Al Pacino, a father again at 83, how many children does he have?
The actor will be a father again, being for the first time together with the producer Noor Alfallah, with whom he began dating during the pandemic.
There have been a number of cases of veteran celebrities welcoming new members to their family in recent months. The latest who will soon be hearing the patter of tiny feet is Al Pacino. The legendary Hollywood actor is expecting what will be his fourth child at the ripe age of 83. His partner, Noor Alfallah, who is 29 years old, is eight months pregnant, according to US portal TMZ.
One of the actor’s agents confirmed the news which undoubtedly surprised the world of Hollywood. Pacino becomes one of several high-profile figures in the entertainment business to become a father at an advanced age.

Rolling Stones bandmates Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood both added new additions to their families late in life - the singer was 73 when he fathered his eighth child in 2016 while Wood and actress wife Sally Humphreys welcomed twins in 2016, two days before rock star turned 69.
