According to People, the 45-year-old British actor ("The Wire," "Luther," "The Dark Tower") and his American beauty queen fiancée met and fell in love while he was making the Kate Winslet romance "The Mountain Between Us." They've been spotted at various events since fall 2017.
Elba was married to makeup artist Hanne Norgaard from 1999 to 2003, and they share a daughter. He was also married to lawyer Sonya Hamlin for six months in 2006. He has a son with ex-girlfriend Naiyana Garth.
Since he had already been married twice before, Elba told Essence in July 2017 that he didn't think he'd get married again. "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."
Never say never! Congrats to both of them, and condolences to fans.
