Robert De Niro is a father to a girl again at 68




Here are six words we never thought we'd be writing: Robert De Niro is a father again. Wait, does "De Niro" make it seven? Anyway, that's interesting because he's 68 and his wife, Grace Hightower, is 56. So naturally they used a surrogate mother, the AP reports. It's the hot new boutique gift item!

The 7-pound, 2-ounce girl is named Helen Grace Hightower and she is the couple's second child. Their son, Elliot, is 13. The Hollywood legend has four other children from previous relationships: daughter Drena, 40, and son Raphael, 35, with former wife Diahnne Abbott, and 16-year-old twin sons Julian Henry and Aaron Kendrik, born via surrogate with ex-girlfriend model and actress Toukie Smith.

The Juice* loves good baby news as much as the next person, but having a baby at 68? It's a good thing they're rich enough to hire the best nannies, because the 3 a.m. feedings would probably kill Bobby.
