Los Angeles - Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey have named their newborn daughter Avri Roel Downey.

The Chef star, who already has two-year-old son Exton with his producer wife of nine years, is besotted with their baby girl, who he joked has inherited "a variety of Susan's traits" instead of his own "junk DNA".

The 49-year-old actor shared the news on all corners of social media, boasting about the arrival of his new baby girl.

Robert previously confessed he was nervous about raising a daughter.

He said: "I've never had a daughter before, so I don't know what really prepares a dad. I'm asking around. But I did my part and now I'm just going to show up and do what I'm told." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
