AceShowbiz - Idris Elba's now-mother-in-law feared her model daughter was making a huge mistake by moving to the U.K. after falling head over heels in love with the British actor.
At the time, the beauty had been preparing to study law, but she abandoned her plans in a bid to pursue her romance with Elba - much to her mum's disapproval.
She said, "I met this tornado of a man and fell crazy in love in just six months."
"After that, he went back to the U.K., we did a few months away from each other and it was awful. We couldn't be apart. So I said I'd come."
"My mother thought I was crazy but he's my soulmate."
The couple married in April, 2019 and Sabrina admits she's learned a lot since becoming a wife - particularly during the coronavirus lockdown.
"Marriage has taught me so much about myself, about patience and compassion," she shared. "Especially when you're locked down together. Every couple argues, but even the arguments feel more right, we're arguing about things of substance."
The marriage is Elba's third - he was previously wed to Hanne Norgaard, the mother of his daughter Isan, 18, while his second union to Sonya Nicole Hamlin lasted just four months.
The actor also shares six-year-old son Winston with his ex Naiyana Garth.
