Taika Waititi Is Officially A Married Man With “Secretive” Wedding
The latest news is that the New Zealand director, Taika Waititi, is officially a married man with a secret wedding. The big day took place on June 4, 2019.
Taika Waititi is a New Zealand film director who has been making waves in Hollywood recently. In 2016, he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his debut feature, Boy. In 2018, he won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for Jojo Rabbit. But Waititi’s latest project, Jojo Rabbit, is a different kind of film altogether.
Taika Waititi has been married for less than a year now, and he hasn’t been sharing much about the nuptials with the world. However, a new interview with the director has shed some light on the secret wedding and the couple’s relationship. In a new interview with the New Zealand Herald, the director talked about the day and revealed that he and his wife got married at a private ceremony in New Zealand. “We had the wedding in New Zealand because we both have Kiwi passports, so it was the cheapest option,” Waititi told the publication. “It’s a small country and we’re both New Zealanders. We got married in a private ceremony in New Zealand, and we did the honeymoon in New Zealand.”
It’s official: Taika Waititi is now a married man. The New Zealand director was spotted getting hitched in New York City with his longtime girlfriend, Jemaine Clement, on July 4th. The pair was joined by Waititi’s close friend and collaborator Jemaine Clement as well as a slew of family members, including his mother, father, and brother. The ceremony was officiated by Waititi’s close friend and collaborator Jemaine Clement.
