Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, producer Susan Downey, are expecting a baby. Downey’s rep confirmed the news to Celebritology via e-mail.
This will be the first child for the couple, who married in 2005, two years after meeting on the set of the film “Gothika.”
Downey has an 18-year-old son, Indio, from his first marriage to Deborah Falconer.
The Academy Award-nominated actor has previously credited his wife for helping him kick his past drug addictions.
“The old saying is true — behind every good man there's an incredible woman,” he once told Ireland’s Evening Herald. “I owe a huge amount — if not all — of my success to Susan. We make a great team, and all that luck I spoke about, that's Susan.”
Presumably that great team will make great parents as well.
