Robert De Niro, the Academy Award-winning actor, has become a father for the seventh time.
During an interview with ET Canada to promote his new film “About My Father,” De Niro revealed his baby news.
The 79-year-old corrected the interviewer when she mentioned his six previously known children, stating that he now has seven children.
“Seven, actually,” De Niro said, adding “I just had a baby.”
The gender and age of his newest addition has not been revealed (nor has the identity of the mother) but the baby is at least a whopping 50 years younger than their oldest sibling.
De Niro has six children from two previous marriages with Diahnne Abbott and Grace Hightower, and a past relationship with Toukie Smith. They are daughters Drena, 51, and Helen Grace, 11, and sons Raphael, 46, twins Julian and Aaron, 27, and Elliot, 24.
In the interview, he spoke about the joy of fatherhood and his belief in being both loving and stern with his children.
“I don’t think I’m a cool dad,” De Niro said, going on to joke about how his 11-year-old daughter, whom he “adores,” gives him “grief” sometimes.
“And my youngest now, that’ll be more to come,” he added with a smile.
