“So, it really resonates with me, I’m a father of two boys, and definitely I can’t wait for my youngest to see this film,” Idris said. Elba, 48, also has an 18-year-old daughter named Isan and a six-year-old son named Winston, from previous relationships.
Elba and Dhowre first began dating around March 2017, and Elba popped the question at a London screening of his film Yardie back in February 2018. A year later, the couple made things official by tying the knot in Morocco.
Back in August, both Elba and Dhowre contracted COVID-19, as we previously reported. “At the time that we got sick, the media was pushing hard on how dangerous it was,’ Dhowre said. “At one point, Idris really thought that this could be the end,” she continued. “He has asthma. He is older. It was really scary.”
The pair survived the virus, but it changed the couple’s perspectives. “That kind of unsureness about what’s coming next leaves you with a bit of anxiety,” she said. “But having been sick and being okay also now gives you this new lease on life.”
