Al Pacino has welcomed his fourth child with his girlfriend Noor Alfallah.
It was announced just 2 weeks ago that the 83-year-old Godfather star was expecting a child with Alfallah, who is 29 years old.
Pacino’s publicist, Stan Rosenfield, confirmed the news to the Associated Press news agency.
The name of the new little one has also been confirmed as Roman, per Sky News.
Pacino has 3 other children – 33-year-old Julie Marie, and 22-year-old twins Anton and Olivia.
It comes after the news that the star reportedly harboured doubts about his ability to father a child and initially questioned the paternity of his girlfriend’s baby, leading him to request a DNA test for confirmation.
Sources close to the situation, with direct knowledge of the matter, spoke to TMZ.
At the age of 83, Pacino had encountered medical issues that would typically hinder a man from impregnating a woman.
Unaware of his girlfriend’s pregnancy until two months ago, the news came as a shock to the renowned actor.
Given his uncertainty, Pacino initially doubted that he could be the father of the child and subsequently insisted on a DNA test to ascertain the truth.
Noor Alfallah, his 29-year-old girlfriend, complied with his request, and the test results ultimately confirmed Pacino’s paternity.
Despite Pacino’s initial skepticism, the DNA test provided the necessary evidence, dispelling any doubts regarding his biological connection to the child.
