Robert Downey Jr And Wife Susan Reveal Name Of Baby Girl (Video)

Robert Downey Jr and his wife Susan welcomed their second child together earlier this week and the Iron Man actor has shared the name they've picked out for their new arrival  

Robert announced the name in a Facebook post in his usual offbeat manner, writing, ‘Yep…Avri Roel Downey joined the party @ 3:22a.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.”’

Pronounced Ay-Vree, there’s a bit of a tale behind the new arrivals middle name. The first two letters of Roel are for the actor's dad, Robert and wife Rosemary. The last two letters are a nod to the actor’s mum Elsie and Susan’s dad, Eliot.
