You don't need to be Sherlock Holmes to spot the excitement in the following story: Robert Downey Jr. is a new father!

The actor's wife, Susan, gave birth to Exton Elias Downey at 7:24 a.m. today in Los Angeles, with the star's rep confirming to People: "Everyone is healthy and they couldn’t be happier." 

The child weighed in at 7 lbs., 5 oz. and was measured at 20 inches long. He's the first child for Susan and Robert, but the actor's second overall. He has an 18-year old son from a previous marriage.
