It looks like Rita Ora is still in the honeymoon phase of her relationship with hubby Taika Waititi. The “You Only Love Me” singer recently confirmed her marriage to the “Thor: Love and Thunder” director, who has two children from a previous relationship, after sparking rumors of their nuptials in August 2022. She showed her emerald wedding ring during a Feb. 1 appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.”
While it’s unclear exactly when Ora and Waititi’s romance began, the two went public with their relationship in April 2021. Since then, they haven’t been shy about flaunting their love during appearances on the red carpet, award shows and social media posts. , although they still prefer to keep it out of the spotlight when they can.
Historically, the two have rarely spoken to each other in interviews — aside from Ora’s recent public revelations — and it even took Ora five months to affirm their marriage. But now it looks like they’re ready to share more details about their relationship.
During her Feb. 6 appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show,” Ora said of their marriage, “I can’t believe I can say this. It’s so interesting to me because I have loved the whole experience, but I kept it super private for a bit, just kept it to myself, so it’s nice to share it and be open about it. It’s awesome. “
The 32-year-old singer teased that she and Waititi, 47, met ‘long before we decided to screw it up’, revealing they had been friends for six years before their romance blossomed. According to Barrymore, the pair “reunited” later in life when Ora was working on “The Voice” in Australia and Waititi was working on her Marvel movie.
“I don’t even know how to explain. It all happened…” Ora said, gesturing as her hands clashed. “It really happened like that,” she added, snapping her fingers. “I mean, honestly, he put his hand on my back and then – in my lower back – and that’s when I knew it was a different type of stroke.”
