Taika Waititi’s Girlfriend in 2022: Sources Report That the Director Recently Got Engaged to His To-Be-Wife, Rita Ora; How Did They Meet? What Is His Relationship With Tessa Thompson?
Taika Waititi (@taikawaititi) and his girlfriend or to-be-wife, Rita Ora, could be walking down the aisle in the near future. According to The Sun, the pop diva and the film director recently got engaged in 2022, and are already planning their wedding. The couple just committed virtually simultaneously to one another and can't wait to start married life, planning an intimate low-key wedding in the near future as well as a shinier reception.
Waititi is now in production on a variety of films, including an untitled Star Wars picture, while his girlfriend Ora is also working on various film projects and serving as a coach on The Voice Australia. Despite the fact that they are both quite busy, the newly-engaged couple wants to marry as soon as their schedules allow. As some unknown sources told the outlet,
This isn’t about them doing a big showy thing and crowing about it beforehand. It’s just about them being in love and deciding the time is right to formalize their relationship. They couldn’t be happier.
Taika Waititi and his to-be wife, Ora, have been dating for around a year and a half, going public with their romance for the first time last year on the red carpet at the Suicide Squad premiere. While they've just been romantically linked for 18 months, the two have been friends for years. While the actual origins of their romance are unknown.
However, the singer revealed it four years previously in 2018 in an Instagram post on Valentine's Day 2022. She paid tribute to him on Instagram in February by posting a series of images of the two of them together captioning,
Us. 4 years ago. To now. thanks for being cool. And entertaining me forevs..Happy Valentine’s Day bestie.
Ora and Waititi sparked romance suspicions after the You for Me singer posted a selfie of herself and Waititi hugging on Instagram with a flirty caption:
Good times, memories, random things on my phone and the ones I love..❤️ #midweekupdate
A month after dating allegations began, Rita Ora and Taika Waititi were caught cuddling up with Thor: Love and Thunder actress Tessa Thompson outside of Waititi's Sydney house, engaging in PDA as they sat in front of a small table of beverages. Later, he responded to the viral photographs of them kissing in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald by saying,
I was doing nothing wrong. Not really. I think in the world of the internet, everything goes away pretty quick. And also, 'is it that big a deal?' No, not really. I was doing nothing wrong. It's fine.
The couple ignited marriage speculations after being caught in recent social media photographs with what appear to be matching gold wedding bands on their fingers, as captured by the Daily Mail. Shortly after, E! News announced that the couple had recently engaged in 2022.
However, the director has not yet conformed to any speculation, but we can only assume on the basis of the renowned sources. Or it all just may be the rumors as we suspected over social media. Anyway, we wish the couple a better life in the coming days as well as a successful career in the future.
