Taika Waititi and Rita Ora have arrived at the Met Gala and it's not just their beautiful outfits that are turning heads...

The couple was spotted looking loved up on the carpet, and having fun for the photographers with The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon.

The pair also had a quick stop on the carpet to talk to Vogue host Keke Palmer, where Waititi gushing about being Ora's date.

Ora wowed in a sparkly two-piece by Prada but it's the ring on her engagement finger making us double-take.

Earlier this month the pair had fans speculating Waititi had popped the question after Ora posted (then quickly deleted) an Instagram story of her left hand showing off a hot pink manicure with rings on her fingers.

But her ring finger was covered up with a flame emoji, sparking rumours she was hiding an engagement ring.

The couple first sparked rumours they were dating in April this year when Ora posted a series of photos of the pair on Instagram captioned: "Good times, memories, random things on my phone and the ones I love".

And after today's appearance, it's safe to say the rumour is only heating up! We ship it.
