Recently, the 79-year-old actor revealed that he has welcomed his seventh child with rumored girlfriend Tiffany Chen. While the baby’s mother has not been officially confirmed, fans have speculated that it is Chen, whom De Niro met on the set of his movie “The Intern” in 2015.

In a recent interview, he discussed his parenting style, admitting that he doesn’t consider himself a “cool dad.” However, he emphasized the importance of being loving and sometimes stern with his children.
“I’m okay,” he said. “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’s fans have been eager to learn more about his growing family, and the arrival of his seventh child has only added to the excitement. While the baby’s mother has not been officially confirmed, De Niro’s relationship with Chen has been the subject of speculation for some time.
