Before Taika Waititi tied the knot with Rita Ora, the “Thor: Love and Thunder” director was married to New Zealand film producer Chelsea Winstanley. Winstanley met Waititi in her 20s when she interviewed him for a documentary series, according to The New Zealand Herald. Years later, the stars reconnected while working on the 2010 film “Boy.” After falling in love, Waititi and Winstanley got married two years later and went on to welcome two daughters together. Over the course of their relationship, Waititi and Winstanley collaborated on films like “What We Do in the Shadows” and “Jojo Rabbit.” They were married for six years before they quietly split in 2018.
Although they’re no longer together, the two continue to coparent their kids, Te Hinekahu and Matewa Kiritapu. Waititi frequently posts photos of his daughters visiting him on the set of his projects on Instagram. In 2022, he even created an Instagram series with his kids called #DadsOnTour, which involved the trio visiting tourist spots in Waititi’s home country while vlogging and providing hilarious commentary.
