It is not for everybody: Idris Elba on getting married again

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Idris Elba has had two failed marriages in the past and now the actor has no plans to tie the knot again.

The 44-year-old star was married to makeup artist Hanne Norgaard from 1999 to 2003. The two share 15-year-old daughter named Isan.


His second marriage, to real estate attorney Sonya Hamlin, ended six weeks after the pair exchanged vows in 2006. The actor also has a two-year-old son named Winston with girlfriend Naiyana Garth, reported Aceshowbiz.

"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," Elba said.

While marriage is a sensitive subject for Elba, he is enjoying his role as a father.

"Because I'm 44 years old with a two-and-a-half-year-old by, 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," he said.
