19-Year-Old 'Kick-Ass' Star Expecting a Baby With 43-Year-Old Fiancee

The teenage actor playing a superhero on screen has a super-stunning romance off camera, with a woman more than twice his age

Move over Ashton and Demi, a new cougar romance has Hollywood buzzing! 19-year-old Aaron Johnson, star of the box-office hit Kick-Ass, is engaged to a woman more than twice his age: 43-year-old British artist Sam Taylor-Wood, with whom Johnson is also expecting his first child!

People reports that the unlikely pair met last year on the set of her feature film directorial debut, Nowhere Boy, a biopic about John Lennon's childhood. They were engaged and living together within a matter of months. Johnson explained why they make a good fit: "I'm an old soul and she's a young soul." 

Johnson says of Taylor-Wood, who has previously been married and has two children (ages 13 and 3), "She's lovely and she's a fantastic mother." He also noted that her kids have already prepped him for fatherhood, "It's not scary. I'm already a step-dad, anyway. So the nerves have sort of gone."

The young star says he's "excited" to start his new life with his bride-to-be, who is currently 7 months pregnant. Despite naysayers expressing curiosity about the pairing (we admit, the age difference is gasp-inducing at first), Johnson brushes it off, and claims that all that matters to him is that "I've got a wonderful woman."
