Sam Taylor-Johnson & Husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson Get Matching Tattoos
Woo shared an image of the couple’s new ink on Instagram. Sam’s collarbone has Aaron’s name written in black, cursive letters, while Aaron has a tattoo of a hummingbird above the name “Sam,” also written in black, cursive letters right above his heart.
“Captured a healed hummingbird on Aaron and added some love for Sam,” Woo captioned on the two photos.
In honor of Sam’s 50th birthday, Aaron got her name written on his chest and shared a no-longer-available Instagram photo of the tattoo, captioning it “always in my (heart).”
The couple met on the set of the 2009 film Nowhere Boy and have been together for nearly 12 years. At the time the movie was being filmed, Aaron was 18-years-old and Sam was 42-years old. Sam was in the process of getting a divorce from her ex-husband Jay Jopling, with whom she has two daughters.
The two said the age difference was not noticeable because of the connection they had and the chemistry between them.
“I knew instantly that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with this person,” Aaron told The Telegraph in 2019.
The couple began dating soon after wrapping up production on Nowhere Boy. A few months later they had their first child together and announced their engagement in 2009.
“I knew I wanted a family with her, I knew I wanted kids, and a month later she was pregnant with our first child,” Aaron told The Telegraph.
They had their first daughter Wylda Rae in 2010 and in 2012, they had their youngest child, Romy Hero.
Both Wylda, Romy and Sam’s children from her previous marriage attended their wedding in 2012, where the couple decided to combine their last names.
“I just don’t see why women need to take the man’s name,” Aaron said in 2012. “I wanted to be a part of her just as much as she wanted to be part of me.”
