“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.’ I’ll post pics here + there when I’m not too busy staring…”
Downey Jr. and his wife married in August 2005. The new daughter joins Downey and his wife’s son Exton, 2, and the actor’s son Indio, 21, from a previous relationship.
The “Iron Man” star, 49, announced the pregnancy in July on Twitter, writing, “Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?” He followed that up with a post on Facebook, saying, “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.”
In case you missed it:
It’s been an exciting few weeks for Downey, who was part of some huge Marvel news at the end of October. Marvel Studios announced 9 new movies, including “Captain America: Civil War“, which will star Downey and Chris Evans.
And now with Robert’s daughter’s arrival, it looks like it’s nothing but super duper busy times ahead having to juggle between baby and saving the world for our Iron Man!
Congratulations to the lucky couple and hello there Avri Roel Downey 🙂 She’s going to be the coolest kid in her school, we bet, since she’ll have all the “My dad is Iron Man” bragging rights.
Not that we’re jealous or anything!
