The actor is welcoming fatherhood once again as his wife Susan gave birth to their first child together on Tuesday.
The Iron Man is a dad again. Robert Downey Jr. and his producer wife Susan Downey welcomed their first child together, a boy, on Tuesday, February 7 at 7:24 A.M. in Los Angeles.
The baby weighs in at 7 lbs., 5 oz., is 20 inches long and is named Exton Elias Downey. "Everyone is healthy and they couldn't be happier," a friend of the couple said. Little Exton joins big brother Indio, 18, Robert's son from his previous marriage to Deborah Falconer.
The pregnancy was announced in August last year and the "Sherlock Holmes" star later revealed the sex of the baby in December. His wife was not keen on the idea, saying, "I could never really stay mad at him, but I can tell you it genuinely wasn't something we planned to reveal." Robert managed to keep the baby's name for a while though.
