While promoting Due Date to Playboy Magazine last November, Robert Downey Jr. hinted that he and his wife Susan Downey wanted to have a child together pretty soon because he wanted to be “wrist-deep in doo-doo within 18 months.” Already father to now 18 year-old son Indio (whose mother is Deborah Falconer, whom Downey Jr. was married to from 1992 to 2004), Downey said he probably would want his next child to be a girl because “I don’t want another male entity to have to compete; I don’t want Indio to feel there’s another boy in my life. But I don’t know what we’d have to do [to have a girl]. Do we have to put it in a spoon and hang it upside-down?”
Well whatever the Downeys ended up doing, all they can do now is wait because Radar Online is reporting that the couple is officially expecting their first child. Family members confirm that Susan’s due in February, and her aunt told Star Magazine, “I think it’s wonderful that she’s pregnant. The baby is due in February. Susan’s father, my brother, called me about three weeks ago with the good news. Her parents are over the moon about it.” In terms of whether or not the Downeys continue to cross their fingers for a girl, Miller stated “It doesn’t really matter if it’s a boy or a girl. What really matters is if the baby is healthy.” And that’s definitely true — but what’s also definitely true is that his days of sulking around in Elton John music videos are over, and that’s something that surely matters to everyone.
