Robert De Niro is currently unmarried but De Niro has been married twice and has six kids.

Robert Anthony De Niro Jr. is an American actor who goes by his professional alias Robert De Niro. De Niro is considered to be one of the best actors of his generation and an influential person too. De Niro has worked on multiple projects over the years. He is known for his roles in movies such as The Irishman, The Boy's Life, Heat, Casino, Brazil, The Mission, Wag the Dog, Goodfellas, Meet the Parents, and many more.

Unlike De Niro's stable Hollywood career, his personal life has been pretty tumultuous. He has been married twice and is the father of 6 children. The actor adores his children quite a lot and never fails to show how supportive he is towards them. In an interview with People Magazine, the actor expressed his thoughts on his children's decisions to follow in his footsteps. De Niro said, “For my kids, I tell them, ‘if you want to be an actor or you want to do this or that, that’s fine as long as you’re happy. ” He added, “Just don’t sell yourself short. That’s the most I would say — push yourself a little more and reach for what you really think it is you want to do. Don’t be afraid.”

During an interview with US Weekly in 2019, De Niro emphatically reiterated his love and support for his children. He said, “I love my children, just being with them,” “It’s not easy. Sometimes it’s fun, and you love your kids, and sometimes you want to kill them!” But, of course, it’s clear the man is only kidding about the killing part."
