Robert Downey Jr. and wife Susan Welcome a daughter

Los Angeles:  Actor Robert Downey Jr's wife Susan has delivered a girl here, reports people.com.

The duo, who married in 2005, already have two-and-a-half year old son Exton.

The 49-year-old star, who has become a father for the third time, also has a son, Indio, from his previous marriage.

Just last Thursday, The Judge and Iron Man star, 49, paid a loving tribute to his very pregnant wife and soon-to-be-born daughter during the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards, where he received the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.

“It's just the uncertainty of how nowadays you have all these things where you think you have much more of an understanding of what you're going to get,” said Downey. “And then this little soul lets herself be known to you, and it's just like: You don't know anything. It's great!”

While accepting the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film, Downey Jr asked his wife and producing partner to stand up, saying: "How is she still so darn pretty and functional and mood-stable?"

He then joked that "the second pregnancy has been extraordinarily tough for me. Self-prescribed mandatory bed rest was of some benefit. At least my milk is finally coming in."
