Toukie Smith as Robert De Niro’s ex-wife

Robert De Niro has been known for many years to be a real playboy in the Hollywood scene as he has previously dated some of the hottest models and actresses that Hollywood has to offer. Though she has never been confirmed to be Robert De Niro’s ex-wife, it is known that the two were in a long-term relationship between 1989 and 1995. No official message was ever given about whether the American actress was married to the legendary actor, Robert De Niro and therefore the claims of her being Robert De Niro’s ex-wife remain to be just that, rumors and speculations! The American actress who has been speculated for long to be Robert De Niro’s ex-wife had however made some positive steps in ensuring the long-term longevity of their relationship when in 1995 she agreed to have kids with Robert De Niro. The kids would be begotten through an unnamed surrogate mother whose identity has remained hidden up until this present time. 

The American actress and Robert De Niro would, however, have personal issues in the course of the relationship and would end up separating some months before their twin kids; Aaron Kendrick and Julian Henry were delivered. The separation would bring to an end a relationship that had lasted for six years and even for years to come, Toukie Smith would still be speculated to be Robert De Niro’s ex-wife. The duties of raising their twin kids have been split between the two and it is known that they are still in good rapport for the sake of their children, this even after Robert De Niro remarried in 1997.

Starting off as a model for acclaimed fashion houses such as Versace, Chanel, and Patrick Kerry and even once showcasing for her late brother, Willi Smith, Toukie had not envisioned herself as one day becoming a famous American actress.  It came by chance is what we could say but even with that, speculated Robert De Niro’s ex-wife has not disappointed at all.
