Rita Ora is tipped to say “yes” to beau Taika Waititi over the Christmas period.

It’s been rumoured that the New Zealand filmmaker, 46, is ready to pop the question to the 31-year-old singer, with the beauty reportedly excited at the prospect of becoming engaged.

Rita travelled to Australia with the Thor director last month as they plan to spend their first Christmas together Down Under.

And it’s said that the happy couple are set to have more than just the festive period to celebrate.

Reports suggest that the Anywhere singer’s parents have even provided their blessing to Taika after meeting him in London.

A source told The Sun : ” Rita and Taika are head over heels.

“From what she says, he’s ‘the one’ for her. None of her mates would be surprised if he popped the question soon.”

The source continued: “Some people might see that as quite quick but they’ve barely spent a day apart since they got together.”

They labelled Taika a “grounding yet fun” presence in Rita’s life.

The pair officially became an item earlier this year after sparking dating rumours in April. They first met in February while Rita was in Australia filming a season of The Voice.

The couple made their red carpet debut in August as they attended the LA premiere of The Suicide Squad.

They were even discussing marriage in the summer with a source revealing Taika called Rita “wifey”.

The source told New Idea : “Everyone around them downplays it as flirty banter, but [Rita is] definitely hoping he’s for real.”

The duo are in Australia as Rita gets ready to film the next series of The Voice, in which she is one of the show’s coaches.

Taika is also said to be Down Under working on several upcoming films, including Thor: Love and Thunder, which is in post-production.

While Rita has never previously tied the knot, Taika was previously married to film producer Chelsea Winstanley. The pair are thought to have split in 2018.

Taika shares two daughters with his ex-wife; Te Hinekāhu and Matewa Kiritapu.

Some of Rita’s former flames include musicians James Arthur and Calvin Harris and reality TV star Rob Kardashian.

Before coupling up with Taika, the singer was dating French-Greek filmmaker Romain Gavras.

The pair had been dating for six months but the couple’s breakup reportedly came after the coronavirus lockdown forced them apart.

A source told The Sun at the time: “Rita and Romain have decided to end the romantic relationship for now due to the distance between them.

“But they will remain a close team. Sadly, with the lockdown restrictions, this is all just about them being apart from each other for so long, and now Rita’s work­ in Australia would have kept them apart.”
