Cigars are in order! Robert Downey Jr. (46) and his wife Susan (38) have welcomed a BOY!

According to their rep, the baby was born 7:28 this morning (Tuesday, February 7), weighing in at 7 pounds, 5 ounces, 20 inches long.

And the name is….

Wait for it….

Exton Elias Downey!

Have you ever heard of the name “Exton” before? Hmmm…. I just checked our trusty Baby Namer tool, and I actually found the name Exton! Checkit:


Origin: Shakespearean

Meaning: ‘King Richard The Second’ Sir Pierce of Exton.

Exton Elias Downey joins half-brother Indio (18), Robert’s son with ex-wife Deborah Falconer.

It’s no surprise that Robert and Susan had a boy, if you recall, because Robert accidentally blurted out the baby’s sex on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

“I could never really stay mad at him,” Susan later told People, “but I can tell you it genuinely wasn’t something we planned to reveal,”

Congratulations to the family!
