Though Robert Downey, Jr. was the one being celebrated for his body of work by the British film and television community based in Los Angeles, The Judge star made a point to pay a loving tribute to his pregnant wife and soon-to-be-born daughter.
“It’s going to be a good date night,” Downey, 49, told PEOPLE as he and his very expectant wife and film producing partner Susan, 40, arrived at the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards in Beverly Hills on Thursday, where he was receiving the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film. The actor was in high spirits squiring his wife down the red carper, and was looking forward to the imminent birth of their daughter (the Downeys are already parents to son Exton, 2½, and Downey is father to 21-year-old son Indio from a previous marriage).
“It’s just the uncertainty of how nowadays you have all these things where you think you have much more of an understanding of what you’re going to get,” said Downey. “And then this little soul lets herself be known to you, and it’s just like: you don’t know anything. It’s great!”
