"Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?"
Those seven words -- tweeted by Robert Downey Jr. at 1:24 p.m. on July 9 -- confirmed the exciting news that he and his wife, Susan Downey, are expecting their second child together, a baby girl.
The actor, 49, and his movie producer wife, 40, welcomed their first child, a son named Exton Downey Elias Downey Jr., on Feb. 7, 2012. The two have been married since 2005.
The baby joy comes at a time when Robert likely needed some good news in his life -- especially as it relates to fatherhood. His 20-year-old son Indio -- his only child with former wife Deborah Falconer -- was arrested and charged with cocaine possession on June 29 in Los Angeles.
Robert, who is sober after famously battling his own demons for years through his addictions to drugs and alcohol, faced the story head-on by releasing a personal statement. "Unfortunately there's a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it. There is a lot of family support and understanding, and we're all determined to rally behind him and help him become the man he's capable of being," Robert said at the time.
The Daily Mail reports that Indio has now checked into a rehab facility in Malibu, Calif.
