It’s not unusual to see famous couples in Hollywood with significant age disparities between them. The size and significance of these gaps might vary greatly from one instance to the next; other times, they make headlines because of how surprising they are. However, at the end of the day, what matters most in a relationship is love, as stated by a number of famous people who have discussed how their ages have not been a factor in the relationships they have with their older or younger partners.
British singer and songwriter Rita Ora is 32 years old and hails from the United Kingdom. Ora was just a little child when her Albanian parents relocated the family to London, England, in 1991. She was born on November 26, 1990, in Pristina, SFR Yugoslavia, although her parents are originally from Albania. There, she received her education in the performing arts, which seems to have paved the way for her future success.
Before she tried out for “Eurovision: Your Country Needs You” in 2008, she started her career as a performer in open mic events all across the city of London. Ora withdrew from the competition despite the fact that she had already qualified, but it was not the end of anyone’s exposure to her musical career.
Ora started her career as a musician not long after she had signed a recording contract with a record company. The song “R.I.P.” and the song “How We Do (Party)” are two of her most well-known works. In addition, she was a featured artist on the song “Hot Right Now” by DJ Fresh, and she collaborated with Calvin Harris on the song “I Will Never Let You Down.”
Ora dated Harris from 2013 to June 2014, after which she began seeing another artist, Andrew Watt, some years later. Their romance ended in June of that year. Despite this, she became the center of attention when she debuted her breathtaking emerald wedding ring shortly after her marriage to Taika Waititi in 2022. Waititi is a New Zealand director who is 15 years her older. Continue reading to find out more about the couple’s love journey.
Waititi was born in New Zealand on August 16, 1975, which makes him 47 years old at this point. Although he is most renowned for his work as a filmmaker, he has also shown talent as an actor and comedian. His films are what brought him the most recognition. “Boy,” which was released in 2010, “Hunt for the Wilderpeople,” which was released in 2016, and both of the superhero blockbusters “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Thor: Love and Thunder” are among the most renowned of his films. In addition to that, he is the proud recipient of a plethora of prizes, some of which include the Academy Award, the BAFTA Award, and the Grammy Award.
In terms of his private life, Waititi was in a relationship with the New Zealand actor and writer Loren Horseley for a period of ten years. Horseley is also an actress. However, he eventually settled down and tied the knot with another film producer from New Zealand, Chelsea Winstanley, in 2011. Together with her then-husband, she contributed to the production of “What We Do in the Shadows” and “Jojo Rabbit.”
Following the birth of their two kids together, the couple decided to end their relationship in 2018. However, Waititi did not lose up on the possibility of finding love and in 2021 he began a relationship with Ora. However, despite the fact that the couple sealed the knot not long after, in August of 2022, they did not publicly announce their marriage until January of 2023.
Ora discussed her marriage to her spouse, who is 15 years her senior, when making a visit on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in February 2023. She also made sure to display her gorgeous wedding ring during her interview on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
The interview was kicked off by the host, Jimmy Fallon, who said at the outset, “By the way, we have stuff to speak about. Congratulations, you must have just been married! Ora responded with an enthusiastic “Yes!”
Even though Ora was wearing a silver costume that was covered in glitter, the piece of jewelry that stole the show was her emerald wedding ring. Fallon had the good fortune to be one of the first persons Ora displayed her ring to in public after she had gotten it.
“I have never showed anybody else my ring before, but the reason why is because I love you so much. “You know, this is the very first time that I’ve shown somebody my ring,” Ora said. “So since I adore you, and for some strange reason, because we watch you every night, I feel like you’re a part of our relationship.”
Fallon made a lighthearted comment along the lines of, “I feel like I’m part of the connection as well.”
After that, Ora told Fallon that she would show him her ring, and then she gleefully said, “Look, here it is.” The singer extended her palm toward Fallon with a proud smile so that he could have a closer look at the stone she was wearing.
Fallon said, “Oh la la, that’s wonderful!” after taking in the scene. Ora proudly wore the enormous emerald stone that was set in a gold ring on one of her tattooed fingers, and it looked absolutely magnificent. When asked about her husband’s decision in the ring, Ora praised his performance, saying, “He did fine.” However, she did acknowledge that she had showed Waititi the exact ring that she wanted while they were at a store together before.
Ora said that she has released a new track titled “You Only Love Me,” and that she was also working on a new album that was scheduled to be out sometime in the year 2023. Even if it wasn’t the wedding of Ora’s dreams, she jokingly admitted in an Instagram post that the music that went along with the song had a wedding theme.
Despite this, the singer said that her life has “changed so significantly” over the previous few years and that she was “motivated by love” in creating her new music. She said that “making the choice to genuinely spend the rest of your life with someone is a sort of huge decision, you know?”
Ora continued by saying, “I feel as if this is more than just music; it’s almost like a time in my life for me.”
