A hearty congrats to him.
Quentin Tarantino and wife Daniella Pick have welcomed their first child together.
The couple, who married in 2018, welcomed a baby boy yesterday in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
“Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are happy to announce the birth of their first child,” Tarantino’s rep said via a statement. “A baby boy born February 22, 2020.”
56 year old Tarantino and 36 year old Pick met in 2009 while the director was on press tour in Pick’s native Israel to promote his film, Inglourious Basterds.
They dated until 2012 before ending their relationship. A few years later, they rekindled their romance, with Tarantino proposing in 2017.
The couple marred on November 28, 2018 in a lavish ceremony in Los Angeles.
Tarantino recently told ABC News that he was planning to take a break from filmmaking to focus on fatherhood.
“I kind of feel this is the time for the third act, to just lean a little bit more into the literary, which would be good as a new father, as a new husband,” he said.
“I wouldn’t be grabbing my family and yanking them to Germany or Sri Lanka or wherever the next story takes place. I can be a little bit more of a homebody and become a little bit more of a man of letters.”
Tarantino’s latest directorial offering, Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood, received rave reviews from critics, as well as a decent number of Oscar nominations including those for Best Director and Best Picture.
Brad Pitt eventually walked away with the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in the film.
