Many were shocked by the news of Robert De Niro's divorce, but now he is ready to talk to the press on this topic.

'Grace and I have two wonderful children. We are now entering a transitional period in our relationship, and this is a difficult but creative process. I think Grace is a great mother and I ask everyone to respect our personal space', the actor told Us Weekly.

Recall, last week it became known that 75-year-old Robert De Niro is divorcing his wife, 63-year-old actress Grace Hightower. They have been married for 20 years.
