Robbie Williams is on cloud nine. The British pop singer, who rejoined Take That in 2010, has just shared his joy on the prospect of being a first time father. On Friday, March 30, he took to his website to make the announcement that he and his wife, Ayda Field, are expecting their first child together.
"Hey friendlies, I've been keeping a secret from you all," the 38-year-old wrote in the beginning of his blog post. "Me and Ayda are going to be a Mummy and Daddy this year!!!!!!!! We had sex! It works! We've seen scans and cried... looked at babies in commercials and teared up... the nursery is already planned."
The "Better Man" singer, who tied the knot with Field in August 2010, went on to gush, "Basically I'm in love with a little person growing in mummy's belly... and can't wait to be a daddy. Crying now." He signed off the post by writing, "Much love, much joy. Roberto, Mum and Little Bump. Xxx."
In a later interview with The Mirror, Williams claimed that he doesn't mind what sex his first child will be. The "Rock DJ" hitmaker said, "Baby girl or baby boy? I'm truly not bothered as long as we have a healthy baba." He went on, "I can play footie with a boy, but a girl would defo be a daddy's girl. So we would be blessed with either. Thinking about it I can play footie with a girl, too."
