80-year-old Robert De Niro burst into tears over his nine-month-old daughter. What the actor's children look like
American actor and producer Robert De Niro broke down in tears when he mentioned his nine-month-old daughter Gia in an interview. He got emotional while talking about how much he enjoys being a father and what feelings fatherhood evokes in him.
The interview with the 80-year-old artist was published by AARP. In total, the star father has 7 children, and he has already tragically lost one of his grandchildren.
According to De Niro, he loves being a father. He even keeps a picture of one of his daughters on his phone's screen saver.
"Everything that worries me, everything that bothers me, disappears when I look at her. It's wonderful. And when she gets older, who knows. But she looks at you so sweetly, she accepts you so much, she thinks, she watches..." the artist said and cried.
Family has always been important to the Oscar and other prestigious awards winner. He has seven children-born, adopted, and carried by a surrogate mother-but the star loves each of them equally.
In his first marriage to the African-American actress and singer Dianne Abbott, Robert De Niro adopted her daughter Drena, with whom he later acted in films for many years and maintains a good relationship. Her brother, Raphael, was born to Dianne Abbott and the actor a little later.
In his relationship with the model Tookie Smith, the star father decided to have his twins carried by a surrogate mother. This is how Julian Henry and Aaron Kendrick were born under the producer's care. The former has become quite famous, while the latter hides his face and does not lead a public life.
In 1997, De Niro married for the second time to flight attendant Grace Hightower, and in 1998 they had a son, Elliot, and in 2011 a daughter, Helen. By the way, the actor once said that Elliot suffers from autism.
It seemed that the actor's romantic escapades were over, if not for the unexpected news - in 2023, he became the father of little Gia for the seventh time. The 45-year-old actress and martial arts trainer Tiffany Chen gave the heiress to her famous father.
Earlier, OBOZ.UA wrote that the joy of the birth of the seventh child was overshadowed by tragic news. The 20-year-old grandson of actor Leonardo De Niro Rodriguez died in his apartment. A plate with a white powdery substance was found near his body.
