“When I look at her, all difficulties and tensions fade out,” he continued. He continued, “So to be with her in the present is a wonderful delight and relief”. The actor from “The Godfather Part II” and “Taxi Driver” stated that having his family “all be together” means “everything” to him.

Drena, 56, and Raphael, 47, are the actor’s children from his first marriage to Diahnne Abbott, which lasted from 1976 to 1988. He was in a relationship with then-girlfriend Toukie Smith, and delivered twin sons, Aaron and Julian, into the world in 1995.

Before their 2018 divorce, De Niro was also married to Grace Hightower; the couple had a son named Elliot and a daughter named Helen Grace. De Niro remarked about Gia, “The kids all get a big kick out of her.” “The grandchildren even,” he went on. “She’s their aunt; they’ll soon be teenagers.”

He expressed his belief that Lily had a strong chance of winning and expressed his hope for that outcome.
