Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has become engaged to his girlfriend, Israeli musician and model Daniela Pick, after what has been described as an “on’off” eight-year relationship, reported.

“We’re super happy and excited,” Pik told Israel’s Ynet news site. “She’s thrilled,” a friend told the Walla news site, that first reported the two’s engagement.

According to Tarantino himself is no stranger to Israel, having last visited along with Pick in January. Last July he was an honored guest at the 33rd Jerusalem Film Festival.

The 54-year-old Hollywood director and Pick are said to have met when he was in Israel to promote “Inglourious Basterds” in 2009.
