LOS ANGELES (AP) - Quentin Tarantino is going to be telling a whole new brand of "Once upon a time" tale - the bedtime-story kind.

The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood director is about to become a father.

His representative Katherine Rowe says Tarantino and his wife, Israeli model and singer Daniella Pick, are expecting a baby. No further details were released.

The couple met in 2009 and married last November, just after Tarantino finished shooting Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, the film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt that became a summer hit.

It is the first child for the 56-year-old Tarantino, who also directed Pulp Fiction (1994) and Reservoir Dogs (1992), and the 35-year-old Pick, who is the daughter of singer-songwriter Svika Pick.
