Movie star Robert De Niro and his wife, Grace Hightower welcomed a baby girl yesterday, Access Hollywood announced. The baby, named Helen, was born via surrogate.
Hollywood actor Robert De Niro is a father again. He and wife Grace received their Christmas present earlier this year. As De Niro is 68 and Grace is 56, their little bundle of joy was born via surrogate. The representative of the couple confirmed the news to Access Hollywood and said the baby weighed in at 7 lbs., 2 oz at birth and is healthy.
De Niro and Hightower have another child together: a boy named Elliot, who is 13 years old. The actor has another child from his previous marriage, to Diahne Abbott: a son named Raphael. Before tying the knot with the famous movie star, Diahne already had a child, Drena, from a previous relationship. When they got married, Robert adopted Drena.
Not only did Robert De Niro have children from previous relationships, but baby daughter Helen isn’t the first of his children to be delivered via surrogate, either. In 1995, the actor and former model Toukie Smith, welcomed twins Julian and Aaron, who were conceived in vitro and born via surrogate.
One thing we can say for sure: Robert De Niro is crazy about kids!
