Robbie hopes he'll be a good dad

Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field are new parents to daughter Theodora Rose, who was born yesterday afternoon.

‘Praise be, it’s Theodora Rose Williams, affectionately known as Teddy…born 3.33pm on 18.9.12, 7lbs 4oz…’ Robbie has announced on his website.

‘Baby, Mummy and Daddy are all rockin…Thank you for your best wishes…xxxx.’

The Take That singer’s first child was due on 26 September but decided to make an early arrival. And she’ll definitely be a daddy’s girl.

Robbie, 38, wept when he saw Theodora for the first time on scans during Ayda‘s pregnancy, which was revealed in March.

‘We had sex! It works!’ he declared on Twitter.

‘Basically I’m in love with a little person growing in mummy’s belly…

‘And can’t wait to be a daddy… crying now…

‘Much love much joy, Roberto, Mum and Little Bump xxxxxx.’
