Robert De Niro, 79, reveals he secretly welcomed his 7th child in shocking new interview | The Sun
ROBERT De Niro has announced that he has secretly welcomed his seventh child.
The Godfather actor, 79, revealed in a shocking interview this week that he has become a father once again.
Robert was asked by a reporter from ET Canada what it was like to be a father of six children.
The Oscar winner corrected the reporter, saying: "Seven, actually. I just had a baby."
He did not divulge the baby's gender or name.
The Goodfellas actor also kept the identity of his baby's mother a secret.
He was last linked to martial arts instructor Tiffany Chen, who he was spotted on vacation with in Spain in July 2022.
Robert dropped the bombshell baby news while promoting his new movie, About My Father.
He went on to discuss his parenting style, saying he believes “in being loving with [his] kids,” despite sometimes having “to be stern about stuff.”
The Irishman actor added:“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.
"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 split from his wife of 20 years, Grace Hightower, in 2018.
He shares two children – Drena, 51, and Raphael, 46 – with his first wife, Diahnne Abbott, and two children – Elliot, 25, and Helen, 11 – with ex-wife, Grace.
He’s also a father to twin sons Aaron and Julian, 27, with his former girlfriend, Toukie Smith.
Robert – who is reportedly worth $500 million – had a highly publicized divorce battle with his second wife, Grace, 68.
In 2021, a judge ruled that Robert should pay Grace $1million a year and that the couple will split the proceeds after selling their $20million home.
Robert was also ordered to pay $6million so that his ex-wife could buy a new home.
It was previously revealed that Grace's average monthly spend was $215,000 a month on credit cards and $160,000 in cash.
Robert's attorney, Caroline Krauss, claimed the financial strain meant the actor was running out of money.
