From wingman to wife!
Sabrina Elba exclusively revealed her adorable love story with husband Idris Elba | on E! ‘s Just the Sip Podcast, hosted by Justin New Years Eve. During the July 21 episode, former Miss Vancouver contemplated meeting the People’s Sexiest Man Alive in Vancouver in 2018.
“We met in a jazz bar,” Sabrina admitted. “I’m in there and groove and vibrate and sing.” Idris first caught the attention of Sabrina’s birthday buddy, and Sabrina only turned to Idris for “wing-man” duties.
“I’m like no, sorry, this is wrong. I’m trying to be a good friend!” she joked about accepting Idris’ advances, but it all worked out in the end. “We had the best conversation. We talked all night, all of the next day. After that we were inseparable.”
Idris asked the question in February 2018 at the premiere of his film Yardie. The couple tied the knot in Marrakech, Morocco in April 2019.
