Hollywood legend Robert De Niro has fathered a seventh child ahead of turning 80 years old.
The infant was spotted for the first time and appears to be less than a month old.
He revealed the shocking news earlier in an interview after his actress girlfriend Tiffany Chen was spotted out and about with the baby.
The little one looked adorable in a pink onesie, swaddled in a blanket.
Although the news of the pregnancy is surprising to many, De Niro claimed that the birth of his newest child was planned so the occasion was not at all surprising to him.
“How could you not plan that kind of thing?” he asked, also sharing his thoughts about becoming a father once again.
“I'm ok with it,” he claimed. “I'm good with it.”
When asked if parenthood gets easier with time and having more children, he remarked: “Never gets easier.”
At a film premiere Tuesday night, De Niro told The Associated Press about becoming a father again: “It’s always good and mysterious and you don’t know what the hell is going to happen.”
The Oscar winner is also a parent to Drena, 51, and Raphael, 46, from his first marriage to Diahne Abbott; and twins, Julian and Aaron, 27; Elliot, 24; and Helen Grace, 11, from his second marriage to Grace Hightower. De Niro and Hightower announced they were divorcing in 2018.
De Niro is a two-time Oscar winner for his supporting role in “The Godfather: Part II” and best actor in “Raging Bull.”
In 2011, he was also honored with the Golden Globes’ Cecil B. DeMille Award for his impact on the world of entertainment and awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom five years later.
