Elba has been married three times: first to Hanne “Kim” Nørgaard (from 1999 to 2003) and then to Sonya Nicole Hamlin (for four months in 2006). He has two children: a daughter with Kim and a son with former girlfriend Naiyana Garth. Elba began a relationship with Somali-Canadian Sabrina Dhowre in early 2017. The couple became engaged on 10 February 2018, during a screening of his film Yardie at an East London cinema. They wed on 26 April 2019 in Marrakesh. Elba has stated he is spiritual but not religious. He is an avid Arsenal supporter. In 2015, as part of his Discovery Channel miniseries Idris Elba: No Limits, Elba broke the land speed record for the Pendine Sands “Flying Mile” course. The Prince’s Trust, a UK youth charity founded by Prince Charles in 1976, which Elba credits with helping begin his career, appointed him as their anti-crime ambassador in April 2009. He voiced support for a vote to remain in the European Union for the 2016 United Kingdom European Union membership referendum. On 16 March 2020, Elba said he had tested positive for COVID-19 amidst the pandemic. His wife, Sabrina Dhowre Elba, also tested positive for the virus. During his quarantine period, he noted that he has been suffering from asthma all his life, thus placing him in the high risk category of the disease. On 31 March, Elba announced both he and Sabrina had reached the fortnight quarantine period. Idrissa Akuna Elba was born on 6 September 1972 in the London Borough of Hackney, to Winston, a Sierra Leonean man who worked at the Ford Dagenham plant, and Eve, a Ghanaian woman. Elba’s parents were married in Sierra Leone and later moved to London. Elba was raised in Hackney and East Ham, and shortened his first name to “Idris” at school in Canning Town, where he first became involved in acting. He credits The Stage with giving him his first big break, having seen an advertisement for a play in it; he auditioned and met his first agent while performing in the role. In 1986, he began helping an uncle with his wedding DJ business; within a year, he had started his own DJ company with some of his friends. Elba left school in 1988 and won a place in the National Youth Music Theatre after a £1,500 Prince’s Trust grant. To support himself between roles in his early career, he worked in odd jobs including tyre-fitting, cold-calling, and night shifts at Ford Dagenham. He was working in nightclubs under the DJ nickname “Big Driis” during his adolescence, but began auditioning for television roles in his early twenties.
