A baby girl for Robert Downey Jr.


The filmmaking couple already have two-year-old son Exton and Robert also has 21-year-old Indio from a previous relationship.

Now the first little girl joins the family, People magazine reports – although details of when exactly she was born or what she is called are yet to be confirmed.

Last week Robert (49) collected the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film at the BAFTA Los Angeles event.

During his speech he mentioned his then-still-pregnant wife and joked the pregnancy had been “tough” oh him and that he required “self-prescribed mandatory bed rest”.

“It’s just the uncertainty of how nowadays you have all these things where you think you have much more of an understanding of what you’re going to get,” he continued during a heartfelt moment. “And then this little soul lets herself be known to you, and it’s just like: You don’t know anything. It’s great!”

Robert and Susan announced they were expecting in July. The Iron Man actor took to Twitter to tell fans the news. And in the message he pondered what his future daughter’s astrology sign might be.

“Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio? (sci)” he tweeted.
