Just last week, Robert, 49, paid a very sweet tribute to his wife and their daughter as he accepted an award at the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards for excellence in film.

"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," he said.

"And then this little soul lets herself be known to you, and it’s just like: You don’t know anything. It’s great!"

Robert revealed back in July that the couple were expecting a baby girl. “Yo. Susan. Me. Baby. Girl. November. Scorpio?” he wrote on Twitter.

He took to social media again by writing on his Facebook page. “Um. I don’t know if it’s a ‘man’s world’, but I’m certain women run it,” Robert said. “Susan and I are therefore delighted to announce we are expecting a baby. Girl. November.”
