Robert De Niro welcomes seventh child at 79

 Robert De Niro, 79, has welcomed his seventh child.

De Niro's representative Stan Rosenfield confirmed the baby's birth to USA TODAY without offering any additional detail.

The "Godfather" and "Meet the Parents" star, who has been twice married and divorced, has six other children.

He is dad to Drena, 51, and Raphael, 46, from his first marriage to Diahnne Abbot. He shares twins Julian and Aaron, 27, with Toukie Smith, whom he never married. And he shares Elliot, 25, and Helen Grace, 11, with Grace Hightower, who he wed in 1997 and separated in 2018. He is also a grandfather.

Robert De Niro is a dad to 7 now! The actor welcomed a new baby at 79.

The actor spilled the news about his new addition in an interview with ET Canada during a conversation about his upcoming film "About My Father", which is set to be released on May 26.

When reporter Brittnee Blair noted De Niro's six kids, he corrected her, saying, "Seven, actually."

"I just had a baby," he revealed.

He also spoke to Blair about fatherhood, saying he believes "in being loving with (his) kids,” but that sometimes, parents have “to be stern about stuff.”

“I mean, there’s no way around it with kids. I don’t like to have to lay down the law and stuff like that. But, (sometimes) you just have no choice,” he said. “And any parent, I think, would say the same thing. You always want to do the right thing by the children and give them the benefit of the doubt but sometimes you can’t.”
