In a new photo obtained by Page Six, the iconic actor Robert De Niro, 80, is captured cuddling with his infant daughter on his lap. De Niro expressed his affection for the baby in an interview with People, describing her as «such an adorable baby» and emphasizing her sweetness.
The veteran actor humorously acknowledged the unique family dynamic resulting from the birth of his seventh child at the age of 79. De Niro shared that all the kids, including the grandchildren, find joy in the presence of the newborn, who has become their aunt. The actor is known to have a diverse family, with children spanning various ages, including his newest addition, Gia, born in spring 2023 with girlfriend Tiffany Chen.
De Niro’s children include Drena, 56, Raphael, 47, twins Julian and Aaron, 28, Elliot, 25, and Helen, 12. Unfortunately, De Niro also experienced the loss of a grandchild, Drena’s son Leandro, who passed away from an accidental overdose at the age of 19.
In a recent interview with AARP, De Niro expressed the profound impact of his latest addition, stating that looking at Gia makes everything else fade away, describing the experience as «wondrous.»
The Oscar winner, known for his roles in films like «Goodfellas,» provided insight into his family life with Chen and baby Gia, emphasizing the support he provides while acknowledging that Chen takes on the primary caregiving responsibilities.
De Niro and Chen’s relationship became public in 2021, and they welcomed their first child together in the spring of 2023. The couple first crossed paths on the set of the 2015 film «The Intern.» While discussing their relationship on «CBS Mornings,» Chen shared that they initially connected as colleagues and later discovered a strong compatibility that led to their romantic involvement.
De Niro, a Hollywood legend, was previously married to Diahnne Abbott from 1976 to 1988 and Grace Hightower from 1997 to 2018. The actor continues to balance his illustrious career with his role as a father and, most recently, a doting parent to baby Gia.
