Al Pacino Beats Pal Robert De Niro’s Record As Expectant Dad At 82

Move over, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino is coming for your record!

Pacino will soon join the old dads’ club as he is expecting his fourth child with his girlfriend, Noor Alfallah, who is a few weeks shy of birthing the baby. With this news, the 83-year-old will be taking over from his pal De Niro, who welcomed his seventh child with his partner Tiffany Chen on April 6 at age 79.

Pacino and Alfallah have proven that their love transcended time and age with the news of their pregnancy. According to TMZ, who initially disclosed the information, the Golden Globe-winning actor’s girlfriend is already eight months pregnant.

To that end, the outlet noted that the octogenarian would be 100 when his child — whose gender is yet to be revealed — turns 18. While the expectant parents were linked in April 2022, when they were caught grabbing dinner together, several insiders have claimed that they have been quietly dating since the pandemic year.

As for De Niro, The Blast observed that the two-time Oscar winner touched on his experience as a father during a promotional interview for his recently released comedy film “About My Father” earlier this month. 

When asked what his love language as a father is, the “Once Upon a Time in America” star revealed that even though he believed in loving his children openly, he had to be “stern about stuff” sometimes. He added: 

“There’s no way around it with kids. I don’t like to have to lay down the law and stuff like that. But, [sometimes] you have no choice. And any parent, I think, would say the same thing. You always want to do the right thing by the children and give them the benefit of the doubt, but sometimes you can’t.”

Despite that ideology, the actor does not consider himself a “cool dad,” he declared as much when he stated, “You know, my kids sometimes disagree with me, and they’re respectful. My daughter, who’s 11, gives me grief sometimes, and I argue with her. I adore her, but, you know. And my youngest now, that’ll be more to come. But that’s what it is.”

It is worth noting that De Niro had kept the news of the pregnancy and Chen’s subsequent childbirth under wraps until recently. The biggest hint anybody got was when Chen was spotted with a baby bump as she and her man exited Giorgio Baldi after a date at the Santa Monica restaurant in March. 

The film producer and the “Joker” star were first romantically linked during the latter’s 78th birthday in 2021 and have since embarked on multiple vacations since becoming official.

Besides welcoming kids in their old ages, Pacino and De Niro have enjoyed a decades-long camaraderie that began after they met in 1968. While experiencing success in their early 20s at the same time in Hollywood undoubtedly gave them a foundation for a friendship, the realization that “similar things” seemed to happen to them deepened their connection.

That connection has since extended into the films that they worked on together, including “Heat,” “Righteous Kill,” and “The Irishman.” Martin Scorsese, who directed “The Irishman,” could not help but gush about the iconic duo in 2019, saying:

“What we see in the film is their relationship as actors, as friends over the past 40, 45 years. There’s something magical that happens there.”

In the same year, during an interview, Pacino spoke about his companionship with De Niro, explaining, “We’re close. We don’t see each other very much, but when we do, we find we share certain things. In a way, I think we’ve helped each other throughout life.”

The renowned “House of Gucci” co-stars never miss an opportunity to express their affection for each other. For example, during the same 2019 interview, they shared a sweet hug, and Pacino did not let his friend go without reminding him that he loved him.
