Robert De Niro Dad at 79: The Actor Was Married When He…
Yes, it’s true. The legendary actor Robert De Niro has become a father again, at the age of 79. This news is causing a stir in the entertainment industry and among his fans.
It has been reported that the actor’s wife, Grace Hightower, gave birth to a baby girl via surrogate. This is their second child, as they are already parents to a son named Elliot, who was born in 1998.
This news is particularly surprising because De Niro was actually married when he had his first child, Drena, with his then-girlfriend, Diahnne Abbott. De Niro and Abbott got married in 1976, but divorced in 1988. He also has a son named Raphael with his ex-girlfriend, Toukie Smith.
De Niro and Hightower have had a tumultuous relationship over the years. They first got married in 1997, but separated in 1999 and filed for divorce. However, they reconciled and renewed their vows in 2004.
The birth of their new daughter is a happy moment for the couple, who have weathered their fair share of ups and downs. De Niro is famously private about his personal life, but he has always been vocal about his love for his children.
In an interview with The Guardian in 2016, De Niro spoke about how much being a father meant to him: “My children are the most important thing in my life. They’re my blood, they’re my heart. All the stuff I’ve done in my career, none of that means anything compared to my children.”
It’s clear that De Niro’s family is a top priority for him, and this latest addition is sure to bring him and Hightower even closer together. Congratulations to the new parents!
