Sam Taylor-Wood, 42, pregnant by actor Aaron Johnson, 19 *Update* Married
Quote:

She's already caused more than a little consternation by becoming engaged to a boy 23 years her junior.
But artist turned film director Sam Taylor-Wood, 42, has another surprise for the showbusiness world.
She is expecting a child by her 19-year-old fiance Aaron Johnson.

A spokesman for the pair said: 'We can confirm that Sam is pregnant with her and Aaron's first child. Both are very, very happy.'
Johnson plays John Lennon in Miss Taylor-Wood's film Nowhere Boy, which was released at the end of last year. They fell in love during filming and were engaged in October.

Miss Taylor-Wood, a successful artist, already has two daughters - Angelica, 12, and three-year-old Jessie - from her marriage to art dealer Jay Jopling. They split up in September 2008.
It emerged last May that Miss Taylor-Wood and Johnson had begun a relationship during the filming of Nowhere Boy in Liverpool.
The movie charted the young life and rise to fame of the Beatle and was Miss Taylor-Wood's directorial debut.
She received widespread acclaim for the work, as did Johnson for his portrayal of Lennon.

She has told how she felt she and Mr Johnson 'had quite a psychic link'. She has also dismissed the large age gap between the pair, saying: 'I've always lived my life as fearlessly as possible.
'I don't really listen to other people's opinions, just follow my heart and my instincts.'
The former Turner Prize nominee, who is also known for her video 'portrait' of David Beckham, fought colon cancer in 1997 and breast cancer three years later.
She twice had chemotherapy and is believed to have refused one course of drugs, fearing they would make her infertile.

She was married to Mr Jopling, the owner of the fashionable White Cube art gallery in East London, for 11 years.

They have remained friendly, with Mr Jopling and the couple's daughters joining Miss Taylor-Wood and Johnson at the premiere of Nowhere Boy at the London Film Festival in October.

Angelica played Lennon's sister in the film while Jessie also had a small role.
Speaking of the relationship between her daughters and Mr Johnson, Miss Taylor-Wood said: 'They get on really well. It all felt strangely natural.'
Johnson - who won his first film role when he was 12 - has also dismissed concerns over the age gap.
He said: 'To be honest, I've never really lived by the rule book. We just have a huge connection and we talk through a load of things. We just enjoy life and what's around us now.'
He started acting at the age of six and appeared in a series of TV films before landing the Lennon part.
Last year Mr Jopling, 46, briefly dated pop singer Lily Allen - who is 22 years his junior.

I'm all for true love but this...
After the birth of the baby, Sam will have four kids to look after. Sounds like hard work. Good luck to them anyway.

the guy from Nearly Famous?.. ugh, can't blame her.

That's mostly what I have to say.. their relationship is certainly the controversial kind but.. it's not like she's a murderer or anything. my best wishes.

All I can say is that I wish them the best of luck. They certainly have a big age gap, but my reaction is the same as when they announced their engagement last year, that if they are happy then that is all that matters and they definitely deserve happiness, particularly Sam after battling cancer twice at a youngish age. I guess if they wanted to have kids together, they needed to act sooner rather than later, which is obviously what they did. Anyway, I can't wait to see Nowhere Boy when it is released where I live and I think that they are two very talented individuals, so good luck to them.

And like MulletProof said, I do not blame her. Aaron Johnson is gorgeous .

Plenty of older men in age-gap relationships with society's total approval, so I wish them all the best.

Besides, after what she's been through, she probably realises that life's too short to give a damn about social conventions.

I agree with this! If the ages were reversed there would probably be far fewer people finding it shocking.

Her previous marriage didn't work out and they were a similar age so that should be an indication that these things don't necessarily matter much in making relationships work!

Congratulations to them!

yeah i am all my hands pro equality - younger man with older woman is , for me , the same situation as younger woman and older man but - 19 nine old father is no-no situation in any case. Plus what it will be after 10 years?

If they don´t care, i don´t see why any of us should.

I feel sorry for Aaron's mother. I would be so pissed if my 19 year old son got someone pregnant. I don't care how in love they are or how old she is. When a man is 19 and getting married. Big life changes.

Her daughter is 12 and her fiance is 19. That is some Jerry Springer stuff right there.

Agreed ... nothing like a life-threatening illness to stop you worrying 10 years ahead.

the thing i find troubling is that he's 19 and having a child. its not the relationship-- good for them, they found love. its their life but wouldnt he want a chance to at least grow as a man before becoming a father? shrugs.

a lil side note but when young women are with older men, most people think they are gold diggers.. does the same not apply for young men and older women? (this thought came from the tiger woods scandal where one women said she wanted to get pregnant to secure herself financially.)

yeah well not all 19 yr olds are aaron johnson and they certainly don't lead the life he does either.

i don't think it's very fair nor their right to pass moral judgements on people especially where there is no crime happening. if they feel secure enough in their own relationship and have the support of their families then who are we to say anything?
