The two haven’t discussed their marriage—a small one, according to some reports. In an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show earlier this month, Rita referred to Taika as her “partner” and discussed their MTV EMA co-hosting event.
“It’s great to be doing something fun with someone who is, like, my favorite person,” she said. “We’re just the same people. It’s great to find someone you can have fun with and work with and respect and we respect each other’s work. It’s nice to have space, but also be together at the same time.”
Rita also tells about Taika and their relationship at The Greatest Night Ever podcast last September. She called the director a “beautiful” person, adding, in a singing voice, “I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love. Amen!”
The “Your Song” singer cited her parents’ decades-long marriage as inspiration, saying, “For me, it’s always been about that love, finding a partner, so I’m really happy that I did that.”
He added, “I love Taika. Shoutout to Taika!”
