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.
