Robert Downey Jr. & Susan Levin Welcome Son: Exton Elias

Congratulations are in order for Robert Downey Jr., 46, and wife Susan Levin, 38!

The couple welcomed their first child together, son Exton Elias Downey, at 7:24 a.m. on Tuesday (February 7) in Los Angeles, his rep confirms to E!.

Baby Exton weighs in at 7 lbs., 5 oz., is 20 inches long and joins big brother Indio, 18, Downey’s son from his previous marriage.

After announcing the pregnancy in August, the actor revealed the gender of the baby on national television, telling host Jay Leno, “I am not permitted to discuss it… I can’t say a word,” before announcing, “We’re having a boy!”

    Aw, that’s lovely and the name has a special meaning. RDJ’s dad was born Robert Elias before changing it to Robert Downey. Congrats to the couple!

    And the ridiculous names continue……

    I can’t even think of anything that stupid. These people should be ashamed of themselves – these kids have to grow up with these stupid names.

    As silly made up sounding names go, I think this one is pretty cool.

    I thought the site said she was due end of Feb. in the original announcement. In any case, the baby is a good size and (presumably) healthy.

    Some of you guys are so narrow-minded. There are more names out there besides the ones on the top 100 list. Ever think that maybe kids don’t want to have the same name as 5 other kids in their class? How about you teach your kids to be unique and be proud of who they are? It’s an awesome name.

    She’s really naturally pretty.

    Congrats to the lovely couple! Not sure yet about the name Exton, it might grow on me but I love the name Elias.

    I cannot believe some of you keep insisting on what you call “normal” names. Who decides what is “normal” anyway? Exton is different and a bit out there but still a good name. Sometimes I wonder if those of who scream and shout about “normal” names would be happy if everyone in society was forced to wear a uniform and be a drone….
