Robert De Niro, 79, and his girlfriend Tiffany Chen, 45, are spotted heading to NYC fertility clinic
Robert de Niro and his girlfriend have been spotted popping into a fertility clinic in New York City – just days after having his seventh child.
The actor, 79, was seen dotting on Tiffany Chen, 45, as they headed into an NYU Langone fertility clinic in Midtown East on Friday.
The Goodfellas actor announced the recent birth of his seventh child earlier this week during an interview with ET Canada, who asked him what it was like to be a father-of-six, which he corrected was now seven.
The multimillionaire cut a causal figure on Friday, wearing a gray zip-up jacket, black gym shorts and matching black shoes. He accessorized the look with a gray face mask and a baseball hat.
He brought some light reading material with him to the clinic, as he had a newspaper tucked up under his arm, and a small bottle of Poland Springs water.
Chen also chose comfort, as she too was seen wearing black leggings and a black zip-up jacket. Much like her boyfriend, she wore sunglasses and a face mask and tied her long tresses in a low ponytail.

Yesterday, de Niro confirmed he welcomed a daughter with his partner Tiffany Chen, also revealing her name – Gia Virginia Chen-De Niro.
She was born on Thursday, April 6, weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces, he told CBS Mornings‘ host Gayle King via a phone call.
‘This baby is planned,’ Robert said, adding that they both wanted the baby and are ‘over the moon.’
‘She was brought here by love,’ Gayle said Robert told her in their phone call.
The iconic actor shocked the world when he revealed he had ‘just had a baby’ in an interview earlier this week – after Tiffany, who is believed to be 45 – was seen with a baby bump in March.
Gayle revealed that she had interviewed Robert on Saturday with Sebastian Maniscalco about his new movie About My Father.
During the interview, she asked him a question if his kids ever said he was embarrassing him, to which he responded ‘All the time.’
Gayle called him on Wednesday after the news about his newborn baby was revealed, asking him why he did not tell her at time, to which he said it didn’t come up in the interview.

And though the news of the actor expanding his brood may have been a surprise to fans, Robert told Page Six at the event that he was not surprised to become a dad again and that the pregnancy with girlfriend Tiffany was ‘planned.’
‘How you could not plan that kind of thing?’ he asked. He also shared his feelings about becoming a father again.
‘I’m ok with it,’ the actor told Extra when asked if he was excited. ‘I’m good with it.’ When asked if becoming a parent ever gets easier the Taxi Driver quipped, ‘Never gets easier.’
The Godfather actor has six other other children; Drena, 51, and Raphael, 46 with his ex-wife Diahnne Abbott, Elliot, 25, and Helen, 11, with ex-wife Grace Hightower, and twins Aaron and Julian, 27, with former girlfriend, Toukie Smith.

Tiffany and Robert are thought to have first met in 2015 when they worked on the film The Intern together.
The film also starred Anne Hathaway as a workaholic CEO, with Robert working at her company as a senior intern.
Tiffany had a small role as a Tai Chi instructor who helps out Robert’s character.
Robert was spotted with Tiffany in August 2021 as they enjoyed a vacation in the South of France together.
The pair’s romance was evident as they were seen holding hands while strolling through the sunshine and were later seen kissing on a yacht.
They were also pictured together in New York in June and attended the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa on July 31, in pictures which appeared on social media but were later deleted.
At the time, the Raging Bull actor was locked in a bitter divorce battle with his now ex wife Grace Hightower.
In April 2022, a judge ruled that his ex-wife, 66, should receive $1 million annually and that the couple will split the proceeds after selling their $20 million home.
