Robert Downey Jr. and his wife Susan, 40, are expecting… he’s about to be a father again… a baby girl.

Robert Downey, Jr. made the announcement today on Twitter and Facebook that he’s expecting a girl in November.

“Um. I don’t know if it’s a ‘man’s world’, but I’m certain women run it,” the 49-year-old wrote on Facebook to his nearly 20-million ‘friends.’ “Susan and I are therefore delighted to announce we are expecting a baby. Girl.”


He said something similar on Twitter to his 2.1 million followers, apparently thinking he had to use a lot less than 140 characters.

“Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?” he tweeted.

It’s the third child for the Hollywood A-lister, who has a son named Exton Elias Downey with Susan, 40.

Robert Downey, Jr. also has a 20-year-old son, Indio Downey, who made headlines in June after his arrest on drug possession charges.
