Once upon a time ... in Tel Aviv, Quentin Tarantino became a first-time father at the ripe old age of 56, reports People. "Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are happy to announce the birth of their first child," the couple tells TMZ in a statement. "A baby boy born February 22, 2020." The child is the first for both. Tarantino's wife, Daniella Pick, is an Israeli singer and model; the couple met in 2008 while the director was promoting Inglourious Basterds in Israel. They married in November 2018. Tarantino might be taking up daddy duty full time, as he's hinted that he's got just one more film left in him. "I think when it comes to theatrical movies, I’ve come to the end of the road," Tarantino said in a July interview. "I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies."
