Sabrina who started dating Idris in 2017 shared how her life has changed since. She said in part, “My life has changed in the past few years in ways I could never have imagined. It’s almost like I had to rediscover who I am and what I want to do. I feel like I’ve been reborn into a different person.
Sabrina shared that she still can’t get used to being recognised. She shared in part, “It’s so weird to be increasingly recognized. In Selfridges the other day, I literally had to pretend I didn’t know who ‘Sabrina’ was. I felt so bad because the girl kept mentioning how much I looked like Mrs Elba and I kept denying it. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it, especially as a lot of people don’t actually know my name, they just recognize my face from social media.”
She also shared that Idris’ constant affirmations and support have helped her deal with her newfound fame. “Idris is also super open and loves to give me compliments on how I look. He’s been great through this whole experience and he definitely wants me to feel comfortable and stand tall. Right before we go onto the red carpet, he’ll hold my hand and be very supportive. He always says how much he loves my lips too, and I think that’s probably why I increasingly love a red lip. When he says, ‘that looks so nice’, it makes me smile.”
