Robert Downey Jr. announces his wife is pregnant

By Madeline Smith,

Actor Robert Downey Jr. took to social media sites Twitter and Facebook on Wednesday to reveal his wife, Susan Downey, is pregnant with a baby girl.

Initially he offered up a cryptic tweet, that was still fairly obvious in meaning, saying, "Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. girl. November. Scorpio?"

The Iron Man star then took to Facebook to provide a status that was a little bit more straightforward than his tweet. In the post, Downey wrote, "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."

Downey and his wife Susan have been married for nine years and had a son together in 2012 named Exton Elias, according to E! News.

Downey’s son from his first marriage, Indio, was recently very much his father's son when he was arrested for possession of cocaine.

Susan has told Harper’s Bazaar that her and Indio have a close relationship, despite being his stepmother.

Susan is a film producer, who worked alongside her husband on Sherlock Holmes and Iron Man. She told Bazaar that her husband is the perfect father, noting, “He's someone who has lived so much life yet has almost a Peter Pan kind of never-grow-up quality."

The couple’s daughter is expected in November, shortly after Downey’s new movie called The Judge comes out in October. He is currently reprising his role as Tony Stark while filming Avengers: Age of Ultron.
