THE BABY WASN'T BORN IN THE US
According to The Jerusalem Post, the child was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, and that it is a beautiful baby boy. So far, it is unknown whether Tarantino and Pick have chosen a name for him.
Back in 2019, the couple announced that they were expecting a baby, almost a year after tying the knot in a private ceremony in Los Angeles.
TARANTINO AND PICK'S RELATIONSHIP
Although the wedding was closed to the public, the husband and wife posed for a few photos in front of a very romantic wall of white flowers.
I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies
Tarantino and Pick met in 2009 when the filmmaker flew to Israel to promote "Inglorious Basterds," the movie featuring Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz and Eli Roth.

After dating for a year, the two got engaged in 2017 and hosted an engagement party in New York attended by "Pulp Fiction" stars Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis.
The 56-year-old director seems to ready to settle down, not only because of his baby boy but also because he believes he has reached its peak when it comes to Hollywood.

CLOSE TO THE END
Tarantino was recently nominated for Best Director at the 2020 Academy Awards for "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood" but he claims that he has nothing more to give to the industry:
“I think when it comes to theatrical movies, I’ve come to the end of the road. I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies.”
Although "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood" was a box office success, the portrayal of Bruce Lee was severely criticized by his daughter, Shannon Lee.
According to her, she was saddened to see her father depicted as "arrogant" and someone "full of hot air," and that it was hard to listen to people laughing at Lee's character.
