Robert’s impromptu baby news was revealed during an interview with ET Canada this week. In talking about his children, the interviewing said, “I know you have six kids,” followed by the actor correcting her saying, “Seven, actually. I just had a baby.” Gia joins the De Niro family with Robert’s six other children: Drena, 51, and Raphael, 46, 27-year-old twin sons Aaron and Julian, Elliot, 25, and Helen, 11.
