The marriage of director Taika Waititi and singer-songwriter Rita Ora has finally been announced. Waititi and Ora are 15 years apart in age. On January 27, 2023, Ora confirmed the news on the UK’s Heart Breakfast, saying that she was releasing a new tune inspired by where she is in her life and was conscious that she would be questioned. She remarked that the wedding went off without a hitch and went on to say:
“It was precisely as I wanted it to be. It was really wonderful and amazing, just what I hoped. Sorry, it’s not really intriguing. We’ll have a large celebration one day.”
Taika Waititi and Rita Ora have been dating since 2021.
Taika Waititi and Rita Ora had known one other for a long time, and it was rumored in 2021 that the two were dating. Later, when Ora uploaded a photo of herself posing with Waititi, she sparked quite a stir. The two were photographed enjoying fun on a trip to Australia with Tessa Thompson. Waititi and Ora then made their first public appearance as a couple in 2021, at the premiere of The Suicide Squad. Ora also shared photos from Waititi’s 46th birthday party, where she delivered a cake for him.
They appeared on the Met Gala red carpet again in 2021, and the following year, Waititi said that he and Ora had been dating for a year. Waititi was seen carrying and adjusting Ora’s clothing at the Vanity Fair Oscar celebration in March 2022. They were seen together in England at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships finals. A few sites claimed that the couple secretly married in a private wedding ceremony, and Ora said that she is in love with Waititi when speaking on the podcast, Greatest Night Ever.
She went on,
“I’ve always desired the fairytale, that’s what I grew up enjoying. For me, it was always about finding love and a spouse, so I’m glad I did. Taika is my favorite character. “Thank you, Taika!”
Watiti and Ora co-hosted the MTV Europe Music Awards in November 2022, and they told Vogue that they were friends before starting a love relationship. As previously stated, the two are 15 years apart in age, with Ora being 32 and her husband being 47.
