Sam Taylor-Wood and toyboy fianc Aaron Johnson welcome their second child
Artist/director Sam Taylor-Wood and fianc Aaron Johnson have become parents again to a baby girl.
The new arrival – whose name has not been revealed – was born this month, joining big sister Wylda Rae, 18 months.
The birth means Nowhere Boy star Johnson is now outnumbered in a house full of females, along with Taylor-Wood's two older daughters Anjelica, 14, and Jessie, five, from her previous marriage to art dealer Jay Jopling.

Acclaimed artist Taylor-Wood's fourth pregnancy was confirmed by her representative last July.
The arrival of her fourth child comes just a month after the heavily pregnant star accepted her OBE from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.
Taylor-Wood, 44, and Johnson, 21, fell in love on the set of Nowhere Boy in 2009 and announced their engagement in October that year after just a few months of dating.
The artist made her directorial debut with the John Lennon biopic, which starred Johnson as the young Beatle.

Ex factor: The artist also has two daughters with ex-husband, art dealer Jay Jopling
Their relationship raised eyebrows due to their 23 year age gap and the fact that Johnson was just 19 at the time.
They started dating less than a year after Taylor-Wood and ex-husband Jopling, 48, separated after 11 years of marriage.
In an interview last year, Taylor-Wood admitted she had been persuaded to start a second family with Johnson by the actor himself.
She said: 'Aaron, almost before anything started between us, said he wanted kids. He was very clear about wanting a family.
'We hardly go out now – it's just us. 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 first months
of Wylda's life.'
Taylor-Wood also attacked the media for
concentrating on relationships between younger men and older women, who
have been labelled 'cougars'.
She said: 'In the old days, “controversial” in a relationship meant same-sex or mixed races. Now, it
is a woman with a younger man. That would not happen with a man.'
And Johnson has also defended their relationship: 'I’m an old soul and she’s a young soul. We don’t see an age gap, we just see each other.'
