What Robert Downey Jr. would say to his unborn son

Now that we know Robert Downey, Jr. and wife Susan are excitedly awaiting a baby boy, we wanted to find out how they're feeling leading up to their expected February due date.

For Susan, she's thinking "move down a little bit, I need a bit of breathing room please," she joked on Tuesday.

But as for Downey, he's having visions of stardom for his unborn: "I'm thinking, 'What are the child labor laws, and are you ready for your close up?'”

Before baby Downey arrives, dad Robert is starring in Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," which opens December 16. In the film, Downey experiments with a little cross-dressing...

"It was my idea...I was trying to think of what's the creepiest thing that Mary, Watson's wife, could see me disguised as. And it's that thing." It seems he doesn't plan on making it a habit in his spare time, though - not that he's going to have much time on his hands, anyway.

As director Ritchie, who became a father again in September, doesn't have a lot of advice for Downey, but he does note, "There's a lot of nappy changing. And a lot of sleeping. And that's it. So, there is no advice. I mean, other than, be prepared to change nappies."

    When this baby squirts out is it gonna be a baby iron man or a new super hero altogether? If its a completely new super hero when do you think the movie will come out?

    You have to respect RD because he was able to man up to his mistakes, correct them and stand again. Good luck to him and Susan and their new star!
