(This post was updated on May 11, 2023, with the baby’s name and a photo.) Robert De Niro is officially a father of seven.
The 79-year-old Oscar-winning actor confirmed he recently welcomed a baby while doing press for his forthcoming movie, About My Father.
Robert corrected interviewer Brittnee Blair when she said he had six kids.
He corrected her saying, “Seven, actually. I just had a baby.”
Robert De Niro doesn’t classify himself as a “cool dad,” but he gets the job done.
I’m okay. 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.

And last, but certainly not least, there is the newborn baby with his current girlfriend, Tiffany Chen, who is a New York-based martial arts instructor.
Gayle King got the scoop about Robert De Niro’s newborn and her name is Gia Virginia Chen-De Niro.
Gia was born on April 6, 2023, weighing 8 pounds and 6 ounces.

You may recall that during the holidays, Robert De Niro busted a woman in his Upper East Side home stealing gifts from under his Christmas tree.
Hopefully, he’s added a little extra security with a newborn in the house.
