Congratulations are in order for Taika Waititi and Rita Ora ...

Because the couple are reportedly engaged!

Daily Mail reports that the Kiwi filmmaker and the British singer are said to be planning a low-key, intimate ceremony somewhere abroad before throwing a bigger bash in London with all their A-lister friends later this year.

A friend of the pair 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.

The source continued: "They didn't do a whole, 'Will you marry me?' thing and an Instagram post.

"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.' "

The friend noted there are "a few details to iron out" but the wedding ceremony is "coming soon".

Waititi and Ora have yet to comment on the rumours.

The all-star couple met in Australia and began dating in March 2021.

The Thor director was previously married to film producer Chelsea Winstanley and shares two daughters with her. The pair are believed to have quietly broken up in 2018.
