Hollywood stars Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, and Charlie Chaplin are some of the late-in-life fathers, proving that parenting knows no age.
Hollywood star Al Pacino is expecting a baby with his 29-year-old partner Noor Alfallah, who is eight months pregnant. The 83-year-old actor already has three children from his two previous relationships including a 33-year-old daughter Julie Marie with his ex-girlfriend Jan Tarrant and 22-year-old twins Anton and Olivia with his former partner Beverly D’Angelo.
The report of Pacino becoming a father at an older age comes just days after it was revealed that his The Irishman co-star Robert De Niro welcomed his seventh child at the age of 79.
