Robert Downey Jr.'s Daughter Has Arrived!
The actor first announced his wife's pregnancy on Twitter back in July and then followed up with another announcement on Facebook with the added words, "I don't know if it's a 'man's world,' but I'm certain women run it."
Avri Roel joins her big brother, Exton Elias, who was born in February 2012. Downey Jr. also has a 21-year-old son from a previous marriage.
Recently, Downey Jr. shared sweet sentiments about having a daughter. According to eOnline.com, he revealed last month on Ellen, "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."
And at a British awards ceremony last week, he explained how having a girl challenged his sense of certainty: "...You think you have much more of an understanding of what you're going to get. And this little soul lets herself be known to you, and it's just like: You don't know anything. It's great!"
Congratulations to the happy parents!
