De Niro and Chen welcomed Gia on April 6, 2023. However, he didn't reveal the news of his baby girl's birth until over a month later during an interview with ET Canada.
When asked about his six children, the two-time Oscar winner corrected the interviewer and said, "Seven, actually."
"I just had a baby," he shared, though he didn't provide any further details at the time about the little one.
"I'm okay with it. I'm good with it," he said, adding that raising children "never gets easier" no matter what age you are.
