As a superstar, Ora is no stranger to enjoying the finer side of life and living it big all by herself. However, it appears the "Let You Love Me" crooner, precisely, is kicking back and relaxing with her man this time around.

The lovebirds traveled to India for the summer holidays to spend quality time together. Ora took to Instagram to share with 16.1M followers a glimpse of all the beautiful places she visited and things she did while on the trip. 

The musician could be seen shopping around for a traditional sari and taking in the sight of Agra, including the Taj Mahal, with her film director beau. The loved-up couple also jetted about on a Tuk Tuk to make the most of their gateway. Ora captured all the exciting highlights.

She excitedly said to the camera, "Come with us on a couple of days of me and him in India." The "R.I.P" hitmaker later turned the camera to show Taika, who jokingly scowled at the camera, making his wife laugh hysterically. During a segment, as they visited the astonishing Taj Mahal, the doting wife said, "We are here live!." Ora's caption read:

"Celebrating my fans charting my new album You & I in the UK top ten in one of the most incredible countries I've ever been to ??Forever grateful to all of you who allow me to live this dream each and every day  ? IT'S THE TAJ MAHAL LIKE FOR REAL!!?!" ?."

The post was right there for fans to dote on, and they did effortlessly. Rita's hubby cheekily commented, "It's not "Live" if you post it two days later." "India looks good on youu," one fan stated, while another wrote, "Beautiful couple! Beautiful post! Enjoy! Keep making your music! Beautiful songs! [including multiple emojis]."

A third commentator praised, "[You guys] are so funny. I love this on so many levels as a south asian. Yes, the white sari!" While a fourth fan asked that she "make a longer video pls!!" adding, "You guys are hilarious and cute…"

The trip comes after the "Hot Right Now" artist revealed how the duo's friendship blossomed into romance. In February, she appeared on "The Drew Barrymore Show," which was previewed on the program's YouTube page. In the footage, the R&B singer spilled the tea about her relationship with Waititi. In Ora's words:

"I got married! I can't believe I can say it…I loved the whole experience. But I kept it super private for a little bit, just kept it to myself. It's nice to share it and be sort of open about it. Feels great."

Reminiscing about the magical moment they took their romance to the next level, the "Poison" hitmaker said: "I mean, honestly, he put his hand on my back and then…low back. And that's when I knew this is a different type of stroke, you know? And I was in. I mean, honestly, it's a really cool dynamic, and we both kind of do our own thing, and I'm very happy right now."

Rita Ora's Engagement Ring

A week before she turned heads with how their relationship evolved, the "Fifty Shades of Grey" actress gave fans a first-time view of her stunning engagement ring. Likewise, she made the big reveal on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." 

The "Grateful" artist looked elegant and ravishing in her attire. Her look was paired with black stilettos and minimal jewelry. And although she shone like a star, all eyes were focused on the giant gem on her ring finger.

Shortly after, the Glamour Award winner flashed her wedding ring and confessed to the host that she had never shown anyone the gorgeous emerald. "I actually have never shown anyone my ring. You know, it's my first time showing my ring," the entertainer said.

She mentioned choosing Fallon's late-night show to make the big reveal because of their special bond. "So because I love you and I feel like you're part of our relationship," Ora said, "weirdly cause we watch you every night—that creepy? I just felt like I'll show you it. Look, here it is."

Then the singer raised her left hand for a closer inspection, allowing viewers to gaze upon the luxurious jewelry. The ring had a large emerald stone at its center, surrounded by smaller diamonds on the side.
