But when the entertainer is not stealing hearts on screen, he is working to improve his relationship with his beautiful wife by learning more about romance from his fellow Hollywood stars.

During the lovebirds' discussion with the news outlet, the MOBO Inspiration Award winner and the model announced that the second season of "Coupledom" would premiere on Thursday, May 19.

Like the previous season, the Audible podcast would feature some of the most famous and beloved couples in the entertainment business.

This season's guest list included the filmmakers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Pop goddess Rita Ora and her manager/sister Elena, and the Oscar-winning songwriter team Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.

Given the star-studded program, it was easy to think the Elbas being the show's hosts meant that the pair had all the secrets to a long-lasting relationship.

However, Sabrina pointed out that the podcast's goal was not to give advice but to freely speak about relationships and gain more knowledge.

As for what they have learned from their marriage, Sabrina confessed that their relationship did not start with the best teamwork. In her words,

"It's not 100 percent easy to work with someone you're in a relationship with. But I feel like we've definitely sort of found our way."

Her adoring husband added that the pair have learned to navigate through their disagreements, especially in "everyday squabbles," by not allowing their differences to overtake their love for each other.

The London native explained that never forgetting that their relationship was a journey to be cherished made things easier for the lovebirds.

Using swimming as a reference, the "No Good Deed" star pointed out that looking up to count the laps while swimming made the activity tedious and tiring

On the same note, the father-of-two did not count the years of his marriage despite being a fan of anniversaries.

Although the spouses had different opinions about maneuvering their relationship, the pair had one rule they always tried to follow after an argument. In Sabrina's words,

"Generally, if we have an argument, I don't like to go to bed angry, and I think he's the same. That's probably the one thing that we always try not to do."

That was not all! The fan-favorite couple also uses "childish humor" to keep things fun; Idris revealed that he loved making "fart noises" while his wife did "silly dances."

These pointers seemed to be working effectively for the partners, who recently celebrated their third wedding anniversary, which Sabrina noted marked six years since they have been together.

The "Molly's Game" star teased the launch of the couple's skincare company with a promotional video on Instagram featuring himself and Sabrina.

As for what drew the spouses' interest to the skincare world, the 2014 Ms. Vancouver title holder told sources that the idea came during the early stages of the pandemic.

According to Sabrina, the lovebirds felt disconnected from their community, which inspired them to create a luxurious but affordable wellness brand.

As stated on the skincare line's official website, the company promises to provide products that address issues like "hyperpigmentation and inflammation" to all beings, regardless of their gender, race, and age.

This genderless business idea also had personal merits for the Elbas, as Sabrina noted that bringing Idris into the skincare world has made them closer as a couple.
