Williams talks fatherhood
Robbie Williams and wife Ayda Field

New dad Robbie Williams has opened up about becoming a father, calling his daughter a "proper chilled baby".

The British pop star has taken well to fatherhood after his wife Ayda Field gave birth to their daughter, Theodore 'Teddy' Rose, on September 18, and admits his experiences thus far have been rather relaxed.

"(I'm) overjoyed. I was with Ayda throughout Teddy's birth and Ayda was incredible. She's a proper chilled baby - so far, anyway," he told The Sunday Times Style magazine.

Williams previously shared his parenting fears with the publication just days before Teddy's arrival, saying he was worried family commitments would "take my life away from me".

"I've been feeling all kinds of stuff. Half of it's, 'This is a miracle - this is half of me and half of you.' And then every now and again it's, 'F*** this, how dare you get pregnant, why are you doing this to me?'" he said.

"It was planned, we planned this, but on Thursday, it could be like that, and then Friday, Saturday and Sunday it could be like, 'Ayda, you are so beautiful, you are so feminine, this is such a miracle.' A huge lesson in selflessness is on its way. That's the thing I'm scared about because I've been a pop star since I was 16. I haven't had to wipe my a**e since 16, and now I literally have to wipe someone else's."
