Robbie Williams becomes a dad

Pop star Robbie Williams became a dad for the first time last night when his wife Ayda gave birth to a little girl called Theodora Rose.

“Praise be, it’s Theodora Rose Williams, affectionately known as Teddy… Born 3.33pm on 18.9.12, 7Ibs 4oz,” Robbie wrote on his blog. “Baby, Mummy and Daddy are all rockin…. Thank you for your best wishes XXXX.”

Last week in a radio interview Robbie revealed that he and Ayda were bypassing the celebrity tradition of giving children an unusual name.

“And as a celebrity we’re supposed to call them Aubergine or something like that aren’t we? I do have a sort of celebrity name but it’s not Apple-esque. It’s a very solid, old-school name.”

The new arrival comes after Robbie booked several concerts promoting his album, due out later this year, in the week of Adyda’s due date.

He told radio DJ Chris Evans last week: “I’ve had a bit of a falling out with the wife. So I’ve got gigs this week, the baby could come at any minute, the wife has said, ‘If I go into labour and you’ve got a gig in say Leeds or Dublin, you’ve got to cancel it and come home.’”
