Rita Ora gushes over Taika Waititi after marriage news: ‘I’m in love’

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

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

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

“I’ve always been such a believer in it and I always felt like — I always wanted the fairy tale,” the songwriter, 31, continued.

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

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

The actress’ comments come one month after news broke that she and the “Our Flag Means Death” alum, 47, reportedly tied the knot in London in August.

While Ora has yet to confirm the marriage, she did flash what appeared to be a wedding ring in an Aug. 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 big a deal?” he asked. “No, not really. I was doing nothing wrong. It’s fine.”

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

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

The comedian has been married before, splitting from ex-wife Chelsea Winstanley in 2018. The former couple share daughters Te Hinekāhu, 10, Matewa Kiritapu, 6.

As for Ora, she previously dated DJ Calvin Harris and musician Andrew Watt.
