A source close to the situation told TMZ that Pacino, 83, did not think he could get his 29-year-old girlfriend pregnant. The star demanded a child paternity test to prove the child was actually his.
Alfallah went through with the test and proved that the child did belong to Pacino.
The “Scarface” star also had no idea his girlfriend was actually expecting until just two months ago and was actually “shocked” to find out the news that he would now have four children.
Pacino’s reps have not made a comment on the situation.
News broke that the two were expecting a child together on May 30th. TMZ reported that the star’s girlfriend is eight months pregnant.
Claims came out shortly afterward that Alfallah is only with the actor for money. Several sources told outlets that the two had been dating since the pandemic.
“She mostly dates very rich older men … She has been with Al for some time and they get on very well,” a source had revealed. “The age gap doesn’t seem to be a problem, even though he is older than her father.”

In 2014, Pacino told the New Yorker Magazine how his father left him and his mother when he was two years old. This incident shaped his very own relationship with his children.
“It’s the missing link, so to speak,” he said. “Having children has helped a lot. 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. When I’m not, it’s upsetting to me and to them.”
The source alleged that Pacino “actually thought their relationship was over a long time ago” and has had “lawyers … working on this for months.”
Al Pacino shares daughter Julie, 33, with Jan Tarrrant. The actor even shares twins Olivia and Son Anton, 22, with Beverly D’Angelo.

Other notable star in Hollywood Robert De Niro welcomed his seventh child with his parter Tiffany Chen, and shared his support for his longtime friend.
De Niro is the proud father to newborn Gia Virginia Chen-De Niro with girlfriend Tiffany Chen, and has six other children with three different women.
De Niro’s co-star Kim Cattrall spoke on the news as well.
“God bless him. His significant other, Tiffany, is such a beautiful woman. She came to the set once with her family and watched filming, and she was gorgeous and sweet. And I’m happy for both of them,” the “Sex and the City” actress told “Extra” at the premiere of their new movie, “About My Father.”
“He’s a few years older than me,” 79-year-old De Niro told Hoda Kotb on the “Today” show Thursday, adding, “God bless him.”
Robert De Niro has been known for his unique friendships with celebrities like Morgan Freeman as of late, role in “Dirty Grandpa” with Zac Efron, and his comments against former president Donald Trump.
De Niro has been linked to Chen since 2021. They met on the set of his 2015 film “The Intern,” but did not enter into a relationship until many years later.
