Al Pacino has welcomed his fourth child at the age of 83, according to his publicist.
The Hollywood star’s partner, 29-year old Noor Alfallah, has given birth to a son named Roman.
Pacino‘s publicist, Stan Rosenfield, confirmed the news to The Associated Press.
No other details, including when or where the baby was born, were released. The birth was first reported by TMZ.
Pacino described the news of Alfallah’s pregnancy as “special”, as he spoke about the impending arrival earlier this month.
In a video obtained by MailOnline, the Scarface star was asked if he is “excited” about the pregnancy by a photographer while out taking a stroll with a friend. Pacino replied: “It’s very special. It always has been. I’ve got many kids. But this is really special coming at this time.”
Pacino and Alfallah reportedly began dating last year.
She describes herself as a “raconteur” on her Instagram page and her IMDB page notes that she’s a producer on two movies currently in post-production, including “Billy Knight,” starring Pacino.
Roman is Pacino‘s fourth child, and his first with Alfallah.
The veteran film star also has a 33-year-old daughter, Julie Marie, with acting coach Jan Tarrant and twins Anton and Olivia, 22, with actress Beverly D’Angelo.
Pacino‘s baby news follows close on the heels of that of longtime friend and fellow Oscar-winner Robert De Niro. A representative for the ctor confirmed last month that De Niro had become a father for the seventh time at the age of 79.
They are among a host of celebrities embracing fatherhood later in life, including broadcaster Jon Snow, 75, who became a father again in March 2021 when he and his wife, Zimbabwean academic Dr Precious Lunga, had a baby boy by surrogate.
Rolling Stones singer Sir Mick Jagger had his eighth child, son Deveraux Octavian Basil, with Melanie Hamrick in December 2016 when he was 73.
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch was 72 when his daughter Chloe, with ex-wife Wendi Deng, was born in 2003.
In 2017, singer Billy Joel became a father again at 68 when his wife Alexis gave birth to their second child, Remy Anne, in New York.
Born in New York in 1940, Pacino is considered one of the greatest actors of the 20th century, and has won an Academy Award, two Tony Awards and a Primetime Emmy.
He received the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in 1992 film Scent of a Woman, and received nominations for numerous other works including The Godfather (1972), The Godfather Part II (1974), Serpico (1973), and The Irishman (2019) in which he acted alongside Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci and for which he received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor nomination.
