No, it’s not a mistake; you’ve read the title well: Robert De Niro and wife welcome their second baby, according to Us Weekly. The couple resorted to a surrogate mother in order to conceive their baby girl who was 7 lb. and 2 oz. at the time of the birth.
The 68-year-old actor did not make any comments in the press, but reporters at Us have found out that the DeNiro and wife Grace Hightower De Niro, 56, will name the baby Helen. The two have one more son, Elliot, who was born on March 18, 1998.
DeNiro’s love life has been rather tumultuous. In 1997, he married Grace Hightower whom he divorced in 1999. The divorce was never pronounced and in 2004 they decided to renew their vows.
This wasn’t the only troublesome relationship that the “New Year’s Eve” actor has had. He was also romantically involved with Diahnne Abbott with whom he has a son, Raphael. The Oscar winner also adopted Diahnne’s daughter from a previous relationship, Drena.
Wait, there is more to it! The actor was also involved in a relationship with former model Toukie Smith. Their love was so big that the couple decided to conceive a child with the help of the in vitro fertilization. In the end, DeNiro and Toukie were blessed with twins who were delivered by a surrogate mother in 1995. The children’s names are Julian and Aaron.
Normally, we would be outraged by the sight of so many affairs and children news coming from an A class actor like Robert DeNiro. Come to think about it, the guy has really good genes, so it’s probably a good thing to leave a few heirs behind. If you don’t believe me, have a look at Raphael DeNiro’s pictures.
