Welcome, Iron Baby!
Robert Downey Jr. has become a father for the second time. Sherlock Holmes actor and wife Susan welcomed a baby boy, Exton Elias Downey this morning. Exton weighed in at 7lb 5oz and measured 20 inches long. This happy news was confirmed by his represantative to People magazine. A source said:
Everyone is healthy and they couldn’t be happier.”
Robert Downey Jr. has 18-year-old son Indio from his first marriage to Deborah Falconer.
Robert had previously revealed on live television he and Susan were expecting a son, much to his producer wife’s shock. Susan later said:
I could never really stay mad at him, but I can tell you it genuinely wasn’t something we planned to reveal.”
However, the Sherlock Holmes star, 46, managed to keep quiet about their name choices for the baby till the last moment. He joked recently:
If I told you the name, then she would lop off my head with a machete.”
I have so much respect for Robert Downey Jr. Isn’t he a real inspiration to people who think that once down, you can never get up again? The actor recently admitted impending fatherhood was making him consider slowing down – though he admitted it was unlikely to happen.
The happy father-of-two said:
Life is good. With a new baby on the way, maybe I ought to think about slowing down a little. But I can’t see that happening in the short term.”
Awww… If this Exton has 50% of his father’s talent and appearance, I will have a very fulfilled life! Congrats to the adorable Mr Downey and wife!!! Btw, I actually like the sound of the name….I’m so happy they didn’t name him Grape or somehow like Persian Blue.
