Robert Downey Jr. & Wife Susan Welcome A Daughter!

Robert Downey Jr. & Wife Susan Welcome A Daughter!

Congratulations are in order for Robert Downey, Jr. and his wife Susan as they are parents to a bouncing baby girl! The actor and his wife welcomed their daughter into the world in Los Angeles earlier this week. No details have been released regarding their daughter’s name, weight or anything else, so stay tuned for the scoop…

Just last Thursday, The Judge and Iron Man star, 49, paid a loving tribute to his very pregnant wife and soon-to-be-born daughter during the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards, where he received the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.

“It’s just the uncertainty of how nowadays you have all these things where you think you have much more of an understanding of what you’re going to get,” said Downey. “And then this little soul lets herself be known to you, and it’s just like: You don’t know anything. It’s great!”

In his acceptance speech Downey singled out his wife and producing partner, “who is literally about to pop,” and asked her to stand up for the crowd. “How is she still so darn pretty and functional and mood-stable?” he told the audience before joking that “the second pregnancy has been extraordinarily tough for me. Self-prescribed mandatory bed rest was of some benefit. At least my milk is finally coming in.”

Congrats to the happy couple on their new addition!

Robert Downey Jr. Hasn’t Said ‘No’ to Iron Man 4

"The Avengers" Films in NYC!

I love me some Robert Downey Jr.  The Iron Man star and highest-paid actor in Hollywood, has hinted that he would be open to a 4th installment of the wildly successful Iron Man franchise.  While he is currently filming the next Avengers movie, many people have speculated whether or not Downey Jr. would appear in the next chapter of Tony Stark’s on screen life.

He told Entertainment Weekly:

“It’s down to Kevin (Feige, Marvel Studios president) and Ike (Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment) and Disney to come to us with what the proposal is, and that’s on us to agree or disagree,” Downey said. But he added, “Right now, this has just been swell, hasn’t it?”

“It’s that thing of: Why give up the belt when it feels like you can barely get jabbed?” he said. “Most people are saying that right when they get knocked out.”

I’m pretty sure that the studios would give their left thumbs to get him in any possible role he would take- considering his earning power for the studios.  The three Iron Man films made were some of the most profitable movies in the last decade, with the last film grossing more than $1.2 billion worldwide!

I say do it.  He’s so rad and so entertaining to watch.  That said- I just read Bret Easton Ellis’ Less Than Zero, which Downey Jr. starred in back in 1987 and it was so dark and heavy it made me feel like I needed to take about 100 hot showers- and not in a dirty 50 Shades of Grey way.  (I also found that trailer way more compelling than I thought I would… perhaps because Jamie Dornan is so sexy…) So I guess I prefer the more light hearted current work in Bobby’s repertoire.  But that’s just me.

Fans who didn’t catch the happy news on Facebook found out on Twitter when RDJ shared: “Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?”

The couple already have a two-year-old son named Extant Elias Downey and he has another son by former wife Deborah Falconer named Indio. He finally got a daughter! Congratulations to them on their awesome news! We can’t wait to see pictures of her baby bump!

Robert Downey Jr’s son Indio was arrested for cocaine possession

Robert Downey Jr's son Indio was arrested for cocaine possession

Back in the nineties, Robert Downey, Jr. suffered from an addiction to cocaine and now his son appears to be going through the same thing. It’s sad, really…

Indio was a passenger in a car that was driving in West Hollywood yesterday when he decided to smoke something from a pipe in front of a cop. So naturally he was pulled over and arrested. He posted his $10,000 bail shortly after midnight and has since been released.

His famous dad has released this statement: “Unfortunately there’s a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it. Also, there is a lot of family support and understanding, and we’re all determined to rally behind him and help him become the man he’s capable of being. We’re grateful to the Sheriff’s department for their intervention, and believe Indio can be another recovery success story instead of a cautionary tale.”

Kudos to the family for tackling this problem head-on. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that Indio can come through addiction like his father has.
