Robert Downey Jr. Is Going to Be A Dad!

Well, again. He’s going to be a father again. He already has a 17-year-old son named Indio with his ex-wife, but that’s neither here nor there, because Robert and his lovely wife Susan are about to have a little bitty baby! Can you even stand the very thought of something so adorable? Because I’m having trouble.

The little bundle of magic is due early next year, and here’s the brief statement from Robert’s rep:

“Robert and Susan could not be more excited over this news. They can’t wait to welcome this new baby into their wonderful family.”


RDJ has also stated that he hopes he and Susan have a little girl because he doesn’t want “another male entity to have to compete.”  Whatever, honestly, all I want is a beautiful gallery full of delightfully adorable pictures, much like those of David Beckham with little Harper, featuring a heartwarming Robert Downey Jr. cradling a little child close in his arms. Maybe with his shirt off. And a fog machine. And sepia tones. Also there should be a puppy.

It’s official, I’m totally more excited over this than I am over the Beybay. Who’s with me?
