Quentin Tarantino (59) and his wife Daniella (38) are happy about a little daughter. The couple’s second child was born over the weekend. “Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are pleased to announce that on July 2, 2022, Daniella gave birth to a baby girl, a baby sister to Leo, their first child,” according to “People” magazine in a statement. Further details are apparently not known.

In February, the star director and his wife had opposite “E! News” confirmed that they are expecting offspring again. Her son Leo was born in February 2020. Tarantino and Israeli singer and actress Daniella Pick met at the 2009 Jerusalem Film Festival. The two got engaged in 2017, and a year later they said yes in Beverly Hills.

That’s why his reward is called Leo

Last year, during an appearance on the show Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Quentin Tarantino explained how he and his wife came up with his son’s name. And it has nothing to do with his friendship with Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio (47), with whom the director made the films “Django Unchained” and “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood”.

“We almost didn’t name him that because people would assume I named him after Leonardo DiCaprio,” Tarantino said. “There’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s named after my wife’s grandfather.”

Guessing about the next film

Will Tarantino soon only devote himself to the family? The filmmaker had hinted he might retire after his tenth film – which would be after his next project. What this looks like, however, still seems to be unclear.

When he received a lifetime achievement award at the Rome Film Festival in October, he reportedly said he had “no idea” what his tenth film would be. When asked about speculation it could be a Kill Bill sequel, the director said, “Why not?”
