Robert De Niro, who recently became a father again, revealed that he hasn’t yet introduced his baby daughter Gia Virginia Chen-De Niro to her six older siblings.

On Saturday ahead of Father’s Day, the New York native was asked if his older children have met their new baby sister.
“Not yet, but they will,” De Niro told People Magazine at a screening of his movie “A Bronx Tale” during the Tribeca Film Festival.

Katharine Narducci, who also starred alongside De Niro in his 1993 directorial debut, told People that she hadn’t yet met Gia. However, the 57-year-old actress praised her co-star as “an unbelievable father” and “a wonderful person.”
“I’ve seen him around his kids, and I know his daughter Drena, and they have a beautiful relationship,” Narducci said. “And I think he’s a great guy, you know, a great dad, a great person — a great human being.”
De Niro surprised fans when he revealed that he had welcomed his 7th child during an interview with ET Canada. While discussing his new movie “About My Father” and parenthood, De Niro was asked about his six children.
“Seven, actually,” he clarified. “I just had a baby.”
