The two stars of The Godfather are at an age where being an actual Godfather might be a tad old, let alone being a father.
Only a few weeks after his friend and fellow actor Robert De Niro, 79, welcomed his seventh child, Al Pacino will become a father for the fourth time, his agent announced.
Pacino and his 29-year-old girlfriend, Noor Alfallah, are expecting their first kid. Prior reports connected her to musicians Mick Jagger and Nicholas Berggruen, a millionaire. The actor, who turned 83 in April, is the father of three children: twins with his ex-girlfriend Beverly D’Angelo and a daughter with his ex-girlfriend Jan Tarrant.
D’Angelo reflected on her “unique” connection with Pacino and shared some of their children’s first-ever images earlier this month.
Although Beverly acknowledged being “deeply in love” and “one hundred percent in,” she never wed Pacino. The twins Olivia and Anton were born in 2001 and “uncoupled” in 2004.
She met Pacino and unintentionally fell in love with him when she married Italian duke Lorenzo Salviati.
De Niro, who has six previous children with three other women, is the father of Gia Virginia Chen-De Niro with girlfriend Tiffany Chen.
Earlier this month, De Niro amended a remark about his six children during an interview with ET.
He said he had seven kids, not six. “I recently had a baby,” he told ET.
Later, the actor’s agent confirmed that the star had welcomed a new family member.
Kim Cattrall, a co-star of De Niro, identified the mother as Chen.
Since 2021, De Niro and Chen have been a couple. They first connected while working together on the production of his 2015 movie “The Intern,” but they didn’t start dating until much later.
Other famous elderly fathers include:
Tony Randall famously had children late in life with his wife, Heather Harlan. They welcomed Julia at the age of 77 and Jefferson at the age of 78.
At 73, the Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger and his then-girlfriend Melanie Hamrick welcomed their eighth child, Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger.
At 89, Bernie Ecclestone, the former CEO of Formula One racing, and his wife Fabiana Flosi, welcomed their fourth child, Ace.
