One role Robert De Niro is experiencing all over again? Fatherhood.
But at 80, child rearing is looking a little bit different for the Killers of the Flower Moon actor, as he revealed that his girlfriend Tiffany Chen takes the lead when it comes to raising 6-month-old daughter Gia.
"It doesn't get easier," Robert said of parenthood in an interview with The Guardian published Oct. 16. "It is what it is. It's OK. I mean, I don't do the heavy lifting. I'm there, I support my girlfriend. But she does the work. And we have help, which is so important."
Baby Gia joins the Oscar winner's six other children: Drena, 51, and Raphael, 46—who he shares with ex Diahnne Abbott—27-year-old twin sons Aaron and Julian with ex Toukie Smith, as well as son Elliot, 25, and daughter Helen, 11, from his marriage to Grace Hightower.
Yet for the Goodfellas star, fatherhood is a joy that never grows old.
In fact, when asked which parts of being a dad he enjoys, Robert replied, "All of it! With a baby it's different to with my 11-year-old. My adult children. My grandchildren. It's all different."
But when Tiffany suffered from Bell's palsy during her postpartum recovery—landing her back in the hospital—the Casino actor was sure to be by her side.
"He was very sweet," she told CBS Morning's Gayle King in July. "He tried to say that he didn't see any difference, he didn't see any change. He was like, 'No…You look fine. Maybe you look a little stern.' And I'm like, 'Really? My whole face is melted on itself.' But he was very strong, very supportive."
Just days later, Gayle gave insight into Tiffany and Robert's life with their infant sharing that during a phone call, the Taxi Driver star told her "this baby was planned" and she was "brought here by love."
