Taika Waititi and Rita Ora have been head-over-heels for one another for over a year – and may now actually be husband and wife.
That’s according to eagle-eyed internet sleuths, who believe they have spotted an absolutely massive hint that the pair have tied the knot.
The couple began dating in March 2021, and made their red carpet debut that August as they cuddled up at the premiere of The Suicide Squad in Los Angeles.
Since then, they have supported each other’s careers, worn matching outfits and even attended the Oscars together.
(With Rita absolutely devastated she missed Will Smith slapping Chris Rock ‘because she was in the loo.’)
Now Taika has been seen sporting what looks suspiciously like a wedding band in a photo taken by Rita’s sister.
In an Instagram story snapped by Elena, Taika could be seen enjoying tropical sunshine, with a ring on his wedding finger.
And in another eyebrow-raising move, Rita shared the sap to her own story – but used a caption to cover up his hand.
The Thor: Love and Thunder director looked relaxed and happy in the snap, with a pair of white sunglasses, white summer shirt and shorts.
He looked off into the distance as he poured a glass of rosé into a wine glass.
The pair recently got glammed up together for the red carpet premiere of Taika’s new Thor sequel, looking blissfully in love as they walked hand-in-hand.
Taika was also joined by his two daughters Matewa Kiritapu and Te Hinekāhu, who he shares with his ex-wife, film producer Chelsea Winstanle, and proudly wrapped his arms around them.
While Rita and Taika initially kept their relationship on the low-down when they first got together, they have been more open about their romance in recent months, happily packing on the PDA in public.
Rumours had surfaced in June that the pair were set to tie the knot, with sources hinting they planned to have an intimate wedding ceremony for later this year, before they celebrate in London with a bigger bash.
A source shared with The Sun that the couple supposedly plan to wed once their current work commitments come to an end.
They said: ‘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,’ they added.
‘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.”‘
Metro.co.uk has reached out to reps for Rita and Taika for comment.
