Robert Downey Jr. and wife Susan Downey are expecting a baby
Robert Downey Jr.'s wife, Susan, is pregnant with their first child together, with the two expecting the baby in February.

The couple "could not be more excited over this news," his rep told People on Wednesday. "They can't wait to welcome this new baby into their wonderful family."

The "Iron Man" actor has a 17-year-old son, Indio, with ex-wife Deborah Falconer. Robert, 46, and Susan, 37, who met on the set of "Gothika," were married in 2005.

Note that their rep graciously did not say that they were, um, "over the moon." However, Susan's aunt, Nancy Miller, told Star that the grandparents did in fact go lunar.

"Susan's father, my brother, called me about three weeks ago with the good news. Her parents are over the moon about it," Miller said.
