Al Pacino is expecting his fourth child at age 82, joining what we are dubbing the 'Celebrity OAP' gang. No, not old aged pensioners, they are the 'Celebrity Old Age Papas'.

Yes, it seems that for some older celebrity men, age is just a number when it comes to procreating in their senior years. It's a case of the more the merrier, and with all that wealth, nannies and housekeepers, parenting is that much simpler.

Scarface actor Al is due to become a father again with his 29-year-old girlfriend Noor Alfallah, who is eight months pregnant, the couple's representative told TMZ.

It will be Noor's first baby. However, Al is already dad to three children from previous relationships: the star shares twins Olivia and Anton James, 22, with actress Beverly D'Angelo, and has a daughter Julie, 33, with acting coach Jan Tarrant.

Noor previously enjoyed a romance with The Rolling Stones frontman, and Al's fellow 'Celeb OAP' Mick Jagger.

Only recently, actor Robert De Niro, 79, welcomed his seventh child with girlfriend Tiffany Chen.

In an interview with ET Canada, when asked about his six kids, De Niro corrected the interviewer, saying: "Seven, actually," adding: "I just had a baby." His other six children are Drena, Raphael, Julian, Aaron, Elliot, and Helen Grace, which he shares with three different women.

Drena, 51, and Raphael, 46, he shares with his first wife, Diahnne Abbott, 78, who he married in 1976 and officially divorced from in 1988. He welcomed twin sons Julian and Aaron, 27, with his former girlfriend, Toukie Smith, 70.

His second wife was Grace Hightower, 68 and they share Elliot, 24, and Helen Grace, 11. They briefly separated between the births of their two kids.

The Formula One boss Bernie and his wife Fabiana Flosi, 44, announced the birth of their first child, a boy named Ace, in 2020. "We have a son named Ace. I am so proud," Bernie, then 89, told Swiss German news organisation Blick.

Bernie had previously confessed he remained unfazed about welcoming a child at 89 years old. "I don't see there is any difference between being 89 and 29. You have got the same problems, I suppose," he told PA.

The British businessman has three daughters from previous marriages — Deborah, Tamara, and Petra Ecclestone. He is also a grandfather-of-five and has one great-grandchild.

The news that they were expecting a baby was wholly welcomed by the couple. "I think I'm a pretty good father," Mick has said in the past. "I have a nice affinity with children, not just my own. Kids keep you young and they keep you laughing."
