Robert Downey Jr.’s son, Indio, may be dealing with a drug addiction, but if his dad has anything to say about it, he won’t be going through it alone. According to what sources close to the family have told People, Robert is planning to stick by him every step of the way.

After the 20-year-old was arrested for cocaine possession on June 29, he voluntarily checked himself into rehab. Shortly after news of Indio’s arrest broke, Robert released a statement of support for his son — and it sounds like that support will continue to be unwavering.


“Robert clearly understands the struggle, and while of course this relapse was very upsetting to him, he is very proud of his son,” the insider says. “Indio truly wants to stay clean. And no matter what, his dad will be right there with him.”

Meanwhile, the family does have something happy to think about: A new baby is on the way! On July 9, the Iron Man star announced on Twitter that he and his wife, Susan, are expecting to welcome a baby girl in November.

Hopefully, by then, Indio will be in better shape to become a big brother (again) and the whole family will have a lot to celebrate. We wish him the best in his recovery.
