Who Is Idris Elba's Wife?

Idris Elba and Wife Sabrina Share Heartfelt Messages For Their 4-Year Wedding Anniversary

Idris Elba may be one of the internet's several husbands, but he's very much off the market. The "Luther: The Fallen Sun" star is married to model, activist, and beauty mogul Sabrina Dhowre Elba, having tied the knot in 2019. The couple recently celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary with heartfelt social media posts dedicated to each other.

On April 26, Elba shared a romantic photo of himself kissing his wife on the cheek as they enjoyed a private dinner on the beach. The table was covered with rose petals, and lanterns led the way to their table. "Happy Anniversary… You You," he captioned the post. His wife wasn't about to let the special day pass either. Dhowre Elba posted an Instagram video of them walking at dusk on the beach and running away from the waves. "Happy 4th anniversary baby, thank you for always helping me try to conquer my fears," she wrote as the caption.

Elba has been married twice before and has three children. The actor has an older son who prefers to remain out of the spotlight, and in 2002, he welcomed a daughter named Isan with ex-wife Hanne "Kim" Nørgaard, from whom he split in 2003. Elba then married American lawyer Sonya Nicole Hamlin in 2006, but the pair separated four months later. In 2014, he became a father to son Winston with former girlfriend Naiyana Garth, before meeting Dhowre Elba at a jazz bar in 2017.

Elba told Vogue in 2019 that it was love at first sight for both of them. "We've been literally inseparable since we met. Inseparable," he told the publication.
