Robert De Niro’s Family

Breaking the news of the new addition to his family, Robert De Niro confirmed to the world during a June appearance he made with ET Canada, that he is a father of 7 and not 6 as he had just welcomed his 7th child, which is a baby girl a couple of months back.

For those who know the veteran actor, Robert is one celebrity who tries as much as possible to keep his family affairs offline. And this includes keeping the news of his new baby girl to even his fans, until June, even though she was delivered in April.

It is possible to relate this side of the actor to the fact that he thinks he is not completely a ‘cool dad.’ During an interview with ET Canada, Robert was asked about his relationship with his children – which he replied, stating that he is sometimes harsh or strict with them because he just has to lay down the laws for his children not to abuse the benefit of the doubt he has given them. In his own words, he 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.” This Quotation was taken from et Canada. News

Diahnne and Robert De Niro got married in 1976 and they had their first son named

Raphael, a name derived from the hotel he was conceived in.


Robert De Niro also adopted Diahnne’s daughter from her previous marriage and he has included her in his career records, giving her roles and making her appear in the spotlight.

At the time they were romantically involved, Robert and Toukie had 2 children – twins, to be precise. Their children’s names are Julian Henry and Aaron Kendrick De Niro.

One thing fans of Robert De Niro do not know is that Robert Was involved with Toukie, the Model and mother of his twin sons before he got married to his second wife, Grace Hightower.

For Toukie Smith, Robert De Niro was her long-term partner back when she was trying to build a solid name for herself in the entertainment industry.

Tiffany Chen, a 45 year old martial arts instructor is the current lover and official girlfriend of the academic award-winning American actor, Robert De Niro. She is also the mother of his newly born baby, Gia Virginia, the 7th child Robert De Niro now has.

At first, after revealing the mother of his newborn daughter, and what the mother does as a profession, we thought Robert had finally turned away from dating actresses, but we were wrong.

Aside from being a martial arts instructor, Tiffany Chen takes up acting roles and you would be thrilled to know that Robert De Niro met Tiffany on the set of a 2015 movie, ‘Intern.’
