(CNN) — Robert De Niro is a dad again, a representative for the actor confirmed to CNN on Tuesday.
Speaking of fatherhood in the interview, the 79-year-old politely corrected interviewer Brittnee Blair when she mentioned De Niro’s previously known six children.
De Niro has six children from previous relationships but it’s unclear who the mother of his seventh child is.
The “Godfather” actor also shared that he relishes being a father, saying that he believes in “being loving with (his) kids” even if he has to be “stern about stuff” at times.
The actor was previously married to Diahnne Abbott from 1976 to 1988 and they are the parents of two children, Drena and Raphael. In 1995 he welcomed twin sons, Aaron and Julian, with his girlfriend at the time, Toukie Smith. De Niro was also previously married to Grace Hightower before they split in 2018, and the pair are parents to son Elliot and daughter Helen Grace.
