Legendary director Quentin Tarantino welcomed his first child with his wife Daniella Pick on Saturday.
The 56-year-old Oscar winner became the father of a baby boy after his 36-year-old wife gave birth over the weekend, reportedly in Tel Aviv, Israel.
‘Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are happy to announce the birth of their first child. A baby boy born February 22, 2020,’ a representative for the couple told TMZ.

The baby was born at Tel Aviv’s Ichilov hospital, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Daniella is Israeli, which seems to explain why they wanted their child born there.
So far, the couple haven’t revealed the name of their child.
The two are currently based in Beverly Hills, but last November they began renting an apartment in a tony neighborhood in the Israeli coastal city, suggesting a possible permanent move.

‘I have some short trips [back to the US] planned for the [Oscar] awards ceremony,’ Tarantino previously told the Israeli publication Yediot Aharonot. ‘And of course, we’ll be here for the birth and after.’
This is the first child for either Tarantino or Pick.
He first met the singer in 2009, when the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood auteur was visiting Israel to promote his WWII revenge film Inglourious Basterds.
Things progressed slowly, and the two didn’t start dating until 2016, with a June 2017 engagement following.
They married with an intimate ceremony in their Beverly Hills home on November 28, 2018, and the two announced that they were expecting their first child in August 2019.

Brad Pitt was also featured in a major role as his friend and stunt double Cliff Booth, and the film juxtaposed their experiences in the industry with the growing menace of the Manson family and the promise of rising star Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie).
The film earned multiple awards for Brad Pitt’s supporting role, including the Academy Award.
It was also honored at the Oscars for Best Production Design for its breathtaking recreation of Los Angeles in the late 1960s.
