Idris has been married twice previously – to Hanne Norgaard and then to Sonya Nicole Hamlin.

He has a 17-year-old daughter, Isan, with Hanne, and a five-year-old son, Winston, from his relationship with ex Naiyana Garth.

Speaking about the moment he proposed, Idris said it was the “most nerve-wracking thing” he’s ever experienced.

But he overcame his nerves and kept it “pretty romantic”.

Opening up about his love for Sabrina, he said they have “good chemistry”, adding: “She makes me laugh and we share common goals.

“She makes me happy. She makes me celebrate my successes and when I’m not too sure about stuff, she makes me think.”

Idris and Sabrina’s nuptials will feature in British Vogue this July.

Earlier this year, the star had fans in a spin when he revealed plans to host hit US comedy show Saturday Night Live for the first time.
