Idris Elba has been hard at work聽these past 12 months, taking over the big screen in films such as聽The Mountain Between Us聽and聽Thor: Ragnarok聽and making his directorial debut with聽Yardie (released on January 20). It seems he鈥檚 also been making big strides in the love department, as well, because the British actor has just gotten engaged!

The notoriously private 45-year-old shocked movie-goers at a screening of聽Yardie聽in London鈥檚聽Rio Cinema when he got onstage with his 29-year-old girlfriend, former Miss Vancouver Sabrina Dhowre, and openly professed his love for her for all to see, dropping down on one knee to pop the big question.

While reps for the actor have yet to confirm the news to outlets for People, Rio Cinema聽took to Twitter to confirm the exciting news, sharing a snap of the actor and writing, 鈥淎nother @riocinema first! Still five days to Valentines Day but @idriselba went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on stage this morning before a preview of his film #Yardie.鈥

Lucky for us, David Marsden, managing director of聽Sainou Talent Agency London, was in the audience and managed to capture the special moment on video, joking, 鈥淲hen you turn up to the聽#Yardie聽screening鈥 and the director聽@idriselba聽steals the show with a聽#marriageproposal.鈥

The clip聽shows the actor down on one knee as Dhowre bends over in shock before embracing her soon-to-be husband as the crowd roars its thunderous approval.

The newly engaged lovebirds met while Elba was on location in Canada shooting聽The Mountain Between Us聽with Kate Winslet. 鈥淔alling in love while making a movie about falling in love is pretty special,鈥 the actor told Peoplefollowing the pair鈥檚 red carpet debut at the Toronto International Film Festival last year.

The native Londoner聽was previously married to makeup artist Hanne Norgaard from 1999 to 2003, with whom he shares a 15-year-old daughter, Isan. He was briefly hitched to lawyer Sonya Hamlin n 2006, and welcomed a son, Winston, with then-girlfriend聽Naiyana Garth in 2014.

Congratulations to the actor and his bride-to-be!
