Rita Ora talks about love for director Taika Waititi as she confirms marriage

Pop star Rita Ora has sung the praises of love and marriage after secretly tying the knot with Taika Waititi earlier this summer.

The singer, 31, and the film director, 47, are now reportedly planning another big wedding in London for her friends and family after she confirmed their nuptials.

Rita told Jaime Winstone's Greatest Night Ever podcast: "I’m in love. I’m very much in love. I’m in love, I’m in love, amen!"

She added: "But I love love as well. I’ve always been such a believer in it and I’ve always felt like I always wanted the fairytale and that’s what I grew up loving."

It emerged Rita had married Taika in an intimate ceremony in London last month and was said to have changed her surname to become Mrs Waititi-Ora.

Rita and her hubby started dating in March 2021, before going public with their romance that August, with the Hot Right Now singer and the Thor: Love And Thunder director being pictured with gold rings in the days around their wedding.

A source told The Sun at the time: "Despite living in the spotlight, Rita is determined to keep the relationship as private as possible and didn't want to make a big song and dance about the wedding."

Rita, who is reportedly working on her third album, said that finding a partner was following the lead of her mum and dad, Vera and Besnik, who have been together for more than 30 years.

It was reported in June that the couple were to wed and planning a low-key ceremony abroad before celebrating with their fellow A-listers in a London bash.

The pair reportedly began dating in March 2021 after meeting in Australia, and were said to be moving so fast in their relationship they started discussing marriage, a source told the magazine New Idea.

The insider reportedly said: "Taika calls Rita 'wifey' all the time and chats about how he's going to be her first and last husband."

Taika was previously married to Chelsea Winstanley, a film producer, with whom he has two daughters, Te Hinekahu, 10, and Matewa Kiritapu, six.

Rita has been linked with a number of celebrity names, including the singer Bruno Mars, reality show star Rob Kardashian, the DJ Calvin Harris, musician Andrew Watt and designer Tommy Hilfiger's son Ricky, as well as rapper A$AP Rocky, actor Andrew Garfield and rocker Travis Barker.
