  • Sam Taylor-Wood and fiancé Aaron Johnson expecting first baby

    Sam Taylor-Wood and her 19-year-old fiancé, Aaron Johnson, have announced that they are expecting their first baby together.

    The 42-year-old film director confirmed that she is pregnant through a spokesperson, who commented: ‘We can confirm that Sam is pregnant with her and Aaron’s first child. Both are very, very happy.’

    Taylor-Wood and Johnson met on the set of Nowhere Boy, her directorial debut in which he starred in the lead role as John Lennon.  The couple announced their engagement in October 2009.

    This is not the first child for the celebrated artist and film director. She has two daughters – Angelica, 12, and three-year-old Jessie – from her 11-year-marriage to art dealer Jay Jopling, which ended in September 2008.

    It emerged that the parents-to-be were dating back in May 2009, with Taylor-Wood immediately dismissing the much-discussed age-gap, stating: ‘I’ve always lived my life as fearlessly as possible. I don’t really listen to other people’s opinions, just follow my heart and my instincts.’
