Posted by

The actor revealed he has just welcomed his seventh child. Robert De Niro made the surprise announcement during his recent interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada’s Brittnee Blair while promoting his upcoming comedy movie “About My Father.” The 79-year-old corrected Blair when she told him he had six kids, informing her, “Seven, actually.” 

“I just had a baby,” De Niro added and gave no additional information. He then spoke about his parenting style, saying he doesn’t consider himself a cool dad. “I’m okay,” he told ET Canada. “You know, my kids disagree with me at times, and they’re respectful. My daughter, who’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.”

De Niro, who has been married twice, has 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 Hightower. He also shares twin sons Aaron and Julian, 27, with his ex-girlfriend Toukie Smith. Currently, the actor is promoting the new comedy which opens on May 26.

Twice crowned with Academy Awards, for his supporting portrayal in “The Godfather: Part II” and his lead performance in “Raging Bull,” De Niro’s exceptional contributions to the entertainment industry were lauded with the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award by the Golden Globes in 2011. Further, he was adorned with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, an emblem of his remarkable feats, five years later.
