Finding out the gender of your baby is a pretty huge benchmark on the road to parenthood. And while some celebrities insist on hiding their baby’s gender until after the actual birth, others are just too excited to contain themselves. Fortunately for us, the latter seems to be the case for Robert Downey Jr., who revealed that he and his wife Susan Levin are eagerly expecting a baby boy!
The actor spilled the beans about the exciting news on Monday night during an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. “I am not permitted to discuss it,” he quipped. “I can’t say a word… We’re having a boy!” So much for keeping things confidential. And while the Iron Man star is overjoyed by the news, he really wishes the whole pregnancy part was already over and joked, “I don’t wanna be presumptuous. But I think actually [the pregnancy] has been tougher on me [than Susan!]… Just the hormones on and the mood stuff and the nausea and the whole thing.” He playfully added, I gotta be careful. I am gonna have to see my wife some time after doing this segment with you, and I think I’m already in trouble.”
As reports previously revealed, the baby’s due date is sometime in February. Congratulations to the parents-to-be! Check out the slip confession below:
