Robert De Niro shares details about his newborn daughter
King proceeded to show a photograph of the recently born baby, who had dark hair and was dressed in a light pink onesie. She discloses that the child was born on April 6th and that her name is Gia Virginia Chen-De Niro.
King added that De Niro and his partner Tiffany Chen are “over the moon” about the birth of their daughter.
In addition to his newborn daughter, the star of iconic movies like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and Goodfellas, has six other children from various previous relationships.
He has a daughter named Drena, aged 51, and a son named Raphael, aged 46, with his former wife, Diahnne Abbott. In 1995, he had twins named Julian and Aaron with his ex-girlfriend Toukie Smith. He also has a 25-year-old son named Elliot and an 11-year-old daughter named Helen Grace with his ex-wife Grace Hightower.
Becoming a father again at 79
The American TV host further explained that De Niro was an enthusiastic father and that he was “psyched” and “excited” to welcome newborn Gia into the world. King also claims to have asked De Niro whether the baby was “planned” to which he responded affirmatively.
At the premiere of De Niro’s upcoming movie About My Father, the media outlet Page Six asked the actor whether he was surprised about becoming a father again at 79, to which he reportedly answered “No”.
The Hollywood actor told Page Six that the pregnancy was planned, adding “How you could not plan that kind of thing?”
During the premiere of About MY Father, De Niro’s costar Kim Cattrall also spoke to the media, saying “God bless him, his significant other. Tiffany is such a beautiful woman. She came to the set once with her family and watched filming, and she was gorgeous and sweet. I’m happy for both of them.”
