Rita Ora Is Set to Change Her Name After Marrying Taika Waititi in a Secret Ceremony
Rita Ora has built quite a name for herself through her singing and acting pursuits.
For over a decade, Rita’s music has reached a worldwide audience, and since dating filmmaker Taika Waititi, she’s been in the spotlight more than ever before.
“It was a really intimate ceremony and super special for everyone there. Their nearest and dearest can see how madly in love they are,” they said.
“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,” the insider explained.
“A big, showbiz-style bash is planned to celebrate, but don’t expect to see it being flogged to the highest-bidding magazine.”
“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.”
After the news of the wedding broke, it’s been revealed that Rita will change her surname to Waititi-Ora, making her full name Rita Waititi-Ora.
Rita and Taika have known each other for years, but their relationship only turned romantic in 2021, after they worked together in Australia.
Taika was previously married to film producer Chelsea Winstanley, but they parted ways in 2018.
They share two daughters, Te Hinekāhu, 10, and Matewa Kiritapu, 6.
