Hollywood luminary Al Pacino, at the ripe age of 83, is bracing for another exhilarating ride of fatherhood with his 29-year-old girlfriend, Noor Alfallah. TMZ recently reported the veteran actor's initial disbelief upon hearing the pregnancy news, stemming from his medically induced infertility.
However, after a paternity confirmation via a DNA test, the legendary "Godfather" actor is now set to welcome another addition to his family. Alfallah, currently eight months pregnant, complied with Pacino's request for paternity verification, reinforcing the bond between the couple.
This surprising news was later confirmed by the actor's manager during a conversation with TMZ.
A Love Blossoming Amidst Pandemic Woes
Alfallah and Pacino made their relationship public in April last year, having found solace in each other's companionship amidst the global pandemic.
Their blossoming romance didn't let the considerable age gap, which surpasses the difference between Alfallah and her own father, hamper their affectionate bond. A source close to the couple, preferring to remain anonymous, elucidated their relationship dynamic, saying, “She has been with Al for some time and they get on very well.
The age gap doesn’t seem to be a problem”. Being an integral part of the wealthy jet-set crowd, Alfallah seems well-acclimatized to Pacino's glamorous Hollywood lifestyle.
Pacino's Familiar Terrain: The Joys of Fatherhood
While the news of impending fatherhood might send many into a tizzy, it isn't uncharted territory for Pacino.
Already a proud father to 33-year-old Julie and 22-year-old twins Olivia and Anton from previous relationships, he is a seasoned veteran when it comes to the trials and joys of parenthood. In a 2014 interview with The New Yorker, Pacino extolled the virtues of fatherhood, revealing his deep sense of responsibility toward his children.
"I'm responsible to them. I'm a part of their life. When I'm not, it's upsetting to me and to them... And I get a lot from it. It takes you out of yourself," he confessed.
