It's a girl for Robert Downey, Jr. and his wife, Susan!

According to People Magazine, the actor behind nominee officially became the father of a baby girl yesterday in Los Angeles.

The child (name and measurements currently unknown) joins the couple’s two-and-a-half-year old son, Exton Elias, along with Downey’s 21-year-old son from a previous marriage.

The star announced in July that he and his wife were expecting, initially Tweeting: “Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?”

He later added on Facebook, “Um. I don’t know if it’s a ‘man’s world’, but I’m certain women run it. Susan and I are therefore delighted to announce we are expecting a baby."

Just a few days ago, Downey paid a moving tribute to his pregnant wife during the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards, where he received the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.

"It’s just the uncertainty of how nowadays you have all these things where you think you have much more of an understanding of what you’re going to get,” he said. “And then this little soul lets herself be known to you, and it’s just like: You don’t know anything. It’s great."

Downey then asked Susan to stand up and be acknowledged, asking the crowd lovingly:

"How is she still so darn pretty and functional and mood-stable?"

Joining Downey in celebrity parenthood, Kelly Rowland gave birth to a boy this week. Congrats across the board!
