Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey expecting a baby girl

By Elizabeth Sudlow,

How many words do you need to announce a pregnancy? For actor Robert Downey Jr., he only needs seven. The Iron Man star tweeted Wednesday that he and his wife Susan Downey are expecting their second child together in November.

The message was short and sweet, “Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?.”

This will be the second child between Downey and his wife Susan as the pair had their first child, Exton, back in 2012.

Susan Downey is a film producer who actually met the actor on the set of Gothika, a project the both of them were working on in 2005 reports The Los Angeles Times. She is also one of the producers of Downey’s Sherlock Holmes series.

While this is Susan’s second child, this marks a third for Downey as he also has a second son named Indio, 20, from his prior marriage to Deborah Falconer, which ended in 2004.

Recently Indio has been earning some bad press as he was arrested for cocaine possession. It is no secret that his father dealt with drug addiction in the past.

“Unfortunately there's a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it," Downey said in response to Indio's arrest. "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.”
