Quentin Tarantino and his wife Daniella Pick are set to welcome their second child together. Sources close to the pair confirmed the news to People and said the child is expected to arrive in the next few months.
The news comes nearly two years after the couple welcomed their first child, son Leo, in February 2020.
Tarantino previously opened up about his son during an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in June 2021. The director clarified that his child is not named after his Django Unchained and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio but after his wife’s late grandfather:
“We almost didn't name him that because people would assume I named him after Leonardo DiCaprio. There's nothing wrong with that, but … he's named after my wife's grandfather, but also because, just in our hearts, he was our little lion. So he's a lion. That's how we thought about him.”
Quentin Tarantino and Daniella Pick first met during the promotion of the former’s film Inglorious Basterds in 2009. The duo got engaged in 2017 and tied the knot the following year. The 58-year-old filmmaker is 20 years his wife’s senior.
