The boys’ club in Robert Downey Jr.‘s life is about to get a little pinker! The actor, who is dad to two sons, took to Twitter to announce that he and wife Susan are expecting a daughter. “Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?” he shared. Downey and Susan are parents to to 2-year-old son Exton Elias, and Downey is dad to 20-year-old son Indio from a previous marriage. Baby girl isn’t the only fall debut happening, though: The Judge, another joint project for the couple, is set to hit theaters in October.
It’s baby #2 for Robert Downey, Jr., and he’s sticking with familiar ground — another boy! The actor and his wife Susan welcomed their first child together today. Son Exton Elias Downey weighed 7 pounds, 5 ounces and was 20 inches long. Exton is the second son for Downey, who is also dad to 18-year-old Indio.
Being excited about the arrival of a new baby is understandable. Spilling the beans that baby-to-be is a boy on national television is forgivable. Giving away the name of that son? He may have slipped once, but Robert Downey Jr. isn’t making that mistake again! People reports that Downey told the media,“If I told you the name, then [wife Susan] would lop off my head with a machete,” at the opening of his most recent movie, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. He doesn’t mind sharing the nickname of baby boy-to-be, though, affectionately introducing Susan’s bump as “Bubba.”
Yep, good news is really tough to keep to yourself! In keeping with the spill-the-beans theme, Robert Downey Jr. has joined the list of celebs accidentally sharing the sex of their expected babies. Downey’s slip came in an interview with Jay Leno, where the actor revealed he and wife Susan are expecting … a son! Baby boys aren’t exactly new territory for Downey, who’s also dad to 18-year-old Indio with his ex-wife Deborah Falconer.
It’s been 17 years since Robert Downey Jr. has had to tackle diapers and midnight feedings, but the actor is ready to reprise that role! Downey and his wife, producer Susan Downey, recently announced that they’re expecting their first child early next year. This baby is a first for Susan but the second for Downey, who has a 17-year-old son, Indio, with ex-wife Deborah Falconer.
