Robert Downey Jr. and Wife Susan: Baby On Board!

Iron Man star, Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan of six years are expecting their first baby together.  His rep confirmed the news to People,

“Robert and Susan could not be more excited over this news.  They can’t wait to welcome this new baby into their wonderful family.”

Robert and his ex wife, Deborah Falconer are parents to their 17-year-old son, Indio who will make a wonderful big brother.

We know from Robert’s chit chat a while back that he’s hoping for a daughter this time around:

“I think I will be wrist-deep in doo-doo within 18 months. I’m calling it right here.  I think we should probably try to have a girl because I don’t want another male entity to have to compete,” he said. “I don’t want Indio to feel there’s another boy in my life. But I don’t know what we’d have to do [to have a girl]. Do we have to put it in a spoon and hang it upside-down?”

He was right about get pregnant, will be right about having a girl too?  Crossing our fingers for you!

Congrats to the happy, growing family!
