Now this is how to confirm that a baby is on the way.
Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?
— Robert Downey Jr (@RobertDowneyJr) July 9, 2014
Robert Downey Jr. tweeted Wednesday in announcing—in signature RDJ fashion—that he and wife Susan Downeyare expecting their second child—and first daughter—together. (Susan is also a Scorpio, while the proud dad is an Aries.) The couple, who have been married for nearly nine years, welcomed son Exton Elias on Feb. 7, 2012. Downey also has a 20-year-old son, Indio, from his first marriage. Then it was on to Facebook, for another witty communiqué:
The Iron Man star’s rep also confirms the happy news.
Shortly after Exton was born, Downey talked about the kind of father he pictured himself being down the road.
“Do I want to be a hero to my son? No,” the veteran thesp, whose role to Hollywood superstardom was a bumpy yet ultimately fruitful one, told Esquire. “I would like to be a very real human being. That’s hard enough… Hero, to me, is not applicable to the human experience.”
So maybe he saves his heroics for the big-screen, but there’s certainly nothing wrong with only human.
