Robbie Williams has spilled the beans about the gender of he and Ayda Field’s baby-to-be. Despite having been warned by his wife to keep quiet, the singer couldn’t keep the excitement to himself!
Speaking at a Soccer Six event on Thursday with Jonathan Wilkes, Robbie Williams revealed, “It’s a girl. I’m very, very excited about becoming a daddy. I can’t wait. The missus is, like, ‘Don’t go telling’ and I said ‘I won’t’.”
The 38-year-old singer went on to say, “I’m going to teach her football and karate and boxing. That’s the first thing she’s going to learn to keep people like me and Johnny away.”
Robbie Williams, who has worked with Unicef previously, is getting even further in touch with his emotional side now that fatherhood is on the horizon.
“It’s the vulnerability of the kids, really. It makes you feel very lucky to have the life we do,” he said. “Becoming a dad-to-be has changed my perception. I didn’t realize it was going to until it did. It’s overwhelming.
“We watched a video about what Unicef does and I felt myself tearing up, in a way I wouldn’t have done in the past. It definitely pulls on the heart-strings even greater now that I know I’ve got this responsibility.”
