Daniella, the daughter of Israeli singer-songwriter Tzvika Pick, first began dating Quentin after meeting him in 2009 as he was promoting his film Inglorious Basterds. The pair got engaged in June 2017 and married in November 2018. Their son Leo was born in February 2020.

Last year, Quentin opened up about his daddy duties in his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! revealing how he and his wife came up with his son's name – which didn't come from his close friendship with actor Leonardo DiCaprio, whom he worked with on  Django Unchained and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

"We almost didn't name him that because people would assume I named him after Leonardo DiCaprio," he said at the time. "There's nothing wrong with that, but … he's named after my wife's grandfather, but also because, just in our hearts, he was our little lion."

"So he's a lion. That's how we thought about him," the Oscar winner added.
