2 minutes, 50 seconds Read

Sabrina Elba is toasting her milestone fifth wedding anniversary with husband Idris Elba!

The model and UN Goodwill Ambassador, 34, shared a cute clip of herself and the Golden Globe winner, 51, to Instagram on Saturday, April 27.

In the short-but-sweet video, which was soundtracked by Sofia Peters’ cover of Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know,” Sabrina and Idris could be seen smiling for the camera on a sunny day. Idris then gave her a wholesome hug from behind and planted a kiss on her cheek.

“To the love of my life, Happy Anniversary ❤️❤️❤️,” Sabrina captioned the video, jokingly adding, “We made it to 5 years sister wives!!!”

Their friends celebrated the milestone, too, including actress and musician Nandi Madida, who called the pair a “beautiful couple” in the post’s comment section.

Idris marked the milestone on Instagram a day prior, when he shared a video — full of fart jokes — for his 6.6 million followers to enjoy.

In the clip, Idris narrated in the style of a National Geographic commentator, explaining how “human beings find the sound of flatulence very funny,” as he filmed his wife in their home.

“Trying not to laugh is very difficult,” Idris said. “Sabrina has been married to her farty-pants husband for five years. She tries her hardest not to encourage him [farting] by laughing. She knows if she doesn’t keep a straight face, he will keep going … and going … and this behavior is true love. Her husband is a lucky motherf—–.”

During an April 17 episode of The Jennifer Hudson Show, Sabrina explained how half a decade of marriage “goes by so fast.”

“I can’t even believe it,” she said. “I feel like it was, like, yesterday. We’ve been together seven years now … that’s wild to me.”

She added that their wedding, which took place in April 2019 in Morocco, was “just the party you’ve always wanted, because everyone you love is there.”

“And you receive that energy from them, that love from them, when it’s people you love,” she said. “And it made it the best night ever.”

British Vogue first reported at the time that the couple, then newlyweds, tied the knot at the Ksar Char Bagh hotel in Marrakech, in what a source told PEOPLE in 2019 made for “a huge festive party with camels and fire dancers and dancing.”

In the years since, they have even began to work together, as Sabrina described the “big learning curve” of collaborating on their skincare brand S’ABLE Labs when speaking to PEOPLE in September.

“I think it’s having correct boundaries and understanding that like you know, finding work is not the same as finding a date night,” the skincare co-founder said. “There are appropriate avenues — work hours, for instance, that’s been a big learning curve for me.”

In 2022, the duo also detailed their first three years of marriage to PEOPLE, when Idris revealed that he doesn’t “want to count the years,” noting that “when you’re swimming, you don’t look up to count the laps, because you get tired very quickly.”

“You just want to be at peace together and have that be sort of a continuous motion,” he said.
