The marriage lasted for four years, after which the couple parted ways. Both Hanne and Idris had a baby girl, who now aspires to be an actress like her father. Fortunately, Idris is very supportive of her daughter and takes her to various events involving the industry.

After his first divorce, the British actor got married to a lawyer Sonya Nicolle in 2006. The marriage was rumored to be a drunken mistake, which was evident from the fact that it was broken after just four months.

Years later, the actor was romantically involved with a hairstylist and makeup artist, Naiyana Garth. Although the couple remained unmarried, they still had a baby boy together. Regrettably, the couple got separated when Elba was accused of cheating by Garth.
