Robert De Niro discussed what it is like to be a father to a baby at 80 years old. The star, known for his incredible acting prowess, welcomed his seventh child with his girlfriend, Tiffany Chen
A few days ago, Hollywood legend Robert De Niro sat down for an interview where he shared his feelings about parenting his 9-month-old. His baby, Gia Virginia Chen De Niro, was born in April last year.
The film icon raises baby Gia with her mom and his younger girlfriend, Tiffany Chen. Regarding raising his seventh child, Robert spoke fondly of being a dad at 80.
The “Killers of the Flower Moon” star went on to express: “Everything that I’m consumed with or worried about or this or that, just goes away when I look at her.” He then got emotional as he took a long pause before finishing his statement by saying the effect his daughter has on him is “wondrous.”
The doting father also highlighted: “She has a very sweet kind of way of looking at you and just taking you in […] she’s thinking, she’s observing everything, and watching. It’s really interesting.” Robert then ended his response by noting that he wants to be around for as long as possible to enjoy raising his baby girl.
This recent interview is not the first time Robert has confirmed that he has been enjoying fatherhood with his baby daughter, as last year, while talking about fathering Gia, he said, “It’s great!” Additionally, the same year, the dad of seven gushed over Gia again: “She’s just an adorable young, little innocent thing, it’s just amazing.”
The interviewer also briefly brought up Al Pacino, who, like Robert, welcomed another baby in his latter years, and Robert De Niro shared his happiness for his co-star and friend.
