When speaking to ET Canada about his upcoming movie “About My Father,” reporter Brittnee Blair said that “I know you have six kids,” and that is when De Niro casually corrected her, saying, “Seven, actually.”
“I just had a baby,” he revealed.
ET Canada has also reached out to De Niro’s team, who have confirmed that the actor is in fact a father of seven. Although, they say that it’s currently unclear who the mother is.
The Hollywood icon went on to reveal that he doesn’t consider himself a “cool dad” despite playing that role in his upcoming film.
“I’m okay,” he told ET Canada. “You know, my kids disagree with me at times, and they’re respectful. My daughter, she’s 11, she gives me grief sometimes and I argue with her. I adore her, but, you know. And my youngest now, that’ll be more to come. But, that’s what it is.”
De Niro, who has been married twice, shares children Drena who’s 51, and Raphael 46, with his first wife Diahnne Abbott, two children Elliot 25, and Helen 11 with his other ex-wife, Grace Hightower. De Niro is also a father to twin sons Aaron and Julian 27, with former partner Toukie Smith.
