He’s not Paul Avery, but he is a father in training. Actor Robert Downey Jr. recently took his six-month pregnant wife Susan Levin on a weekend getaway to Hawaii where they snorkeled on the island of Kauai, according to UsMagazine.com. The couple will welcome their first child in February. Downey Jr. and Levin met in 2003 on the set of the movie Gothika. The star of Sherlock Holmes credits Levin for helping him remain sober. “There’s no understanding for me of the bigger picture in real time in a hands-on way without her,” he told Esquire in 2009. “Because it was the perfect, perfect, perfect matching of personalities and gifts.”
What are some ways to make your pregnant significant other happy?
You don’t always have to take the future mother of your child off to a weekend getaway in Hawaii, but do try to make her feel appreciated. Here are some smaller ways to do so:
1. ‘Dinner’s on me’: Take some time to cook her favorite dinner. This will let her know just how special she is to you.
2. ‘Need a foot-rub?’: Do some little things for her around the house, make things easier for her while she’s pregnant. She’s the one carrying your child, which is work in and of itself.
3. ‘Have the remote’: Let her know that you’re there for her and ready to listen and take care of her needs. If she wants to watch a show, hand over the remote.
