Sam Taylor-Wood, 44, and Aaron Johnson, 21, have welcomed their second child, a baby girl. The couple already have an 18-month-old daughter named Wylda Rae. The Belfast Telegraph reports the baby was born on January 18. The couple have named her Romy Hero Johnson.
Their spokesperson states, “Sam Taylor-Wood and Aaron Johnson are the proud parents of Romy Hero Johnson, who was born at home in London on January 18. Both mother and daughter are well.”
Taylor-Wood also has two older daughters, Anjelica, 14, and Jessie, 5, from her marriage to Jay Jopling.
Because of their 23-year age gap, Johnson has had to defend their relationship.
I’m an old soul and she’s a young soul. We don’t see an age gap, we just see each other.’
The 44-year-old filmmaker has talked about Aaron’s willingness to start a family.
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.”
