Robert De Niro revealed earlier this week that he had become a father again at age 79. On Thursday, CBS Mornings displayed a photo of baby No. 7, who is named Gia Virginia Chen-De Niro. De Niro had the child with partner Tiffany Chen, a martial arts instructor who met De Niro in 2015 during filming of the movie The Intern, per People. They were first spotted as a couple in 2021. CBS' Gayle King says she spoke to De Niro over the weekend and asked him for the photo. "They're over the moon," she says.

A reporter for ET Canada interviewing Robert De Niro about the challenges of fatherhood got more information than anticipated. "I know you have six kids," Brittnee Blair said to the 79-year-old. "Seven, actually," De Niro responded. "I just had a baby." His reps have confirmed the seventh child to outlets including People, though there's no word on who the mother is. De Niro's oldest child, daughter Drena, is 51. He is also father to Raphael, 46; twins, Julian and Aaron, 27; Elliot, 24; and Helen Grace, 11, per the AP.

The Oscar winner had his first six children with three different women, two each with ex-wife Diahnne Abbott, ex-girlfriend Toukie Smith, and ex-wife Grace Hightower. De Niro is not currently married. He was talking to ET Canada while promoting his latest film, titled, ironically, About My Father. See the trailer. (More Robert De Niro stories.)
