Robert De Niro, the 79-year-old Oscar winner, has recently revealed that he is now a father of seven. The news was confirmed by his representative after De Niro mentioned it in a new interview with ET Canada.
When asked about being a dad, De Niro shared that he believes in being loving with his children, but also has to be stern about certain things. He emphasized that any parent would say the same thing and that he always wants to do the right thing by his children and give them the benefit of the doubt.
The interviewer then noted that De Niro had six kids, to which he responded, “Seven, actually. I just had a baby.” However, De Niro did not reveal the identity of his baby’s mother.
De Niro has two kids with his ex-wife Diahnne Abbott, Drena (51) and Raphael (46), and two kids with his former wife Grace Hightower, Elliot (25) and Helen (11). He is also a dad to twins Aaron and Julian (27) with former girlfriend Toukie Smith.
De Niro split from Hightower in 2018 after 20 years of marriage and was last linked to New York City-based martial arts instructor Tiffany Chen, whom he was photographed with in July.
No word has been shared on the name of the new little one, but congratulations to Robert De Niro on expanding his family!
