Robert Downey Jr. is having another baby!

The 49-year-old (beloved!) actor and his wife, producer Susan Downey, 40, are expecting a baby girl in the fall. Robert announced the big news on Wednesday, July 9, in a tweet that is soooo Robert Downey Jr.

He also took to Facebook to thrill fans with another classic RDJ announcement.

“Um. I don’t know if it’s a ‘man’s world’,” he writes, “but I’m certain women run it. Susan and I are therefore delighted to announce we are expecting a baby. Girl. November. rdj.” Heh!

This will be Robert’s third child. He and Susan are also parents to son Exton Elias, 2.5, and Robert’s 20-year-old son from a previous relationship, Indio (who, sadly, was arrested just last week).

And does the Iron Man star aspire to be a superhero dad? Actually, nope. “Do I want to be a hero to my son? No,” he tells Esquire in a 2012 interview. “I would like to be a very real human being. That’s hard enough… Hero, to me, is not applicable to the human experience.”
