Robert Downey Jr.’s Hebrew Baby Name
‘Ironman’ star and his wife announce birth of daughter Avri Roel Downey
November 05, 2014
Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, film producer Susan Downey (née Levin), announced the birth of their second daughter today, and they’ve given her a name that’s less Hollywood and more… Hebrew. The Ironman star introduced Avri Roel Downey in the most “Dadddddd” Facebook post in the history of dads being allowed on Facebook.
After 9 months of intensive development, Team Downey is pleased to announce our 2014 fall/winter project.
Principal photography commenced 11-14 and will continue until she says, “Dad! You are embarrassing me…I’m 30, this has gotta stop.”
Yep…Avri Roel Downey joined the party @ 3:22 a.m. on November 4th…she’s 7lbs even, spans 20 inches, and is accompanied by a variety of Susan’s traits that have seemingly overwritten my “junk DNA.”
I’ll post pics here + there when I’m not too busy staring…
It’s a pretty recognizable Hebrew name, though some seem to be a little confused by it. Plus, as far as celebrity babies go, Avri Roel is almost shockingly normal. Mazel tov, RDJ.
