Robbie Williams - Robbie Williams wanted a son

Subscribe to Robbie Williams alerts

Robbie Williams was initially disappointed to learn he was having a daughter.

The 'Candy' hitmaker - whose wife Ayda Field gave birth to Theodora 'Teddy' Rose in September - was secretly hoping for a son because he wanted to have a little boy who would share his passion for soccer.

He said: ''I was gutted. Which isn't going to endear me...

''Everybody was saying, 'What do you want?' And I was one of those who said, 'As long as it's healthy, I don't care.'

''But we found out it was a girl and I was gutted. I knew what to do with a boy, I take him to football (soccer). I know how that works, I've been one.''

However, the 38-year-old pop star admits raising Teddy has made him change his mind and he hopes all her future siblings are girls.

He is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: ''Now, I want four more and I want them all to be girls and I couldn't be happier.''

Robbie and his family are currently living in the UK after previously being based in Los Angeles and though they are unsure how long they will stay, the Take That singer admits he is keen for his daughter not to have an American accent.

He said: ''I want her to have a British passport. I don't want my kid to have an American accent.''
