The singer insists she is head over heels with the filmmaker, 47, and hints she is planning another big wedding in London for her friends and family.

Pop star Rita who has never explicitly confirmed the marriage – although her close friends have, says she took inspiration from her parents – her mother Vera and her father Besnik – in her search for love after learning from their strong more than 30-year relationship.

She said on 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!

‘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.’

On her mum and dad, she added: ‘My parents have been together for over 30 years, so for me it was always about love and finding a partner and all that, so I’m really happy I did.

‘I made that choice. It made me happy and I love Taika. He’s so funny and lovely.’

It emerged Rita had married Taika Waititi in an intimate ceremony in London in August.  

At the time, the star was said to have changed her surname, meaning she will now be known as Mrs Waititi-Ora.

The hitmaker and the Thor: Love And Thunder director were both pictured with gold bands on their ring fingers in the days around their wedding – sparking speculation they had already tied the knot.

Rita and Taika started dating in March 2021, before going public with their romance that August.

The couple got engaged two before their August wedding, with sources claiming they were planning a huge party to celebrate their secret wedding with friends and family.

A source told The Sun at the time: ‘It was a really intimate ceremony and super special for everyone there. Their nearest and dearest can see how madly in love they are.

‘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’s already back in the studio working on her third album, with her latest session being with Ava Max and Noah Cyrus’ writer Rollo.’  

It was reported in June that the couple were to wed one another after almost simultaneously popping the question.

The British singer and the filmmaker were said to be planning an imminent, low-key ceremony abroad before celebrating with their fellow A-listers in a big London bash later this year.

It is understood that Rita, who is working on several films and The Voice Australia, and Taika, who is planning a string of movies, hope to tie the knot once their work commitments have wrapped up.

A friend told The Sun: ‘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 formalise their relationship. They couldn’t be happier.

‘They didn’t do a whole, ‘Will you marry me?’ thing and an Instagram post.

‘There’s no ring or big build-up. They just got closer and closer and eventually said to each other almost simultaneously, ‘I want to marry you.”  

In August, the couple, who began dating in March 2021 after meeting in Australia, were said to be moving so fast in their relationship they started discussing marriage, a source told New Idea.

‘Taika calls Rita ‘wifey’ all the time and chats about how he’s going to be her first and last husband,’ the insider said.

‘Everyone around them downplays it as flirty banter, but [Rita is] definitely hoping he’s for real,’ they continued, adding that she is ‘absolutely obsessed’ with him.

At the time, Rita had reportedly started joking about getting married in a ‘quick, hippy-dippy’ Californian ceremony, and then celebrating with a bigger party at a later date.

Taika was previously married to film producer Chelsea Winstanley, but the pair are believed to have quietly split in 2018.

The pair share two daughters: Te Hinekāhu, ten, and Matewa Kiritapu, six.
