Robert Downey Jr. can't wait to have a baby daughter.

The 49-year-old actor and wife Susan Levin will welcome a little girl into the world in November and he is planning to shower the latest edition to his family with a ''blizzard'' of gifts.

Speaking at Comic-Con in San Diego, he said: ''I haven't had much time to shop for her yet, but when I do it's going to be a blizzard.''

Robert is even more excited about the birth because this will be his first daughter as he already has sons Indio, 20, with ex-wife Deborah Falconer, and Exton, two, with Susan.

However, he previously admitted he is apprehensive about having a daughter having only raised sons in the past.

He said: ''I've never had a daughter before, so I don't know what really prepares a dad. I'm asking around. But I did my part and now I'm just going to show up and do what I'm told.''

Robert married Susan in 2005 and credits her for helping him to get his personal life and career back on track following years of addiction.
