In a truly unexpected response, Robert replied: ‘Seven, actually. I just had a baby.’
When asked whether he was excited about becoming a dad again, the Hollywood legend simply said in a recent interview: ‘I’m ok with it. I’m good with it.’
While About My Father co-star Sebastian Maniscalco had no idea Robert was becoming a dad again, Kim Cattrall voiced her support for the news.
She said: ‘God bless him, his significant other. Tiffany is such a beautiful woman.
‘She came to the set once with her family and watched filming, and she was gorgeous and sweet. I’m happy for both of them.’
