"Iron Man" Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan, have welcomed their second child together, confirms People. Their daughter was born on November 4 at 3:22 am.

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!

Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
