In a conversation with AARP The Magazine, De Niro talked about what fatherhood has been like since he welcomed his seventh child in May. The actor said, “I'm an 80-year-old dad and it's great.

Adding to his fondness for his baby, De Niro stated that he wants to be around as much as he can to enjoy her company.

I don't know where it's gonna go later when she gets older, but she's thinking, she's observing everything and watching, really interesting. I wanna be around for as long as I can to enjoy it, enjoy her.
