Robert Downey Jr., wife Susan welcome son Exton

It's another boy for Robert Downey Jr. The 46-year-old actor and his wife Susan welcomed a son on Tuesday morning in Los Angeles, CNN's confirmed.

The little one was born at 7:24 a.m., weighing in at 7 pounds and 5 ounces. The proud parents named their new addition Exton Elias Downey. With a name like that, we're sure Exton will have no trouble fitting in in Hollywood.

Dad Downey already has visions of stardom for his progeny, after all. When asked what he'd say to his unborn son back in December, the actor replied, "Are you ready for your close-up?"

Although it's the first child for Downey and Susan, the "Iron Man" star does have an 18-year-old son, Indio, from a previous marriage.

    ELIAS is Robert Downey Jrs. REAL LAST NAME, that is why he gave it to the baby as a middle name, because it will probably be used as his legal last name as Robert uses it, as Elias IS his real last name, Downey is just a stage name his dad started using and so Robert uses it.Reply.

    Exton sure is a cool name. I think it means he used to weigh a ton but lost weight. Alecia that used to post here needs to learn from him.

      That's a stupid name. How about Inton instead of Exton? Inton sounds better.
