Imagine being a dad of a new baby when you're pushing 80!

Robert De Niro has become a dad for the 7th time at 79.

The Oscar-winning actor revealed the news during a interview with ET Canada where he was promoting his new film About My Father.

The interviewer asked him about being a "father of six" and he corrected her saying: "Seven, actually ... I just had a baby."

The film he's promoting, About My Father, is very family-orientated. It's about a man (played by Sebastian Maniscalco) encouraged by his fiancée to bring his father (Robert DeNiro) along to spend a holiday weekend with her wealthy and eccentric family.

In the interview, De Niro was asked about his own experiences of fatherhood.

"I don't think I've ever been a cool father. I'm ok. My kids disagree with me at times, they're respectful. My daughter is 11 and she gives me grief sometimes and I argue with her and adore her."

So his youngest child before now is 11 and his oldest is 51 - that's some age gap!

Not much is known about the mother of the new baby, although sources reckon it's Tiffany Chen, a Tai Chi instructor the actor has been linked to for the last year.

When asked about his arrival he said: "There will be more to come, but that's, you know - that's what it is."
