Al Pacino is about to become a father again at the age of 82. The legendary actor and his girlfriend, Noor Alfallah, are expecting their first child together, his rep confirmed to NBC News and PEOPLE. Alfallah, 29, is currently eight months pregnant with Pacino’s fourth child.
The couple has been dating since April 2022 and has kept their relationship low-key. They were first seen together at a restaurant in Venice, California and later at an art gallery in New York City. Alfallah is a producer who previously dated Mick Jagger from 2017 to 2018. Pacino is an Oscar-winning actor who starred in iconic films such as The Godfather, Scarface and The Irishman.
Pacino has three other children from previous relationships: Julie Marie, 33, with acting coach Jan Tarrant, and twins Anton and Olivia, 22, with actress Beverly D’Angelo. He has never been married but has been romantically linked to Diane Keaton and Meital Dohan in the past.
In 2014, Pacino opened up about fatherhood and how it changed him for the better. He told The New Yorker that he wanted to be different from his own father, who left his family when he was 2. “I consciously knew that I didn’t want to be like my dad. I wanted to be there. I have three children. I’m responsible to them. I’m a part of their life,” he said.
He also said that having children helped him get out of himself. “It takes you out of yourself,” he said. He added that he never said never to getting married, but it seemed beside the point. “I have no idea, but I never say never,” he told the Boston Herald in 2015.
Pacino’s baby news comes the same month that his longtime friend and former co-star Robert De Niro also welcomed another child. The 79-year-old actor revealed that he was now a father of seven while chatting with Entertainment Tonight Canada. “I just had a baby,” he said.
De Niro also shared some fatherhood tips with Access Hollywood. “Sometimes I don’t think people really know what being a good father is. But look, it’s a mystery. It’s a lot of excitement, but scary. And you do your best,” he said.
