The Toronto International Film Festival is almost at its end and Luther star Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre just made their relationship red carpet official! Now, fans want to know everything about his new leading lady and what they’re like as a couple. Keep reading if you want more details on Idris Elba’s new girlfriend. 

Who Is Sabrina Dhowre?

Sabrina Dhowre’s age is 29 and she’s 16 years younger than her Dark Tower star boyfriend. A model, Sabrina Dhowre is a former Miss Vancouver 2014 and is of Somali descent.

How Long Have They Been Dating?

According to The Sun, it’s believed that someone close to Dhowre said that the hot new couple have been dating for six months now.


The source said: “It’s believed Idris and Sabrina have been dating for around seven months. They’re having a great time getting to know each other and Idris 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,” the source continued.


“He usually likes to keep that side of his life private but he’s proud to show Sabrina off on his arm. It’s been a different story for Sabrina, who has uploaded several pictures of Idris to her Snapchat account.”

Are They Getting Married?

While it’s only been a short period of time before wedding venues can be picked, fans are already fitting the British actor’s new girlfriend for a wedding dress, but Elba already made it clear that he’s not doing that again.


“Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so,” Elba told Essence magazine. “Yeah, 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.”

The Mountain Between Us star was previously married to makeup artist Hanne Norgaard from 1993 to 2003 and they share a 15-year-old daughter named Isan. In 2006, he married Sonya Nicole Hamlin but they separated just after six weeks of marriage. Elba also has a two-year-old son named Winston from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Naiyana Garth. While many are hoping he will put a ring on Dhowre’s finger, there’s a good chance that they will never walk down the aisle together. But who knows, maybe he will pull a George Clooney  and surprise us all with a new wife and twins. For now, the new couple are taking things slow and enjoying each other’s company.
