Robert De Niro welcomes sixth child at 68

Robert De Niro has become a father again at the age of 68.

The actor and his wife Grace, 56, welcomed their daughter through a surrogate mother.

The baby, whom they've named Helen Grace, weighed in at 7 lbs., 2 oz.

She is the second child for the couple, who have been married for 14 years and are already parents to son Elliot, 13. 


The Academy Award winning actor also has four other children: daughter Drena, 40, and son Raphael, 35, with former wife Diahnne Abbott, as well as 16-year-old twin sons Julian and Aaron, born via surrogate with ex-girlfriend Toukie Smith.

The couple met in 1987 and married ten years later.

After hitting a rough patch, Robert and Grace reconciled and renewed their vows in front of friends and family at a romantic ceremony in 2004.

Their marital troubles were played out in public with a 1999 divorce filing by the actor and a 2001 custody case over their son Elliot.

After taking their vows for a second time the couple became resolutely private about their renewed relationship.
