Robert De Niro doesn't do the ‘heavy lifting’ raising his baby with Tiffany Chen: It is what it is

Oct 17, 2023 12:08 PM IST

Robert De Niro admitted that it is his girlfriend Tiffany Chen who does the work when it comes to raising their 5-month-old daughter.

Robert De Niro welcomed a daughter with girlfriend Tiffany Chen a few months ago in April. In a new interview with The Guardian, the 80 year-old actor revealed that he is not the one to do 'heavy lifting' when it comes to taking care of his 5-month-old daughter, Gia Virginia. Meanwhile, two months after giving birth, Tiffany had opened up about the complication she faced after the delivery and her subsequent diagnosis of Bell's palsy.

What Robert De Niro said

In an interview with The Guardian, Robert talked about being a father to seven. He said, "It doesn’t get easier. It is what it is. It’s OK. I mean, I don’t do the heavy lifting. I’m there, I support my girlfriend. But she does the work. And we have help, which is so important."

The Raging Bull actor further responded when he was asked whether he enjoys fatherhood. “Of course I do. [I enjoy] all of it. With a baby, it’s different [than] with my 11-year-old. My adult children. My grandchildren. It’s all different. I don’t talk to the adult children the way I talk to my baby or the way I speak to my 11-year-old, though she’s pretty smart,” he said.
