Robert Downey Jr. Is Expecting Baby No. 2

The Iron Man actor has already revealed his second child’s sex – and star sign – in a typically ironic fashion

From seasonal video reveals to ultrasound scan photos, we’ve had all manner of celebrity pregnancy confirmations. But Robert Downey Jr.’s has to be one of the best – and quirkiest – yet.

In his classic dry manner, RDJ tweeted his news yesterday, writing, ‘Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?’ No one can say he’s not to the point. 

But the actor didn’t just share his happy news with his Twitter fans. He also revealed his wife’s pregnancy on Facebook in another witty way, writing, ‘Um. Don’t know if it’s a “man’s world”, but I’m certain women run it. Susan and I are therefore delighted to announce we are expecting a baby. Girl. November. rdj.’

The actor, 49, and his film producer wife Susan, 40, are already parents to son Exton Elias, two, and Robert has a 20-year-old son, Indio, from his first marriage.

We wonder if the couple’s baby girl will have a name beginning with ‘E’, too?
