Robert Downey, Jr.’s exciting baby announcement comes in the wake of much more serious news. Last week (June 30), the actor’s 20-year-old son from a previous relationship, Indio, was arrested for possession of cocaine.
Robert is no stranger to drug addiction, a sentiment he addressed in a statement he released to the media.
“Unfortunately, there is a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it,” Downey said. “Also, there is a lot of family support and understanding, and we’re all determined to rally behind him and help him become the man he’s capable of being.”
