Robert De Niro’s co-star Sebastian Maniscalco is excited about the actor becoming a father again at the age of 79.
At the premiere of his new movie “About My Father” on Tuesday night, Maniscalco called Page Six “Wonderful”. “I learned today, like everyone else.”
Earlier on Tuesday, the Oscar-winning actress confirmed she has given birth to another child, but did not reveal the name or gender of the newest family member.
De Niro also did not reveal the name of his mother, but his much younger girlfriend, martial arts instructor Tiffany Chen, was spotted with a baby bump last month.
The couple met on the set of “The Intern” in 2015 and were spotted on a trip to Spain the following year.
The actor’s latest bundle of joy joins a large group of people aged 51 to 11.

Playing De Niro’s son in “About My Dad,” which is loosely based on his relationship with his own father, Salvatore Maniscalco, Sebastian feels like he has something in common with the iconic actor.
“I have two children too,” he explained. “I am an older father, I am 50 years old, I have a 3-year-old son, so I know how to be an older father. I’m not as active as some of the young men out there but yes, congratulations to him and his family. This is a special moment.”
Anders Holm, who starred in “About My Father” and worked with De Niro on “The Intern,” was equally enthusiastic.
“Hey man, I love him,” she said excitedly. “I have a one and a half year old child. Hope we can get the kids together and have a good time!
De Niro himself seemed to take everything step by step.
When Page Six asked if she was surprised by her late arrival, she firmly replied “no”, adding that the pregnancy was “planned”.
“How could you not plan something like that?” He said on Tuesday.
Other stars at the premiere included “Sex and the City” alum Kim Cattrall, “Succession” star David Rasche and “The Lost Husband” star Leslie Bibb.
