Less than nine months after 56-year-old Quentin Tarantino decided, what the hell, time to get married, he announced that, what the hell, he’s also going to be a father. Quentin and his 35-year-old wife Daniella Pick confirmed the news to People, which is nice for him, because I’m sure he was happy to talk about something other than Bruce Lee’s daughter.
Quentin’s scripts are usually pretty wordy, and in real life he’s got diarrhea of the mouth. But apparently he’s got about 200% less verbal enthusiasm when it comes to pregnancy announcements. Because here’s their official statement:
“Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are very delighted to announce that they are expecting a baby.”
This is a baby co-made by Quentin Tarantino, so you would think he would have given an exhaustive press conference on his process. But we know nothing. Well, not nothing. I do have a feeling that Quentin’s baby will get kicked out of preschool for saying the word “fuck” a record breaking sixty times before naptime.
Four years ago, Quentin told Entertainment Weekly that he had baby fever about 13 years earlier, but that at the time (2015) the fever had passed and he wasn’t really into it. However, he did say that he might want kids in the future, but that his preference was to finish his 10 films first without any distractions. Looks like he’s got a distraction on his hands now.
This will be both QT and Daniella’s first child. I’m thinking Quentin will have lots of questions about being a new parent, and luckily he’s got lots of friends he can ask for help. Like his good buddies Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. Leo can’t help much right now, but I’m sure he’ll be a pro at teaching Quentin how to relate to a 20-year-old. And Quentin could always call up Brad and ask for advice. Although something tells me there’s going to be a lot of shrugging and “Um…well…” on Brad’s end.
