Quentin Tarantino's wife Daniella Pick is pregnant with the couple's first child.

The 56-year-old filmmaker is set to become a father for the first time, as his wife Daniella - whom he married last year - is pregnant with the couple's first child.

In a statement to People magazine, the couple's representative said: ''Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are very delighted to announce that they are expecting a baby.''

The 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' director first met Daniella - who is the daughter of Israeli singer and songwriter Tzvika Pick - in 2009 while promoting his film 'Inglorious Basterds'.

The pair didn't start dating until 2016, though, and then got engaged in June 2017 after having dated for around a year.

Quentin and Daniella married another year later in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles in November 2018.

Danielle wore a white dress, white veil with a sweetheart neckline and tiara while Tarantino looked dapper in a black suit. The couple posed in front of a dramatic wall of white flowers.

Meanwhile, Quentin recently praised his wife as the ''perfect girl''.

He said: ''I just got married six months ago ... I have never done that before - and now I know why: I was waiting for the perfect girl.''

The 'Kill Bill' filmmaker previously admitted he had no plans to marry because he was too committed to his work.

He said: ''When I'm doing a movie, I'm not doing anything else.

''It's all about the movie. I don't have a wife. I don't have a kid. Nothing can get in my way.

''I'm not saying that I'll never get married or have a kid before I'm 60. But I've made a choice, so far, to go on this road alone. Because this is my time. This is my time to make movies.''
