Iron Man has a daughter. No, this is not breaking news as Robert Downey Jr’s daughter, Avri (pronounced Ay-Vree) Roel Downey, recently celebrated her 8th birthday, but for those who don’t follow the Downey’s (Robert and his wife, producer Susan Downey), it could be news, nonetheless. Even with parents who are all about Hollywood, Avri has yet to make the leap onto a movie set although, as you will see, she has been featured prominently on a few of Robert Downey Jr’s social media videos.

ROBERT DOWNEY JR’S DAUGHTER, AVRI ROEL DOWNEY WAS BORN IN 2014

Avri Roel Downey came blazing into this world on November 4, 2014. Her birth was proceeded by a fun announcement by Robert Downey Jr on his Facebook page.

On it he wrote, “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…”

You may be curious about Avri’s middle name, Roel, as it is very unique. The inspiration of her middle name comes from both sets of her grandparents. The first two characters of her middle name, “Ro” is derived her paternal grandfather’s name, Robert, and his wife, who is named Rosemary. Also, Avri’s maternal grandmother, Susan’s mom, is named Rosie.

The last two letters of her middle name, “el”, come from Robert Downey Jr’s mother, Elsie, and Susan Downey’s father, Eliot Levin. Combining the grandparents’ names is a great way to honor Avri Roel Downey’s grandparents.

AVRI ROEL DOWNEY HAS TWO OLDER SIBLINGS, INDIO FALCONER AND EXTON ELIAS

Avri Roel Downey is not an only child. In fact, not only does she have an older brother from her parents, Robert and Susan, but she also has an older half-brother from Robert’s earlier relationship with Deborah Falconer. The two, Robert and Deborah, were married in 1992.

Indio Falconer Downey was born in September 1993, making him almost 30 years old. He was born in the middle of a tumultuous time in Robert and Deborah’s life as Robert had been in and out of rehab for drugs and alcohol. Not only were they dealing with Robert’s abuse issues, but Robert was also finding himself in and out of jail as well.

The strain of it all became too much for Deborah to handle, and rightfully so. She had just given birth to Indio and Robert was still struggling with his demons. Somehow, Deborah hung in until 2001 when Downey Jr was going through another arrest and an extended stint in rehab, forcing Deborah to take Indio…
