Robbie Williams: 'I am chief nappy changer. I love it'

24 OCTOBER 2012

New father Robbie Williams has revealed he has taken charge of nappy changing duties with baby Teddy - and says it's a great bonding experience.

In an interview with Real Radio North East's breakfast show to be broadcast tomorrow, he told presenters Gary Philipson and Lisa Shaw he is a hands-on dad.

"I am on nappy patrol. I am nappy changer, chief nappy changer. I love it. I love burping her. I love feeding her and I love changing nappies. It's weird - I find it uniquely bonding."

Since Teddy's arrival, Robbie has been gushing about his little girl and how involved he is in his daughter's upbringing.

The singer, soon to release new single Candy, said he often popped his daughter over his shoulder to wind her. "There are times of the day when I do because, as I say, I'm chief burper," the Take That star said.

And he reckoned he was thoroughly enjoying his new role in life. "Your world changes for the better - she's an absolute gift, she's an absolute joy," he said. "I absolutely adore being a dad."

The star also spoke about Theodora's dramatic arrival into the world.

"I cut the cord but, bless her, I cut it while she was still inside Ayda. Teddy was going blue because the umbilical cord was caught around her neck.

"I had to be quick with the scissors. It was like the first 30 minutes of Saving Private Ryan down there."

He then revealed the tot is now fighting fit. "She's got a bit of acid reflux but she's such a chilled baby."

The singer became a father last month after wife Ayda gave birth to their first child Theodora Rose.

He announced the happy news on his blog with a post that read the following: "Praise be, it's Theodora Rose Williams, affectionately known as Teddy. Baby, Mummy and Daddy are all rockin.... Thank you for your best wishes XXXX."

Two days later, Robbie released the first pic of his newborn, "Daddies second nappy change, Teddy's second day on the planet."
