August 31, 2011 — Robert Downey Jr. and wife, Susan, are expecting their first child together. The couple have been together for six years.
“Robert and Susan could not be more excited over this news,” Downey Jr’s rep told People Magazine. “They can’t wait to welcome this new baby into their wonderful family.” This will be the second child for the ‘Iron Man’ star, 46, who has a son, Indio, 17, with his ex-wife, Deborah Falconer.
“I think I will be wrist-deep in doo-doo within 18 months. I’m calling it right here,” Downy revealed, also saying he’s thinking he’ll have a girl. “I think we should probably try to have a girl because I don’t want another male entity to have to compete,” Robert said jokingly. “I don’t want Indio to feel there’s another boy in my life. But I don’t know what we’d have to do [to have a girl]. Do we have to put it in a spoon and hang it upside-down?”
“Congrats to RDJ. I love him,” said one Cleveland resident. “This is bigger than Beyonce,” tweeted another excited fan about the upcoming baby. What are your thoughts on Robert Downey Jr. and his wife expecting a child?
