Robbie Williams is so nervous about becoming a dad he has joked about running away.
The 38-year-old singer and his wife Ayda Field are expecting a daughter and Robbie admitted impending parenthood and Ayda's mood swings have left him worried.
Speaking on Capital FM's Breakfast show, he said: ''There have been moments where I've wanted to run away.
''Recently Ayda was in a full-on grump, saying: 'Get this out of me!' And it was right around this point that I went: 'We're really having this, aren't we? Can I run off?'''
Robbie also revealed the couple have chosen a name for their baby but refused to consider any unusual monikers.
He explained: ''Right now I'm ecstatic. We do have a name but we're not going to get it out in case it gets tweeted.
''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 Appleesque. It's a very solid, old-school name.''
Robbie is also planning to move back to England from Los Angeles because he doesn't want his daughter to go to school with the ''f*****g idiots'' in the city although he admitted he and American born Ayda are still discussing their future living arrangements.
He told The Sun newspaper: ''I don't want to educate our baby in LA because I would much prefer her to have English sensibilities.
''They are idiots in L.A. schools. They are f***ing idiots. They are a breed of idiots that only exist in Los Angeles and she would be surrounded by them. It's not like one or two either. It's not like the 'Big Brother' house, where you pick the worst ones.
''I think kids there have a massive sense of entitlement, are dull and dumb. It means me coming back to the UK for good but I can live with that. It's worth being pestered for her to have a good school.
''I want the baby to have an English passport, we're still figuring out exactly whereabouts the baby is going to be brought up.
''I had a conversation with the wife last night about where we're going to end up but we still don't know.''
