RITA Ora has revealed that she has frozen her eggs twice, calling it “the best thing I’ve ever done”.
The 31-year-old beauty, who found love with Oscar-winning director Taika Waititi earlier this year, said she wants a big family.
The pop star, 31, first frozen her eggs at the age of 24 before having the procedure again three years later on the advice of her doctor.
Talk to Independence, She said: “I think as women, we put that pressure on ourselves, subconsciously, because we feel it’s our duty – to create and to give life. So I do. I just wanted to not have to worry about it. And I didn’t, and it was the best thing I’ve ever done.”
Her relationship is arguably the most famous love story of the year.
She and Marvel director Taika have looked inseparable since going public and have been pictured in a series of premieres.
The famous couple enjoy the three-way kiss with actress Tessa Thompson on a balcony in Australia – which Taika despised as ‘nothing’ a few days later.
Rita said of their romance: “I wasn’t expecting to find love in Australia, nor was I looking for it.”
While they don’t mind being out in the public eye, Rita said she wants to keep part of the relationship just for them.
“I think to protect something that you really care about, you have to feel a little bit of privacy,” she said. “I wouldn’t have known it if I hadn’t been through what I’ve been through in the past.”
Rita introduced 46-year-old Kiwi to her family in November, showing the romance was more than explosive.
The duo have barely been apart in recent months, as Taiki joined the singer at red carpet events including the 2021 MTV Europe Music Awards in Hungary.
Meanwhile earlier this week, Rita released her new single “Follow Me”, featuring Dutch DJ Sam Feldt.
In a conversation with The Sun to coincide with its release, she said: “This song serves as a reminder to surround ourselves with the people who built us up and stayed by our side, especially especially in times when we feel like everything is falling apart. I can’t wait for fans to see the beautiful video we’ve made.”
Last month, Rita finished filming The Masked Singer UK and flew to the US to begin filming the music video for the track near her LA home.
Brushing off their time together, Sam added: “Working with Rita on this film was a dream come true. I’ve been a fan of her vocals and work for a long time – she’s a natural performer and absolutely nailed in the video.
He added: “It was a coincidence that we were both in LA for different reasons and we decided to go to the California desert to shoot the video. Like the song, it’s all about sticking with someone from thick to thin. ”
