Robert Downey Jr. Wants A Daughter

Robert Downey Jr. wants a baby in 2012

Robert Downey Jr. is ready for another baby and he’s hoping that 2012 will be his year!

The actor who’s enjoyed a rather stellar comeback in the past few years, told Playboy magazine that he would love to have a child with his wife, Susan.

“I think we should probably try to have a girl because I don’t want another male entity to have to compete; I don’t want Indio (his 17-year-old son) to feel there’s another boy in my life. “I think I will be wrist-deep in doo-doo within 18 months. I’m calling it, right here.”

Well I think that’s great, although I wonder if Robert realizes that he can ‘try for a girl’ all he wants but he’ll get what he gets! Pretty sure he does, because he goes on to say that;

“I don’t know what we’d have to do. Do we have to put it in a spoon and hang upside-down? Of course that’s wrong, and I think, ‘Wait a minute, I don’t get to make that decision.’ “It’s the stupidest conversation ever because it’s like saying ‘Red or black?’ You have a 50 percent chance of being right and a 50 percent chance of being wrong.”

I understand where he’s coming from though. I’m sure in a perfect world he would love to have a daughter next because he’s already experienced having a son, but I’m sure that he would be completely elated no matter if he had a boy or a girl.

Do you know anyone who’s ever tried anything ‘exceptional’ to try to influence the gender of their baby?
