Robbie Williams has become a dad at the age of 39, as his 33-year-old wife Ayda Field gave birth to a baby girl earlier today.
Robbie announced the arrival of Theodora Rose Williams, short for Teddy, on his blog this evening, saying,
PRAISE BE, IT’S THEODORA ROSE WILLIAMS, AFFECTIONATELY KNOWN AS TEDDY…..
BORN 3.33PM ON 18.9.12, 7LBS 4OZ…
BABY, MUMMY AND DADDY ARE ALL ROCKIN….
THANK YOU FOR YOUR BEST WISHES
This is the first child for the couple, who married two years ago, after first meeting in 2006. Robbie, who spent the last week on a promotional trail for his clothing line Farrell, and performed a string of solo gigs, admitted in Ireland on Friday, that his daughter was “very nearly born today” and he had a jet on stand-by in case Ayda went into labour.
Congratulations Robbie and Ayda!
