Robert De Niro and his wife Grace Hightower welcomed a new baby daughter, Helen Grace, early Friday,People Magazine has confirmed. It is the second child for the pair.

Helen, born via a surrogate, joins big brother Elliot, 13, just in time for the holidays. De Niro's rep told the New York Post that the baby is “a healthy 7 pound, 2 ounce girl.”

This will be the sixth child for the 68-year-old De Niro. He has twin boys with ex-girlfrend Toukie Smith and two children from previous relationships, one being ex-wife, Diahnne Abbott.

De Niro and Hightower, 56, met in 1987 and married ten years later. After hitting a rough patch, the pair managed to reconcile and renew their vows in front of friends and family at a romantic ceremony back in 2004.

    Lord have mercy, a father at 68 years old. He'll be 75 before that kid even enters middle school.

    Congrats to him but he'll probably be dead before the graduates from high school.

    Well at least he's got the money to support the child, and put her through college, so she should be a positive addition to society and not some crack baby born into poverty destin for the welefare life!

    It is stupid. Neither one of them have the time left or energy to deal with another baby. I guess money buys a good nanny but that child will think the nanny is mama until it gets old enough to figure it out. By then, dad will be gone and mom will be older than dirt.

    No one has babies at 56 and 68. They got someone else to have it for them. Geez people, can you please stop procreating past the age of 35?

    YIKES! Poor baby she better live it up with daddy for the next few years. He's going to be knocking on death door by the time she's 10!

    At future dance recital: "Um can you wake up my dad... actually let him sleep, just make sure he's not dead!"
