Al Pacino, 83, and girlfriend Noor Alfallah, 29, are expecting their first child together.
The baby news comes less than a month after Pacino’s longtime pal and collaborator Robert De Niro, 79, announced the birth of his seventh child.
A representative for Pacino confirmed the pregnancy Wednesday to The Times, adding that the “Scarface” and “Godfather” star would not be releasing a statement at this time.
Pacino and Alfallah reportedly began dating last year. The latter describes herself as a “raconteur” on Instagram and boasts four producing credits on IMDb, including the upcoming Pacino film “Billy Knight.”
Pacino has three children: a 33-year-old daughter, Julie Marie, with acting coach Jan Tarrant and 22-year-old twins, Anton and Olivia, with actor Beverly D’Angelo.
In early May, De Niro casually revealed that he “just had a baby” after ET Canada asked about his six children and he replied, “Seven, actually.” The “Irishman” actor later divulged to “CBS Mornings” anchor Gayle King that he welcomed a baby girl named Gia with partner Tiffany Chen in April, adding that they are “over the moon about this little girl.”
While discussing his children with ET Canada, De Niro mused that he believes in being a “loving” but “stern” parent.
“There’s no way around it with kids,” the Oscar winner said.
“I don’t like to have to lay down the law and stuff like that. But [sometimes] you just have no choice. … You always want to do the right thing by the children and give them the benefit of the doubt, but sometimes you can’t.”
