Robert De Niro has revealed that he's just had his seventh child at the age of 79 with an unconfirmed woman. The American actor, known for his iconic roles in films like The Godfather, Goodfellas, Brazil, and more, shared the news in an interview with ET Canada reporter Brittnee Blair earlier this week. When Blair began to discuss De Niro's six children, he corrected the reporter, stating "Seven actually ... I just had a baby." It is currently unclear who gave birth to De Niro's seventh child. Although, it is speculated that it could have been his rumored girlfriend Chinese film producer Tiffany Chen, who he was spotted out with in March.

In paparazzi footage of the pair leaving the popular Italian restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles, you can hear someone refer to Chen saying, "Hey guys, c'mon, she's pregnant." De Niro has been married twice and his six other children. Drena, Raphael, Julian, Elliot, Aaron, and Helen, were carried by various women including the star's ex-wives. This includes actresses Grace Hightower and Diahnne Abbott.

The Taxi Driver actor is currently promoting his new film, About My Father. He stars alongside Italian-American stand-up comedian Sebastian Maniscalco and Sex and the City actress Kim Cattrall. Ironically, the film centers around De Niro's character who plays an Italian immigrant father spending time with the upper-class family of his son's fiancée resulting in a culture clash. The film is set to be released later this month.

In December of last year, De Niro's Upper East Side residence was burglarized. This happened while the star was home, which led to the arrest of a 30-year-old woman, Shanice Aviles, who had multiple prior arrests. De Niro was asleep during the burglary, which included Aviles bagging up Christmas presents under his tree. Additionally, this led to police waking up the star to notify him of what was happening. De Niro also acted alongside Margot Robbie and Christian Bale in the 2022 comedy film Amsterdam. In the movie, he played the role of a General. The film, directed by David O. Russell and produced by Drake, was inspired by true events.
