UPDATE: Robert Downey Jr. confirmed the happy news himself via Facebook Wednesday. "After 9 months of intensive development, Team Downey is pleased to announce our 2014 fall/winter project. Principal photography commenced 11-14 and will continue until she says, 'Dad! You are embarrassing me...I'm 30, this has gotta stop.' Yep...Avri Roel Downey joined the party @ 3:22 a.m. on November 4th...she's 7lbs even, spans 20 inches, and is accompanied by a variety of Susan's traits that have seemingly overwritten my 'junk DNA,'" he wrote. "I'll post pics here + there when I'm not too busy staring..."
Congratulations are in order for Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey!
The Team Downey producing partners and spouses of nine years have welcomed their first daughter, People reports. The newborn joins big brother Exton Elias Downey, who was born on Feb. 7, 2012, in L.A. The Avengers: Age of Ultron star also has a son, Indio Downey, 21, with his ex-wife Deborah Falconer.
The actor, 49, and producer, 40, have been married since August 2005.
Robert announced that his third child was on the way via Twitter in July 2014. In a follow-up Facebook post, the proud papa-to-be told his 22 million fans, "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." Weeks later, he joked to E! News, "I've never had a daughter before, so I don't know what really prepares a dad. I'm asking around. But I did my part and now I'm just going to show up and do what I'm told."
