Baby girl for Robert Downey Jr

Robert Downey Jr and his wife have welcomed a baby girl.

The Iron Man star announced on Facebook that his wife Susan had given birth to their daughter Avri Roel Downey on November 4.

He wrote: "After 9 months of intensive development, Team Downey is pleased to announce our 2014 fall/winter project.

"Principal photography commenced 11-14 and will continue until she says, 'Dad! You are embarrassing me... I'm 30, this has gotta stop.

"Yep... Avri Roel Downey joined the party @ 3:22 a.m. on November 4th... she's 7lbs even, spans 20 inches, and is accompanied by a variety of Susan's traits that have seemingly overwritten my 'junk DNA'."

The actor added that he would be sharing pictures of his new arrival with his fans when he wasn't "too busy staring".

Robert, 49, also tweeted the happy news, saying: "Pretty like mama, and dimples like my uncle Jim!"

The couple already have a son, Exton Elias Downey, who will be three in February.

Robert also has a 21-year-old son, Indio, with his ex-wife Deborah Falconer.
