you can call him Dad now

Taika Cohen and Taika Waititi, one and the same overachiever extraordinaire.

Taika is more open in terms of talking about his personal life, that's why I've decided to start this thread to mostly share his excitement about his baby. He keeps everything in balance, what is one of the reasons why I love this guy and let's do the same here,

which means,

- please, don't post any stalker-ish photos, just the ones Taika and his wife posed to and agreed the photo would be released to the public view,
- no gossips, just what Taika will say himself about his family, for eg. in interviews, updates in the kickstarter project etc.

The Forum Rule no. 3 regarding Bret's and Jemaine's personal lives still stands!

I hope you understand it's all from great respect we have to those guys and we don't want to do anything they wouldn't like to see.

So, without any further ado



This is the first time, when I heard he's got a wife. It was a tweet from Noriko, a woman who met Taika in Monaco in February.

Taika's wife is on the right. #love3#

Soon after that he started mentioning in different interviews he's going to be a father. And so in May,

" Hey everyone!
It's been quite a week but I can now confirm that I have an 8-day old baby. It's a human, of the female variety, and I couldn't be happier. Her name is Te Kainga o te Hinekāhu. It's long, but if you want you can call her Te Hinekāhu, or "Tupac: the Resurrection Hologram" for short"


And ends like this:
" ps. I will send this email TWO more times to remind you. Then I shall send only photos of my baby dressed as famous historical figures."

Girl, not Boy, for director dad

By Kathryn Powley
5:30 AM Sunday Jun 3, 2012

Director Taika Waititi is a proud new dad.

"I'm really loving it," he told the Herald on Sunday.

Los Angeles-based Waititi and his wife Chelsea Winstanley welcomed baby girl Te Hinekaahu into the world on May 20.

"Her full name is Te Kainga o Te Hinekaahu Waititi. That's a derivative of my great-grandmother's name," he said.

The Boy director has been joking with American friends that her name means "Resurrection of Tupac" or "Mazda RX7" after his dream car.

"I come from a big extended family, so it's very normal to be around babies for us, but when it's your own it's a very different experience for us. But so far it's quite easy falling into the role - it's come very easy for me. It just feels very natural."

He declined to share a picture of his daughter, but said she was "beautiful", and had a good personality and was a lot of fun.

The birth of the 3.4kg girl was without drama, and Winstanley was doing well.

"Everything's completely normal, which is what you want," he said.

Waititi said they'd decided to avoid the American tendency for a lot of medical intervention in birth and had chosen a birthing centre with facilities similar to New Zealand.

"We found a cool place that was more about natural, New Zealand styles."

Both sets of grandparents were currently visiting.

Waititi is preparing to shoot a US pilot of Super City with actor Madeleine Sami.

"Apart from that, we're just hanging out for the summer. We're just going to chill out and give this baby some sunlight."

The family-of-three hope to be back in New Zealand next month.

NZ Herald

Chelsea is a director and producer and now she's been helping Taika bring Jojo Rabbit into the world.
