing like the snack that he was in that Ebony magazine spread last year! He's getting old...but not gracefully...lol...I still loves me some him though.

  • mona q

    I think that it's when they have babies that he gets turned off....as long as she doesn't get pregnant, he should be good! SMDH

  • hottlanta

    Betta say it. My running buddy had me rolling last week. She sampled a snack and it was bad. So the snack kept calling her thinking that he was the man. She said she told me you are not THE dyck you was just A dyck. I had to stop running, catch my breath and laugh.

  • JRock

    Do you see the size of her 4head? This chick looks Chris Brown crazy. And on what planet and which light years is Idris 45? Forty-five my ass. He was 45 20 years ago.

    Sort of on topic but not exactly on topic. I was in the Dollar Store last night buying snacks to take to visit a relative in a nursing home. Why were the shelves empty like it was Christmas? But this gave me the biggest laugh (not out loud - didn't want to get jumped). There were women in there buying 2 champagne glasses, bags of chocolate, paper table cloths getting ready to try to get some sex tonight on VD day (I meant that for those who share your man or woman with others). I was hollering on the inside. Two fake champagne glasses? It was too funny.

  • ???

    ???????
    Well said!

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Idris looks like he enjoys the chase. Once the chase is over... uh oh.

  • Renee26

    I'm still heartbroken...hurting BAD...my tall chocolate drink of bowlegged water is marrying that little girl BWAAAAAAAAAA

  • Renee26

    If that's the case he wouldn't propose

  • Ms.Vanilla

    I'm not even sure if he is aware. It's just my assessment. Of course I've never met the man so I don't know.

  • Renee26

    DEAD

  • hottlanta

    I know right. As if ole men make the best men and leave the young men alone. I see a lot of ole dogs everyday while the younger men handle their business. Tina Turner old man is over 10 years younger than her and he loves her to death and been with her a long time. I tell women all the time we have OPTIONS use them. There are lot of women 50/60 who don't date because they are waiting on Father Time to notice them when the younger man will treat them better. I am 60 and I don't know what is like to be with someone over 50 and I ain't trying to find out. Sick of other women trying to shame other women for dating younger men where they say nothing of men dating younger women.

  • Patty Anderson

    45......29. Idris ain't shat. (((FOLDS ARMS AND POUTS)))

  • Renee26

    Maybe he got that itty bitty ring as a test...is she with him for the money or nah...I would have FAILED that test LOL

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Proposing is part of the chase. I knew a guy like that. He didn't feel he actually had the girl until she said I do. Then he totally changed.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Really big diamonds look fake to me. I like the ring. I bet that ring cost a pretty penny and it flawless. Will cut glass, you, and me...lol

  • hottlanta

    Is that why men cheat. Once they chase marry you and at home with you everyday they go out and get another wife once they get bored and not chasing you like buying a new car.

  • primadutch

    I need her to figure out which homonym to use before she post messages...you are a semi-celebrity now, don't be out here sounding dumb...ijs.

  • NaeNae2015

    LOL!!

  • Liah

    True!

  • NaeNae2015

    OMG!!! I know a man like that!!! Chased this woman down, swept her off her feet, got engaged to her, moved her across country, got tired of her after a few months and said she was needy and had got fat (from him taking her out all the time!!) dumped her and has moved on to his next victim/conquest!!! I told my friend this is how people end up on "Snapped". You can't be playing with folks emotions!!

  • Bonita

    Either this young lady's parent(s) didn't have the discussion with her that you have with your kids about guys like this (there are women like this too, but this situation is an example for girls), or they did, and her excitement and infatuation with his celebrity coupled with being the "chosen one" is overriding her parent's advice.

  • Quitedeliteful

    It could very well be. Not everybody wants the Hope Diamond....

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Girl yeah ain't that bout a bytch. I'm surprised she DIDN'T snap. She left her home, family, and friends for his ninja azz and then he wanna flip.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    ??? but congrats

    Meanwhile K. Michelle is somewhere angry!

  • bashi

    Yes you right with the parents advise. However this could be the one for him. Everybody deserves a chance at love again. We human are not perfect at all. Some try once that’s their true love while others have try multiple times to get it right.

  • interestingconcept1

    lol! I always say add 7 years!

  • Mrs. ??????????

    I never understood the whole attraction to Idris. I think he's alright looking but nothing to fall out over.

    I can’t shes she’s screaming his name in her songs. Even in her latest able she STILL mentioned Idris. How many years has it been now?

  • Shanese

    He probably has simple taste or maybe it’s her preference. Either way Idris is engaged and that’s a big enough deal lol as long as that ring is real and not a ring pop

  • Shanese

    You think bowlegged men are cute too? ?

  • Shanese

    We add 7 years when it comes to Keyshia Ka’oir not telling the truth about her age

    He’s been watching black ink NY and been rehearsing the way ted and Walt always refer to women as bitches

  • suganspice68

    lol@old balls

  • CaramelDream

    Right he can't keep it in his pants . . . I predict a year.

  • Renee26

    YES! Bowed legs and pigeon toed...perfect flaws IMO

  • Renee26

    Nah, just with men who don't play games...a man needs to show he can afford to provide for his "family"...he got it and was extra petty to give her that pebble. UNLESS it was a family heirloom. He could have gotten a better ring IJS..my regular smegular friends have better rings and their spouses are far from famous or rich...Invest in your wife or another man will

  • interestingconcept1

    no they do not!!

  • Renee26

    Interesting...so it's not insulting that that little rock signifies what he thinks her worth is... looks like it was an afterthought

  • Applebootay

    Girrrrrrrllllll, my snack started out as a fake relationship 6 years ago......I put him on ice when I started a real relationship.......and when I on my celibate train....... I just take him off the shelf and dust him off when I need a snack....and it's so worth it if you know what I mean....

  • Shanese

    Crazy ?

  • Shanese

    Yep

  • Shanese

    I don’t think he even dated her. I think they were just having sex and hanging out and he didn’t want to anymore and that has left her heartbroken all these years

  • Shanese

    You lost me at pigeon toed I can’t lie

  • Queen B

    Exactly!!!

  • pure_rachet

    He he texted happy valentines around 6. I told him don't text anymore. Wtf thirst is real!!

  • pure_rachet

  • Quitedeliteful
