Iron Man star Robert Downey, Jr. is hoping to play daddy again within the next two years – and he’s praying for a little girl.
The movie star, who has a teenage son from his marriage to actress Deborah Falconer, is keen to start a family with his second wife Susan – and this time he wants a daughter.

He tells Playboy magazine, “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 (son) Indio to feel there’s another boy in my life.”

And the 45 year old has a timetable in mind: “I think I will be wrist-deep in doo-doo within 18 months, I’m calling it, right here.”
