Robbie Williams blogging baby birth

Robbie Williams is providing his fans with an online commentary from his wife's bedside as she apparently prepares to give birth to their second child.

The Angels star has posted a string of videos and pictures showing him in hospital with his wife Ayda Field, including one showing her on a bed wearing high heels with the words: "When Ayda goes into labour she comes correct."

He also published videos showing the pair of them dancing in their hospital room and another where he jokingly tells fans: "It's quarter past seven, we've been here since ten o'clock last night and I know you're really concerned and worried and thinking about what's going on. I need you to know I'm doing great."

Another video, called A River Runs Through It, appears to show a doctor preparing to break his wife's waters.

Williams broke the news on Twitter earlier this year that the couple, who live in Los Angeles with daughter Teddy, were expecting another baby.

The Stoke-born singer first hit the headlines in Take That but quit the group in 1995 and embarked on a hugely successful solo career.

He married Ms Field in the grounds of his Beverly Hills mansion in August 2010 and their daughter, formally known as Theodora, was born two years later.
