Recently, on their first wedding anniversary, Taika Waititi revealed how it was Ora who proposed to him. Said Waititi, in an interview with Vogue where the couple also shared never-before-seen images of their wedding party, "She proposed to me, and I said 'yes' instantly."

The two first met at a casual barbecue hosted by Waititi at his LA pad in 2018, but it was only three years later that they started dating. In the summer of 2022, Rita popped the question while on vacation in Palm Springs, and so they planned an impromptu wedding on August 4.

Waititi clarifies, "It wasn’t in London or in France like everyone reported. It was in LA with a small group of friends."

Fans were blown away by it all, but it was Ora's proposal everyone seemed to gush over as one Instagram user commented, "Just how it should be done - just the two of you and a small group of special people. No big show, no pleasing everyone else except for yourself. And even better Rita popped the question."

When some trolls tried to rain on Waititi and Ora's parade, many piped up in their defense, commenting, "I think women proposing to men is badass. I don't see the problem. Good for them!" Another chimed, "I love this ❤️also y’all in the comments need to check yourselves and stop relying on gender norms from the 50s."

Feel the love!
