Robert De Niro hopes his granddaughter will learn English and Chinese

Robert De Niro hopes his granddaughter will learn English and Chinese

Robert De Niro wants his daughter to learn Chinese and English.

The 80-year-old actor – who adopted Trena, 52, Rafael, 47, and twins Julian and Aaron, 28 – with ex-wife Dianne Abbott and Elliott, 25, and Helen Grace, 11. He – with his second wife Grace Hightower – welcomed a baby girl, Jia, with his Chinese girlfriend Tiffany Chen earlier this year, and hopes the boy will be raised learning both of his parents’ mother tongues.

He told Rolling Stone: “Yes, she’s half Chinese. I want to try to teach her Chinese, show her nursery rhymes in English and Chinese. I hope she learns both.”

Al Pacino, 83, welcomed Roman with girlfriend Noor Alballah just months after Robert became a dad again, but the ‘Godfather Part II’ actor admitted he had no idea he was going to be a dad again. They were “delighted” to hear the news and promised to talk about it the next time they got a chance to see each other.

He said: “I didn’t know he was going to have a baby! I didn’t know how he was, but I was happy for him and I wish him well. I don’t know what it was about “Al’s baby, but we’ll talk about it when I see him.”
