Robert De Niro, who has won two Academy Awards, has become a father for the seventh time.
The actor from “The Godfather Part II” and “Meet the Parents” recently revealed that he now has seven children when asked about his existing six in an interview.
When ET Canada’s Brittnee Blair asked him how many kids he has, he said, “Seven, actually.”
The movie veteran, who is 79 years old, continued, “I just had a baby,” but did not provide any other details.
On Tuesday, The Times reached out to De Niro’s representatives for comment, but they did not immediately answer.

But De Niro did give Blair some pointers on parenting. He believes “in being loving with [his] kids,” but still having “to be stern.”
“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.”
The “Raging Bull” and “Goodfellas” actor is a grandfather multiple times over thanks to his six children from previous partnerships.
His daughter Drena De Niro, 51, is also an actor, and his son Raphael De Niro, 46, was born to him and his first wife, Diahnne Abbott.
His twin boys Julian and Aaron, now 27 years old, were born in 1995 to him and his ex-girlfriend, the model and actor Toukie Smith.
De Niro and his ex-wife Grace Hightower have a 24-year-old son named Elliot and an 11-year-old daughter named Helen Grace. He and Hightower ended their 20-year marriage this year.
The identity of the mystery woman who allegedly became pregnant in March with “The Irishman” star’s seventh kid has not been revealed.
Although he did not comment on Tiffany Chen’s pregnancy at the time, the “Intern” star has been related to Tiffany Chen, a martial arts instructor, since 2021.
A month previously, Chen and Robert were out to dinner when she first showed her pregnant belly.
Is she the mother of his child? We are still waiting for an official statement.
