Robert Downey Jr.’s Wife Susan Pregnant With Second Child
Some very exciting news from the Downey family!
On Wednesday, July 9, Robert tweeted that he and his wife are expecting. According to the tweet, RDJ and Susan will welcome a baby girl later this year.
“Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?” the actor wrote in a somewhat vague tweet. Yay, an RDJ baby!
This baby will be the third for RDJ, and the second for him and Susan as a couple. What’s even more exciting? It’s Robert’s first little girl!
Robert further confirmed the news with a post on his official Facebook, writing: “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.”
On Feb. 7, 2010, Susan welcomed the couple’s first child together, Exton Elias Downey. Robert’s eldest son, Indio Downey, 20, is from his first marriage to Deborah Falconer. Sadly, Robert and Deborah divorced in 2004.
Robert and Susan met on the 2003 set of his film Gothika, and were later married in Aug. 2005. The happy couple must be so thrilled about their baby news!
RDJ’s Happy Baby News Comes After His Son’s Arrest
This happy news comes after Robert’s first son, Indio, was arrested for possession of cocaine on June 29.
The actor confirmed shortly after his son’s arrest that he and his family were working on getting the 20-year-old the help he needs.
It was later revealed that Indio had been checked into a Malibu rehab center by his parents. Hopefully, Indio is able to recover before his little sister arrives in November.
