If there's one universal truth in the world, it's that Rita Ora and Taika Waititi are made for each other. And ever since their relationship kicked off in the public eye, we've been besotted by every public appearance and ode they've made for one another.
Kicking off their relationship in 2018,, the pair first sparked romance rumours in April 2021 and to the world's surprise, walked the red carpet as a couple later that same year.
