De Niro and his rumored girlfriend, Tiffany Chen, are set to welcome their seventh child sometime in 2023. No other details are known, but his rep confirmed the baby’s arrival on May 9, 2023.

Who is Tiffany Chen?

Tiffany Chen is the rumored girlfriend of Robert De Niro as they were first seen together in 2021. FYI she is not to be confused with another entertainment industry-current Tiffany Chen who is 64 in 2023 at the time of writing.

comedy film premiere about my father On May 9, 2023, De Niro’s co-star Kim Cattrall apparently confirmed their relationship when asked how she felt about their newborn child. “God bless her. His significant other, Tiffany, is such a beautiful woman,” Catterall told Xtra! She had come on the sets once with her family to watch the film and she was very beautiful and lovely. I’m happy for both of them.”

According to an anonymous source cited by People On May 10, 2023, the actor and Chen live together in Los Angeles, where De Niro “maintains a busy work schedule.” The insider revealed: “He wrapped wise Guys earlier this year. He was very focused and energetic during the filming. Just so professional and efficient. Truly a master of acting.” He added that “Tiffany seemed supportive” and “visited the set” where her partner was working: “He seemed excited to be around her.”

Chen is a martial arts instructor and apparently, she and De Niro met during the filming of Intern Together, a buddy-comedy film in which he starred alongside Anne Hathaway. It was written and directed by Nancy Meyers. They sparked romance rumors in August 2021 when they were spotted on a PDA-filled vacation in the south of France. They were later pictured kissing on a yacht in photographs obtained by the Daily Mail (see them here); The $108 million, $200 million yacht was owned by Australian billionaire James Packer and business partner of De Niro, who was once linked to Mariah Carey.

On Tuesday, May 9, 2023, De Niro’s rep confirmed to Page Six that the actor had welcomed his seventh child at age 79. He previously made headlines after correcting an ET Canada reporter who said he was a father of six children, clarifying he’d “just had a baby”. “I know you have six kids,” the reporter glared, but De Niro interrupted with “Seven, actually.” “I just had a baby,” he revealed. “I mean, there’s no way around it with kids. I don’t like to lay down laws and things like that. But, [sometimes] You don’t have a choice,” he explained in the interview. “And any parent, I think, would say the same thing. You always want to do the right thing by kids and give them the benefit of the doubt but sometimes you just can’t.”

while stepping out for the premiere of his latest film about my father, Page Six asked if he was surprised to be a father again. “No,” he replied evasively, adding that the pregnancy was “planned.” He said, “How can you not plan like this?” They did not confirm who the mother was but in late March 2023, footage captured by X17Online showed Chen with a baby bump. He then told Extra about welcoming his new bundle of joy: “I’m fine with it. I’m good with it.” However, he added that it’s “never easy.”

actor’s other about my father Co-star Sebastian Maniscalco congratulated the veteran actor on joining their family as a new member. “I was informed today that she had a child, I didn’t know she was going to have a child, but yes, God bless her,” Manichelko told Excessive, “He’s a very soft-spoken person who loves spending time with his family and I’m happy for him.”
