Rita Ora gushes about Taika Waititi after wedding news: ‘I’m in love’

Rita Ora rarely provides insight into her relationship with rumored husband Taika Waititi – but recently she raved about the filmmaker.

The singer gushed about how “in love” she is with Waititi last week on an episode of the “Greatest Night Ever” podcast.

“[I’m] in love, very much in love. I’m in love, I’m in love,” Ora said in the September 20 interview. “Amen! I love love.

“I’ve always believed in it so much and I’ve always felt — I always wanted the fairy tale,” continued the 31-year-old songwriter.

She noted that her parents, who have been married for over 30 years, are her inspiration.

“For me, it’s always been about that love, finding a partner, so I’m really glad I did that,” Ora concluded. “I love Taika. Shout out to Taika.”

The actress’s comments come a month after news broke that she and 47-year-old “Our Flag Means Death” reportedly tied the knot in London in August.

While Ora has yet to confirm the marriage, she flashed what appeared to be a wedding ring in an August 8 Instagram photo.

Ora and the actor have been private about their romance since they were linked last year.

When photos of them — and Tessa Thompson — kissing in Sydney, Australia, went viral in May 2021, Waititi defended the cozy snaps.

“Is it that bad?” he asked. “No not really. I didn’t do anything wrong. It’s okay.”

Waititi was previously married to Chelsea Winstanley from 2011 to 2018.

The Oscar winner and Ora made their red carpet debut three months later at the “Suicide Squad” premiere, featuring the “Poison” singer glowing in an Azzi & Osta blazer dress. Waititi, for his part, wore a gray suit.

The duo reportedly got engaged in June of the following year.

The comedian has been previously married and divorced ex-wife Chelsea Winstanley in 2018. The former couple share daughters Te Hinekahu, 10, Matewa Kiritapu, 6.

As for Ora, she was previously in a relationship with DJ Calvin Harris and musician Andrew Watt.
