Idris Elba Claims He Will Never Marry Again: 'It's Not My Life's Calling'

The actor has revealed that he is reluctant to get married again and wants to focus more on his role as a father to his children, Isan and Winston.

AceShowbiz - With his tight schedule as an actor, it is understandable that Idris Elba has little time for romance. However, the 44-year-old actor has shockingly revealed that he may never exchange vows again after previously going through two failed marriages.

"Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don't think so," he told ESSENCE magazine. "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."

"The Dark Tower" 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 2-year-old son named Winston with girlfriend Naiyana Garth.

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," he shared. "Having a young child now keeps me young, without a doubt."
