Robert Downey Jr. has a daughter on the way.

"Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?" the actor tweeted Wednesday.

So ... I guess that means he and wife Susan Downey are expecting their second child together.

Either that, or they just hired a really young maid.

Married for nine years, the couple had son Exton Elias on Feb. 7, 2012. Downey also has a 20-year-old son, Indio, from his first marriage.

The "Iron Man" actor made the announcement on Facebook, too.

"Um. I don't know if it's a 'man's world', but I'm certain women run it. Susan and I are therefore delighted to announce we are expecting a baby. Girl. November. rdj"

Downey's rep confirmed the big news.

According to E! News, Downey talked about the kind of father he pictured himself being shortly after Exton was born.

"Do I want to be a hero to my son? No," Downey told Esquire. "I would like to be a very real human being. That's hard enough. Hero, to me, is not applicable to the human experience."

Easy for Iron Man to say.
