Robert De Niro has become a father once again at the age of 79, just three months before his 80th birthday. This exciting news has spread all over the world since the American actor shared it during an interview on the Entertainment Tonight Canada program while promoting his new film, About My Father.
Although Robert De Niro is not a stranger to fatherhood, as he is already a grandfather and has six other children from past relationships, his new baby has come as a delightful surprise. The girl’s mother is Tiffany Chen, a martial arts instructor whom he met during the filming of The Fellow.
During a recent appearance on CBS Mornings, De Niro shared more details about his daughter’s birth. Gia Virginia Chen De Niro was born on Thursday, April 6, weighing 8 pounds and 6 ounces. The actor and his partner, Sebastian Maniscalco, are “over the moon” with their new addition to the family.
In terms of physical features, Gia Virginia takes after her mother, with oriental features, sweet eyes, and long hair. De Niro was also seen for the first time with his partner earlier this year when they were on holiday in the south of France.
Despite usually keeping his private life out of the spotlight, De Niro seems very happy to share details about his new baby girl. In addition to his new film, it seems like fatherhood is also occupying a very special place in his heart.
