Quentin Tarantino welcomes second baby with wife Daniella Pick
Quentin Tarantino is now a father of two.
The filmmaker’s wife, Daniella Pick, gave birth to their second child on Saturday.
“Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are happy to announce that Daniella gave birth to their baby girl on July 2, 2022, a little sister to Leo, their first child,” the pair’s rep told People on Monday.
News broke in February that Tarantino, 59, was expecting baby No. 2 with the singer, 38.
The couple’s little one joins big brother Leo, 2, whom the couple welcomed in February 2020.
The pair “almost” chose a different name for their baby boy, Tarantino told Jimmy Kimmel one year after becoming a father.
“People would assume that I named him after Leonardo DiCaprio,” the director explained during his appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in June 2021.
“There’s nothing wrong with that but I didn’t,” he continued. “He’s named after my wife’s grandfather, but also because, just in our hearts, he was our little lion.”
The following month, the Oscar winner got emotional while describing his experience with fatherhood.
“If I talk about it too much, I’m already going to start crying,” the new dad said on CBS This Morning in July 2021. “I can’t even see his name written on a piece of paper without crying.”
The Tennessee native went on to call the toddler “the most charming human being” he has ever met.
“Half the time I look at him and I’m just laughing because he’s so funny,” he gushed. “And the other time I’m just bursting into tears.”
The Golden Globe winner, who wed Pick in November 2018, noted that his family life has not “taken anything away” from his career.
“I met her, we fell in love, she wanted to get married and I did too, and so I’m married,” Tarantino said of the Israeli model.
The duo’s Los Angeles ceremony made the screenwriter “take stock” of his life and look at it “from a new angle,” he said at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
“I’ve never [gotten married] before and now I know why,” he explained at the time. “I was waiting for the perfect girl.”
