Quentin Tarantino can now claim his own true romance. People confirms the 55-year-old director married 35-year-old Israeli singer and model Daniella Pick in a small ceremony Wednesday in Los Angeles. The two met nearly a decade ago while Tarantino was promoting Inglourious Basterds, broke up, then "reconnected" in 2015, People notes; they got engaged in June of last year. It's the first marriage for both, and a somewhat surprising one for those who've followed Tarantino: He famously said his work takes up too much of his time for him to settle down and tie the knot.

"When I'm doing a movie, I'm not doing anything else," he said in a 2009 GQ interview, right around the time he met Pick. "It's all about the movie. I don't have a wife. I don't have a kid. Nothing can get in my way." He did concede, however, that "I'm not saying that I'll never get married or have a kid before I'm 60." Looks like he got in just under the wire. People has more on Pick, the daughter of Israeli singer and composer Svika Pick, who posted a picture of the happy couple on his Instagram after the nuptials. (Tarantino has expressed "regrets" about incidents with Uma Thurman.)
