Director Sam Taylor-Wood has announced she is pregnant with fiance Aaron Johnson’s child.

The pair hit the headlines in October after becoming engaged to the Nowhere Boy star, who is 23 years her junior.

Sam and Aaron are said to be “very, very happy” in expecting their first child despite the large age gap between them.

The couple met and fell in love with Aaron after he was cast as John Lennon in Nowhere Boy, Taylor-Wood’s first outing as a director.

A spokesman for the couple said: “We can confirm that Sam is pregnant with her and Aaron’s first child. Both are very, very happy.”

However, he did not reveal when her baby is due. Sam Taylor-Wood is divorced from Jay Joplin, recently linked with popstar Lily allen.

Sam, who’s twice battled and survived cancer, already has two children Angelica, 12, and Jessie, three, with ex-husband.
