Idris Elba has had his fair share of ups and downs when it comes to relationships. Now, the actor says he’ll never get married ever again.
The Luther star told Essence, “Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don’t think so. Yeah, I don’t think so. Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I’ve done it. It’s not for everybody. It’s not my life’s calling.” Idris was married to Hanne Norgaard from 1999 to 2003, and Sonya Nicole Hamlin for six weeks in 2006, so the third time will definitely not be a charm for him.
However, two beautiful children came out of his relationships. Fatherhood is something Idris certainly takes pride in. He added, “I’m 44 years old with a two-and-a-half-year-old boy. I’m rolling around playing. And then I’m at a Drake concert with my teenage daughter. Having a young child now keeps me young, without a doubt.” Idris can also credit his youthfulness to his new docuseries Idris Elba: Fighter, which tracks his journey as he attempts to become a professional kick boxer in just one year.
Sorry ladies, but it looks like his mind is made up. But who knows what the future holds for Hollywood heart throb.
