Al Pacino is set to join his actor buddy Robert De Niro in becoming a father later in life after news his girlfriend is eight months’ pregnant.
Pacino, 83, is reportedly expecting his first child with Noor Alfallah, 29, the pair having been romantically linked for around one year.
It would be the actor’s fourth child and the news comes in the same month that Pacino’s Heat and Godfather Part II co-star De Niro welcomed his seventh child at 79.
Pacino’s fourth child will be Kuwaiti-American film producer Ms Alfallah’s first, according to the Mail. But Pacino — for all of his credentials— has never been married. He told the Boston Herald in 2015: “Of course it’s possible. It seems beside the point, though.”
These are his three children.
Pacino’s oldest child is his daughter Julie, 33, whom he had with Jan Tarrant. He was with the acting coach from 1988 to 1989.
Meanwhile Julie, according to her website, is a Los Angeles-based photographer and filmmaker.
“As a child, I was always making little shorts with my friends and writing stories to act out,” she said in a 2014 interview.
She started a production company, Poverty Row Entertainment, and has won awards for her short films on subjects such as gender and sexuality. In 2020, she announced she would launch a second production company, Tiny Apples.
Pacino fathered twins with actress Beverly D’Angelo, who was his girlfriend from 1997 to 2003. She said on Instagram that the pair had been on good terms since their split.
Anton, his only son, was born in 2001 and recently turned 22. He has stayed out from the media spotlight and only been snapped with his father a few times in public.
Pacino’s second daughter is Anton’s twin, Olivia, who is more engaged on social media than her brother. “Happy Father’s Day to the most amazing father ever! ðð¥º you are my best friend,” she wrote on Instagram in June 2020.
Gossip website People said she celebrated her four-year anniversary with her boyfriend in November 2022.
