Director Sam Taylor-Wood and her fiancé, actor Aaron Johnson welcomed a healthy baby girl named Wylda Rae in south London, England on Wednesday (July 7). This is Aaron’s first child, but Sam already has two daughters with ex-husband, art dealer Jay Jopling.
A rep for the couple said in a statement, “Sam Taylor-Wood and Aaron Johnson are happy to announce the birth of their daughter Wylda Rae, who was born yesterday, July 7, in London.”
The 43 year-old director and 20 year-old actor met and started to get to know each other on the set of her movie “Nowhere Boy”, where Aaron portrayed a young John Lennon. Sam and Aaron announced their engagement on the night of the movie’s premiere in October 2009 and confirmed they were expecting their first child together back in January.
