Idris Elba is People's Sexiest Man Alive 2018, and no one is more excited than his fiancée, Sabrina Dhowre. The model took to Instagram on Tuesday to express her excitement for her fiancé's big win, sharing a photo of the magazine cover and writing in a caption, “That’s my hubby!!! Yaaaaasssssss 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 thanks @people but I already knew ☺️ #chocolateforthewin#lovewakinguptohisface."

Despite Dhowre calling the 46-year-old her "hubby," the two are reportedly not yet married.

The bride-to-be also shared a photo of her fiancé on her Instagram story, writing on the pic, "hot damn."

Elba, who popped the question in early February 2018, shared the sweet story behind his proposal in his interview with People. Originally, the actor planned to get down on one knee on Valentine's Day, but "that was going to be problematic." Instead, he decided to propose during the screening of the film he directed, Yardie. “It was a little spontaneous, if I’m honest,” he says. “I was at a cast and crew screening and among people I loved. We had all worked so hard for this project so I was like I’m doing it right now, here, today.” He also called the experience "the most nerve-wracking thing for me ever."He also called the experience "the most nerve-wracking thing for me ever."

The Luther actor said he was surprised to see how quickly the word spread about his engagement. “Yeah, I didn’t expect it to quite make British news and American news and Japanese news, for that matter,” Elba said. “It was quite a public affair. But it really wasn’t meant to be on the news.”

Elba explained how he knew that Dhowre was "the one" during his interview. The actor said that the two “have good chemistry. 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.”

And as for wedding planning, Elba already has one major request, per People: "I want about 19 deejays. There have to be, c’mon!”
