Recently “Godfather” star and Hollywood legend Robert De Niro garnered the rather dubious distinction of being the oldest father in Hollywood, as he welcomed his 7th child.
Not to be outdone, another Hollywood legend and alumnus from the “Godfather” franchise said ‘hold my Metamucil.’
Al Pacino, the legendary Italian gangster-actor is set to welcome his first child with 29 year-old girlfriend Noor Alfallah. The daddy-grandpa turned 83 in April, and now hold the distinction of being oldest dad in Hollywood. The guess is his is a record that won’t be broken. And a kid who will never play catch with his dad, but that’s another story.
Pacino already has three kids, all old enough to be parents themselves. He shares a daughter with his ex Jan Tarrant and twins with his ex, “National Lampoon Christmas Vacation” star Beverly D’Angelo.

De Niro has six other children with three other women, so at least Al has his buddy bested in that department.
De Niro revealed the news earlier this month.

Earlier this month, De Niro revealed the unexpected baby news when making an amendment to a comment about his six children, referenced in conversation.
“Seven, actually. I just had a baby,” he told ET Canada at the time.
A representative for the actor later confirmed to Fox News Digital that he had welcomed a new addition to his family.
De Niro’s friend and co-star Kim Cattrall, of Sex and the City fame said this:
“God bless him. His significant other, Tiffany, is such a beautiful woman. She came to the set once with her family and watched filming, and she was gorgeous and sweet. And I’m happy for both of them,” the “Sex and the City” actress told “Extra” at the premiere of their new movie, “About My Father.”
For Al Pacino, the road to where he is now relationally has been interesting to say the least. Beverly D’Angelo, who had twins with the “Scent of a Woman” star in 2001 previously had said:
My story with Al began 27 years ago, two artists meeting, falling in love. We lived together for seven years, had two children, broke up, but continued steadily on our journey as co parents – and came to share our lives with a deeper kind of intimacy, honesty and acceptance than a ‘traditional’ relationship would have allowed, (for us at least),”
“As for me and Al, it is a unique and profound friendship between two artists that endures to this day, through thick and thin, 27 years now of doing it our way, and there you have it,”
She was married when she unexpectedly met and fell in love with Pacino, and when her husband found out, his reaction wasn’t what you would expect.
Salviati wasn’t jealous when she revealed her new love but was instead mad that she found interest in an actor.
After explaining it was, in fact, the “Scent of a Woman” star who claimed her heart, Salviati said, “’Al Pacino, he’s fantastic. I love him. We divorce!'”
It is an interesting road that led to both De Niro and Pacino having such late-stage children, but in Hollyweird, anything is possible.
