However, in a happy turn of events, the couple decided to work out their differences, and by 2004, the divorce had been dropped, and they continued to live as husband and wife, having renewed their marital vows. Their relationship grew stronger, culminating in the birth of their second child, Helen Grace De Niro, via surrogate mother in December 2011.
