Los Angeles: Hollywood icon Robert De Niro is a father again at the age of 68 after he and his wife welcomed a baby girl through surrogate.

Little Helen Grace is the second child for De Niro and Grace Hightower, who are also parents to 13-year-old son Elliot, reported  a website.

A representative for the Oscar winner confirmed the child's birth to the media.

 The 'Taxi Driver' star has four other children – two grown up children from his first marriage to Diahnne Abbott and 16-year-old twin boys with his ex-girlfriend Toukie Smith, also born via a surrogate mother.

The couple wed in 1997.
