Speaking of fatherhood in the interview, the 79-year-old politely corrected interviewer Brittnee

Blair when she mentioned De Niro’s previously known six children.

De Niro has six children from previous relationships but it’s unclear who the mother of his seventh child is.

The “Godfather” actor also shared that he relishes being a father, saying that he believes in

“being loving with (his) kids” even if he has to be “stern about stuff” at times.
