It will be a memorable Christmas for the ‘Iron Man’ star, who welcomed a baby girl on November 4.
The actor announced the happy news through his Facebook page on Wednesday in his famous witty manner. “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.’
The bundle of joy is Robert’s second child with wife Susan. She has two elder brothers, 2-year-old, Exton Elias and a stepbrother, 21-year-old Indio from Robert’s first wife Deborah Falconer.
The 49-year-old star is certainly thrilled to finally have a daughter but he is a little nervous. In a chat with Entertainment Tonight, Robert confessed that he doesn’t want to be a pushover. He would be a fair but firm dad and want his daughter to fear and respect him.
That sounds a good thought but let’s see who will be in charge in house once she will start growing. Meanwhile, the question is what is the push gift for the new mom.
Push gift is a trend that Robert would surely follow. After all, he is a doting husband and father. He understands what Susan has went through during her pregnancy and he would make this milestone event of her life more memorable. We are waiting to hear on that Iron Man!!
Congratulations to the happy parents!
