Robert Downey Jr. & Wife Susan Are Expecting Their Second Baby
Another baby is being added to the Avengers family, at least, offscreen. Susan Downey and Robert Downey Jr. are expecting a baby, the Iron Man star announced Wednesday. A hearty congrats to them both! Downey Jr. made the announcement via his Facebook page, writing the following: "Um. I don't know if it's a 'man's world,' but I'm certain women run it. Susan and I are therefore delighted to announce we are expecting a baby. Girl. November. rdj"
He also announced it via his Twitter account, writing there "Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?"
This will be the second child for the couple — they have a son, Exton Elias Downey, age 2 — and the third for Downey Jr. himself, whose eldest son, Indio Falconer Downey, is 20.
Indio's been going through a rough time after being arrested for cocaine possession and reportedly suffering through addiction, with Downey Jr. responding to it all in a statement to People:
Unfortunately there's a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it. Also, there is a lot of family support and understanding, and we're all determined to rally behind him and help him become the man he's capable of being. We're grateful to the Sheriff's department for their intervention, and believe Indio can be another recovery success story instead of a cautionary tale."
Still, it's somewhat of a comfort to hear the family has some happy news during such a tough time.
