Robert De Niro has admitted that his girlfriend does most of the heavy lifting with their newborn baby daughter, as he deals with fatherhood at the age of 80.

This year, the legendary actor and girlfriend Tiffany Chen welcomed baby girl Gia to the world.

De Niro has seven children at a range of ages - Elliot, Helen, Drena, Raphael, Aaron, Julian and Gia.

And, he says fatherhood "doesn't get any easier" as time goes on.

"It's going okay. You never know what's going to happen," he told The Guardian when asked about dealing with his baby girl.

"They surprise you. It doesn't get easier. It is what it is. It's okay. I mean, I don't do the heavy lifting. I'm there, I support my girlfriend. But she does the work. And we have help, which is so important."

De Niro reckons part of the key to dealing with so many of his children is treating them all as individuals.

"With a baby it's different to with my 11-year-old," he explained.

"My adult children. My grandchildren. It's all different. I don't talk to the adult children the way I talk to my baby, or the way I speak to my 11-year-old, though she's pretty smart."

De Niro is preparing for the release of Martin Scorsese's new epic Killers of the Flower Moon.

It is based on the non-fiction novel Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI written by David Grann. 

Official premise:

'Members of the Osage tribe in northeastern Oklahoma are murdered under mysterious circumstances in the 1920s, sparking a major BOI investigation directed by a 29-year-old J. Edgar Hoover and former Texas Ranger Tom White, described by Grann as "an old-style lawman."'
