Robert Downey Jr., and his wife, Susan, are expecting their first child together. They have been married since 2005, and are very happy to be having a baby. Downey has a son, Indio, 17, so havng a baby around the house is going to quite a change.
“Robert and Susan could not be more excited over this news. They can’t wait to welcome this new baby into their wonderful family,” Downey’s rep told PEOPLE on Wednesday.
Downey, 45, and his wife, 37, are hoping for a girl, but are just blessed to be expecting. Many people believe that this child was planned, as Robert hinted at having a child last year. His career has been steady and it seems like a good time for him to give parenthood another go.
The Downey’s join the ever-growing list of 2011 celebrity-pregnancy-announcement. From Jennifer Garner to Beyonce, 2012 is going to be quite the year of new famous babies!
