May-December Pair Welcomes Daughter
It's a girl for May-December pair Sam Taylor-Wood and Aaron Johnson! The couple reveals their daughter's name and shares why they feel love ain't nothing but a number.
Congratulations are in order for filmmaker Sam Taylor-Wood and English actor Aaron Johnson on the birth of their daughter, Romy Hero! The baby girl is the second for the couple, who welcomed daughter Wylda Rae in 2010.
A spokesperson for the couple, who previously worked together when she directed him in the film Nowhere Boy, confirmed the news Wednesday saying, "Sam Taylor-Wood and Aaron Johnson are the proud parents of Romy Hero Johnson, who was born at home in London on Jan.18. Both mother and daughter are well."
The pair is pictured here on a stroll in London just days before Sam Taylor-Wood gave birth.
Despite the 23-year age difference between Sam Taylor-Wood, 44, and Aaron Johnson, 21, both insist they are happy in love. He commented previously, "I'm an old soul and she's a young soul. We don't see an age gap, we just see each other."
Sam Taylor-Wood, who is also mother to 14-year-old Anjelica and 5-year-old Jessie from her marriage to art dealer Jay Jopling, spoke of her young love's attitude toward family after the birth of their first daughter, Wylda.
She explained, "Aaron, almost before anything started between us, said he wanted kids. He was very clear about wanting a family. We hardly go out now -- it's just us. Aaron has brought a set of values I didn't even know I was looking for -- family values. He is more grounded. He has been getting work offers which he has turned down because he wants to be here for the crucial first months of Wylda's life."
Congratulations to Aaron Johnson and Sam Taylor-Wood on baby Romy's arrival!
