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.
The happy couple have been married for nine years have son Exton, two and a half, and Robert's 21-year-old son, Indio, from a previous marriage. We bet they're thrilled to meet their new little sister.
Pregnancy is an exciting time as you count down the months, weeks and days to the arrival of your little one. But it can also be a time of little worries, niggles and gripes - one of them being heartburn.
Every new parent is undoubtedly on a mission to get more zzz’s, so it surely makes sense to research the best mattress for your little one and find out what really goes on under the surface they are lying on for over 8 hours every day.
As a parent, you probably take multiple photos of your little one every day – there are so many amazing milestones to cross off your list as you watch your baby grow, capturing and sharing these milestones and memories is a joy.
