Quentin Tarantino and Wife Daniella Expecting First Child

The couple, who met in 2009, have been married since 2018.

Quentin Tarantino and his wife, actress/singer Daniella Pick, are expecting their first child, the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood director's rep told The Hollywood Reporter

Tarantino, 56, and Pick, 35, have been married since 2018. The Oscar-winning director met Daniella, who is the daughter of Israeli singer and songwriter Tzvika Pick, in 2009 amid his press tour for Inglourious Basterds. The pair got engaged in June 2017, after dating for about a year. According to People magazine, the couple's engagement party served as a Pulp Fiction cast reunion, with a guest list including Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman.

Tarantino and Daniella tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles in November 2018.

The wedding marked Tarantino's first marriage. Tarantino previously dated costume designer Courtney Hoffman. In a 2009 interview with GQ, Tarantino explained why he has never married or had children: "When I’m doing a movie, I’m not doing anything else. It’s all about the movie. I don’t have a wife. I don’t have a kid. Nothing can get in my way," he said. 

Just days before the wedding, Tarantino wrapped filming Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, which opened in North America last month and is approaching $200 million at the worldwide box office.

Sony's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood marked his ninth film, with Tarantino revealing that he would retire from filmmaking once he hit 10 movies or started a family.

Tarantino hinted at his hopes for starting a family during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last month. "I'm not saying I'll just disappear like J.D. Salinger...I just got married. I want to have kids." Tarantino also said that he would consider making TV projects which "could be really kind of cool."
