Little Exton weighed 7 lbs. 5 oz. at birth and measured 20 inches long. It's the first child for producer Susan, 38; Sherlock Holmes star Downey, 46, has an older son, 18-year-old Indio, with ex-wife Deborah Falconer.

The actor -- who took Susan on a romantic Hawaiian getaway back in November -- revealed his baby-to-be's gender back in December.

Downey joked about second-time fatherhood to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show late last year. "I don't wanna be presumptuous," he said. "But I think actually [the pregnancy] has been tougher on me [than Susan!]... Just the hormones on and the mood stuff and the nausea and the whole thing."
