Robert Downey Jr.’s Son Born This Morning


News has just emerged that Robert Downey Jr.’s wife Susan Downey gave birth to their baby boy this morning. It is Susan’s first child, but Robert has an 18 year old son from his previous marriage. Read on to find out the little one’s name…

Exton Elias Downey!

Robert Downey Jr. has been busy promoting his new film, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, but he has also been busy talking about and preparing for his new role, as a dad to a new baby! Robert revealed he and Susan were having a boy back in December and then went onto The Tonight Show late last year and spoke to Jay Leno about the pregnancy experience..

“I don’t wanna be presumptuous,” he said. “But I think actually [the pregnancy] has been tougher on me [than Susan!]… Just the hormones on and the mood stuff and the nausea and the whole thing.”

Yes, Robert I am sure the pregnancy was much harder on you! Somehow I think your lovely wife, Susan, might disagree with you on that one :) Congratulations to you both on your new addition to the family!

What do you think of the name Exton?? Hmm….
