Robert De Niro, 79, is officially a father of seven!!

Robert De Niro is officially a father of seven.

In a sitdown with ET Canada the 79-year-old Oscar winner revealed that he has welcomed a seventh baby while discussing parenting and his most recent film,  ‘About my Father.’

De Niro said, “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 explained. “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.”

When the interviewer asked De Niro about his six children, he corrected, “Seven, actually.”

The Academy Award winner has six children from previous relationships. De Niro and his first wife, Diahnne Abbott, are parents to daughter Drena, 51, and son Raphael, 46. In 1995, he welcomed twin sons Julian and Aaron, 27, with his former girlfriend, model and actress Toukie Smith. De Niro also shares son Elliot, 24, and daughter Helen Grace, 11, with his ex-wife, Grace Hightower.
