While reading the New York Times yesterday I came across an item of interest. I like to check out the wedding section of the paper and this wedding announcement caught my eye.
Claudine Dominique DeMatos, a daughter of João DeMatos of New York and the late Margarett Ann Dufanal, who lived in Port Washington, N.Y., was married Saturday evening to Raphael Eugene De Niro, the son of the actors Robert De Niro and Diahnne Abbott-Copeland, both of New York. The Rev. Dianne Coverley, a nondenominational minister and marriage officer in the Bahamas, officiated there at a private estate in Nassau.
The bride and bridegroom, both 31, are associate brokers at Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate in New York, working together in the sales unit called the DeNiro Group.
I couldn’t believe that I finally got to see a picture of Robert De Niro’s son Raphael.
I’ve been a long time fan of Robert De Niro. Robert De Niro married actress Diahnne Abbott during the 70’s and they had a son Raphael. They’re divorced now. Robert also adopted Diahnne’s daughter, Drena, from a previous marriage. By the way Diahnne Abbott is the cousin of singer Gregory Abbott, who had the hit single Shake You Down back in the 80’s.
Congrats to the bride and groom.
