Robert Downey Jr. & Wife Welcome Baby Girl
Another Day, Another Unique Hollywood Baby Name
Robert Downey Jr. has confirmed that his wife Susan Downey has given birth to their second child together.
The actor posted the happy news on Facebook and in true hollywood fashion, the couple has given their daughter a fairly unconventional name: Avri Roel Downey.
“After 9 months of intensive development, Team Downey is pleased to announce our 2014 fall/winter project. Principal photography commenced 11-14 and will continue until she says, ‘Dad! You are embarrassing me...I'm 30, this has gotta stop,’” Downey Jr. wrote.
“Yep...Avri Roel Downey joined the party @ 3:22 a.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.’ I'll post pics here + there when I'm not too busy staring…”
The Iron Man star and his producer wife have been married since August 2005 and Avri joins her siblings in the “unique name” stakes with big brother Exton Elias, 2, and Indio, 21, the actor’s son from a previous relationship.
Congratulations to the happy couple.
