Robert De Niro and his partner Tiffany Chen wasted no time revealing the first image and name of the 79-year-old actor’s newborn seventh child, Gia Virginia Chen-De Niro, who they say was planned.
Gia was officially introduced to the world after an appearance of her very famous dad with Gayle King on CBS Mornings, who followed up on Monday’s reports of the child’s birth.
King was the first to post Gia’s picture and reveal the child’s name, which she obtained three days after the initial news broke.

De Niro and Chen reportedly planned for Gia and were “over the moon” about the newest addition to their family.
“They both wanted this baby,” she revealed. “They’re over the moon. She was brought here in love. He’s very psyched about it.”
