Quentin Tarantino is set to become a father for the first time.
On Wednesday, the acclaimed filmmaker, 56, announced that he is expecting his first child with his wife Daniella Pick, 35.
In a statement released by a representative on their behalf, the couple said that they are thrilled to be starting a family just eight months after getting married.
“Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are very delighted to announce that they are expecting a baby,” the couple said in an exclusive statement to People.
Tarantino and Pick, who is the daughter of Israeli singer and songwriter Tzvika Pick, first met in 2009 while the director was promoting his Second World War film Inglorious Basterds.
The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood filmmaker proposed to Pick in June 2017 after a year of dating.
Tarantino and Pick then tied the knot in November 2018 during an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles.
For their nuptials, Danielle wore a traditional white dress with a matching coloured veil and tiara, while Tarantino opted for a classic black suit.
At a recent news conference, Tarantino spoke about married life, stating: “I can honestly say that my taking stock is different than it would have been three years ago, four years ago or even 10 years ago.
“I just got married six months ago … I’ve never done that before and now I know why. I was waiting for the perfect girl.”
