Robert De Niro is going to play the part of a dad to seven kids. The two-time Oscar winner told Entertainment Tonight Canadaabout his new family member when he was there to talk about his new movie, "About My Father." The baby's arrival was also announced by De Niro's rep, but the name of the child's mother has not been made public.
The 79-year-old actor, Robert De Niro said that he now has seven children after the birth seventh child. The star didn't post about it on Instagram like many famous people do these days. Instead, the newskind of popped out (pardon the word) during an interview with ET Canada.
The famous actor, who played the interesting dad Jack Byrnes in Meet the Fockers, talked about his youngest child when he was asked about how he raises his children. When ET Canada's Brittnee Blair brought up De Niro's six children, the 79-year-old star corrected her.
Seven, actually. I just had a baby.- Robert De Niro
We don't know the gender or name of his younger child yet, but he did talk about how he has changed as a parent over the years. De Niro adopted his first child 51 years ago, and his first kid who was born to him is now 46.
The new baby will join De Niro's six other children, including Drena, 51, and Raphael, 46, whom he shares with his ex-wife Diahnne Abbott, as well as his twin sons Aaron and Julian, 27, whom he shares with his ex-wife Toukie Smith. De Niro is also the father of Elliot, who is 25, and Helen, who is 11 years old. After being together for more than 20 years, De Niro and Hightower filed for divorce in 2018.
In a recent interview, the private actor, who plays in the new movie About My Father, talked about his life as a father and how he raises his kids. This was a rare look into his life as a father and how he raises his kids.
I mean, there's no way around it with kids. I don't like to have to lay down the law and stuff like that. But, [sometimes] you just have no choice. And any parent, I think, would say the same thing.- Robert De Niro
You always want to do the right thing by the children and give them the benefit of the doubt but sometimes you can't.- Robert De Niro
Even though De Niro is one of the most famous stars in Hollywood, he doesn't really think of himself as a "cool" dad.
I'm okay. You know, my kids disagree with me at times, and they're respectful. My daughter, she's 11, she gives me grief sometimes and I argue with her. I adore her, but, you know. And my youngest now, that'll be more to come. But, that's what it is.- Robert De Niro
In October, De Niro will be in "Killers of the Flower Moon," the new movie by Martin Scorsese, which also stars Leonardo DiCaprio. Both De Niro and DiCaprio have been in a number of Scorsese's movies, but this will be the first time that they both appear in one.
In an interview, Robert De Niro welcomes his Baby No. 7, not six. The star from "Killers of the Flower Moon" was in Canada promoting his new movie, "About My Father," which comes out on May 26. Brittnee Blair from ET Canada asked him about his six children. De Niro told her that she was wrong and said, “Seven, actually. I just had a baby.” At this point, we also don't know exactly when the baby was born or what gender it is.
