Robert Downey Jr. confirmed he and his wife Susan welcomed a little girl named Avri yesterday, Nov. 4!
“After 9 months of intensive development, Team Downey is pleased to announce our 2014 fall/winter project,” he wrote on Facebook.
“Principal photography commenced 11-14 and will continue until she says, ‘Dad! You are embarrassing me…I’m 30, this has gotta stop.’ Yep…Avri Rose 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.’”

She’s here! Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan, are proud parents of a bouncing baby girl!
The baby girl joins the couple’s son, Exton, 2, and RDJ’s son Indio, 21, from a previous relationship.
In July, the Iron Man actor announced he and his wife were expecting on Twitter, he wrote, “Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?”

Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?
After learning he was having a little girl, the 49-year-old shared his excitement on The Ellen Show last month.
“It’s wild,” he gushed. “I’ve heard that for dads, you grow a new heart valve when you have a daughter, and there’s all sorts of new experiences and feelings and stuff.”
So will baby girl Downey get any younger siblings in the future? Unfortunately not! He joked, “The missus says we’re done!”
Congratulations to all!
