    Taika was born as Taika David Waititi on 16 August 1975 in New Zealand's North Island Raukokore. He grew up in the Aro Valley of Wellington surrounded by Maori culture and traditions. However, Taika regards himself as a devout Polynesian Jew.

    Taika is Married To Chelsea Winstanley

    When Taika met Chelsea Winstanley, she was already the mother of a boy named Maia. The two met while they were working on a comedy film Boy. Chelsea, an award-winning producer, and director had endured the horrible sexual abuse and went through its aftermath. 

    Although she had to insert a titanium rod in her leg, Chelsea challenged every obstacle and has risen above.

    The scars of Chelsea's sexual abuse might still haunt her but Taika is there to support her. He always tells her that her past childhood stuff doesn't matter at all. Therefore, Taika's wife always speaks of how he has helped to heal her emotionally.

    His Parents' Marital Life

    Taika's conjugal life might seem picture-perfect to the world but his mother was less fortunate. His mom Robin Cohen, a European descent school teacher ended her marriage with Taika's dad a bit earlier. 

    Taika was just a five-year-old naive kid when his parents divorced. After the separation, Robin had three jobs at a time to look after Taika and the expenses.

    Taika Waititi came above against his poverty-stricken childhood when he won 2020 Academy award for Jojo Rabbit:

    Taika once said that his late father was a gang member and was not so supportive of the family. He has joined the bike gang Satan's Slaves and was also the founding member of the gang. 

    Furthermore, Taika had grown into a poor childhood. He describes his dad's relationship with his mother -the weirdest coupling ever.
