Elba, who has been married twice before, told Essence magazine in July last year that he didn’t think he would get married again.
The award-winning actor from a Sierra Leone father and Ghanaian mother, replied the magazine:
“Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so,” he said. “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.”
Idris Elba previously dated makeup artist Naiyana Garth, with whom he shares 3-year-old son Winston. He also has a 16-year-old daughter, Isan, with his first wife Hanne Norgaard.
Congrats to the lovely couple! 💍💘🎉
