Older celebrity dads
Robert De Niro
Robert De Niro, 79, revealed he had welcomed his seventh child earlier this month. The Oscar-winning actor shared the news during an interview with ET Canada about his forthcoming film About My Father.
Asked about being a father-of-six, he corrected the reporter, saying: "Seven, actually … I just had a baby."
Representatives for De Niro later confirmed the happy news to PA news agency.
Bernie Ecclestone had his fourth child in 2020 at the grand age of 89. The former Formula One boss and his wife, Fabiana Flosi, then 44, welcomed a son.
"We have a son named Ace. I am so proud," he told Blick magazine about the new arrival.
Ecclestone already has three daughters with his previous partners.
Michael Sheen, 54, became a father for a second and third time in his 50s after welcoming two children with his girlfriend Anna Lundberg, 27, who shared the news on Instagram.
The Twilight actor is already father to a 24-year-old daughter, Lily Mo, whom he shares with actor and former girlfriend Kate Beckinsale.
It’s safe to say the world was pretty surprised when news broke that Simon Cowell was expecting his first child at 54.
The media mogul welcomed his first son, Eric, with partner Lauren Silverman back in 2014. And despite being in his seventh decade, the 63-year-old hasn’t ruled out the idea of adding to his brood.

At 51, Hugh Grant swapped bachelorhood for babyhood after becoming a first-time father to daughter, Tabitha, now 11, in September 2011 with his then on-off girlfriend Tinglan Hong.
Son Felix came along two years later. He may have been late to fatherhood, but Hugh has since become a dab hand and, at 62, is now a father-of-five after welcoming three more children with wife Anna Eberstein.
Cooing over his kids on the Ellen Degeneres Show, Grant said: “It changes your life. Now that I have a child, it is life-changing. I recommend it. Get some!”
Alec Baldwin hasn't let being in his sixties put him off adding to his brood. The actor, 65, and his wife Hilaria Baldwin share seven children together, having recently welcomed their youngest daughter Ilaria Catalina Irena in September 2022.
The couple's other children include – Carmen, nine, Rafael Thomas, eight, Leonardo, six, and Romeo, four, Euduardo, two, Lucia, two, Maria Lucia, also two (born via surrogate) and Ilaria, eight months. Baldwin also has a 27-year-old daughter, Ireland, with ex-wife Kim Basinger.

George Clooney, now 62, had only just blown out the candles on his 56th birthday cake when he welcomed twins Ella and Alexander with wife Amal Clooney in 2017.
Bruce Willis, now 68, is totally out-daughtered, that’s for sure. His eldest girls Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah, who he shares with ex-wife Demi Moore, are all now adults, but the Die Hard actor wasn’t ready to give up the nappy changing and welcomed a third daughter, Mabel Ray, at the age of 57.

There must be something about rock stars having babies in later life. Just after Rod Stewart welcomed his youngest, son Aiden, at the age of 66 in 2011, his daughter, Kimberly, made him a grandfather.
