Robert Downey Jr. is the father of a new baby boy




Now's a good time for baby news, so hand out cigars to Robert Downey Jr., who has become a daddy again with the birth of a son with wife Susan, People reports. It's been 18 years since he last did this, so wish the 46-year-old some luck.

Exton Elias Downey was born at 7:24 a.m. Tuesday in L.A., the mag says. He weighed 7 pounds, 5 ounces, which is a lot more than Downey's other son from a previous marriage, Indio, who is now 18.

"Everyone is healthy and they couldn't be happier," an anonymous friend told People. Susan, 38, had been pretty not-happy Robert revealed the baby was going to be a boy back in August, but she's probably forgotten about all that now. Don't go expecting photos anytime soon, though.
