British director Sam Taylor-Wood has refuted allegations she pressured her 20-year-old fiance Aaron Johnson into starting a family – insisting it was the teenager who suggested cementing their relationship with a baby.
The couple met on the set of Taylor-Wood’s John Lennon movie Nowhere Boy, when the Kick-Ass star was just a teenager. They grew close during filming and began dating shortly after the shoot wrapped last year (09). They announced their engagement just months later and the 43-year-old director gave birth to their first child together, daughter Wylda, in July (10).
But Taylor-Wood, who has two kids from a previous relationship, is adamant it wasn’t her idea to have another baby.
“Aaron, almost before anything started between us, said he wanted kids. He was very clear about wanting a family…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 beginning months of Wylda’s life. This time I don’t want help and Aaron wants to be here and be involved. How refreshing is that?”
