Robert De Niro revealed he’s become a father to his seventh child at the age of 79 and has now shared a sweet photo.

The actor announced the news that he has welcomed a new baby in an interview with ET Canada.

ET Canada presenter Brittnee Blair stated during the chat: “I know you have six kids,” to which the actor replied: “Seven, actually. I just had a baby.”

“But, [sometimes] you just have no choice.

“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.”

He went on to share a photo of the little one, while also revealed her name is Gia.

The photo of the little girl appeared on a CBS Mornings segment on Thursday and shows Gia in someone’s arms, wearing a pink-and-white striped footed onesie.

She was born on 6 April, co-host Gayle King said, telling viewers: “Robert De Niro and his partner, that’s Tiffany Chen, are over the moon about this little girl,” King said. She added that Robert told her “this baby is planned.”

“I’m happy for both of them.”
