It is understood that Rita, who is working on several films and The Voice Australia, and Taika, who is planning a series of films, hope to get married once their professional commitments are over.

A friend said The sun: ‘It’s not about them doing a big showy thing and singing ahead. It’s just about being in love and deciding that the time has come to formalize their relationship. They couldn’t be happier.

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

‘There is no ring or big accumulation. They just got closer and finally said to each other almost simultaneously, “I want to marry you.” ‘

In August, the couple, who started dating in March 2021 after meeting in Australia, are said to have moved on in their relationship so quickly that they started discussing marriage, a source told New Idea.

“Taika calls Rita ‘wife’ all the time and discusses how he’s going to be her first and last husband,” the insider shared.

“Everyone around them downplays it as a flirtatious joke, but [Rita is] really hoping he’s real,” they continued, adding that she’s “absolutely obsessed” with her handsome Thor director.

At the time, Rita allegedly started joking about getting married in a “quick and hippie” California ceremony and then celebrating with a bigger party at a later date.

Taika was previously married to film producer Chelsea Winstanley, but the couple reportedly quietly separated in 2018.

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

In February, Rita reflected on her relationship with Taika as she shared a gushing Valentine’s Day post.

The singer thanked the director for “being cool” by posting an unreleased throwback to the couple in 2018 – three years before their romance began.

Prior to Taika, Rita romanticized a string of big names, beginning with her pre-fame years.
