It follows reports that Rita and Taika were engaged and planning an imminent, low-key ceremony abroad before celebrating with their fellow A-listers in a big London bash later this year.

It comes after it was reported that Rita is set to tie the knot ‘imminently’ with her boyfriend Taika Waititi in a low-key ceremony after deciding they wanted to marry.   

A friend told The Sun: ‘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.   

It is understood that Rita, who is working on several films and The Voice Australia, and Taika, who is planning a string of movies, hope to tie the knot once their work commitments have wrapped up.

The pal added that there are ‘a few details to iron out’ but the nuptials are ‘coming soon’.

‘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.”

In August, the couple, who began dating in March 2021 after meeting in Australia, were said to be moving so fast in their relationship they started discussing marriage, a source told New Idea.

MailOnline contacted representatives for Rita and Taika for comment at the time.  

‘Everyone around them downplays it as flirty banter, but [Rita is] definitely hoping he’s for real,’ they continued, adding that she is ‘absolutely obsessed’ with her Thor director beau.  

‘Taika calls Rita ‘wifey’ all the time and chats about how he’s going to be her first and last husband,’ the insider said.

Taika was previously married to film producer Chelsea Winstanley, but the pair are believed to have quietly split in 2018.

At the time, Rita had reportedly started joking about getting married in a ‘quick, hippy-dippy’ Californian ceremony, and then celebrating with a bigger party at a later date.
