Robert de Niro and Tiffany Chen attend their first event together since welcoming their daughter
Robert De Niro and Tiffany Chen made their first formal appearance together since welcoming their daughter last month.
The 79-year-old Academy Award-winner and his girlfriend attended the Vanity Fair x Prada Party during the 2023 Cannes Film Festival in Cap d’Antibes, France, on Saturday.
De Niro looked sharp in a suit as he posed for a few snaps alongside Tiffany, who wore dark glasses and a black dress under a black jacket.
Last week while speaking with CBS Mornings’ host Gayle King via a phone call, the Meet the Fockers star revealed their daughter was named Gia Virginia Chen-De Niro and was born on April 6, weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces.
De Niro said, ‘This baby is planned,’ adding that they both wanted a child and were ‘over the moon.’

‘She was brought here by love,’ Gayle said Robert told her in their phone call.
The outlet also shared a photo of their adorable baby girl.
The iconic actor shocked the world when he revealed he had ‘just had a baby’ in an interview with ET Canada – after Tiffany, who is believed to be 45 – was seen with a baby bump in March.
The ET Canada reporter asked De Niro about his six children – to which he corrected them and said ‘seven.’ Robert later explained to Gayle: ‘In that moment, I didn’t want to deny this baby.’
And though the news of the actor expanding his brood may have surprised fans, Robert told Page Six he was not surprised, saying, “How could you not plan that kind of thing?”
Robert shared his feelings about becoming a father again, saying, “I’m okay with it,” when Extra asked if he was excited. ‘I’m good with it,’ he added.
When asked if becoming a parent ever gets easier, the Taxi Driver quipped, ‘Never gets easier.’
The happy couple was photographed holding hands in July 2021, and in March of this year, she appeared pregnant when leaving Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, California.

The Godfather actor has six other children; Drena, 51, and Raphael, 46, with his ex-wife Diahnne Abbott, Elliot, 25, and Helen, 11, with ex-wife Grace Hightower, and twins Aaron and Julian, 27, with former girlfriend, Toukie Smith.
Tiffany and Robert are thought to have first met in 2015 when they worked on the film The Intern together. The film also starred Anne Hathaway as a workaholic CEO, with Robert working at her company as a senior intern.
Tiffany had a small role as a Tai Chi instructor who helped out Robert’s character.
Robert was spotted with Tiffany in August 2021 as they enjoyed a vacation in the South of France together.

The pair’s romance was evident as they were seen holding hands while strolling through the sunshine and were later seen kissing on a yacht.
They were also pictured together in New York in June and attended the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa on July 31, in pictures that appeared on social media but were later deleted.
At the time, the Raging Bull actor was locked in a bitter divorce battle with his now ex-wife Grace Hightower.
In April 2022, a judge ruled that his ex-wife, 66, should receive $1 million annually and that the couple would split the proceeds after selling their $20 million home.
