Robbie Williams and wife Ayda look loved-up in rare throwback photo: see picture

They have been together for over a decade. And on Thursday, Ayda Field was feeling nostalgic as she shared a sweet throwback photo of herself cuddling up to husband Robbie Williams. The picture, which was taken in 2008, sees the couple - who were not married at the time - looking very loved-up and rather young as they pose together on what appears to be a romantic holiday.

"Throwback Tan. Me and @robbiewilliams in 2008. #tbt #thursdaymood #instagood #ryda #loveofmylife," the photograph was simply captioned. The couple tied the knot at their Beverly Hills home two years later. Since their nuptials, Robbie and Ayda have become parents to two children. Their daughter Theodora Rose – known as Teddy – was born on 18 September 2012, and they welcomed their son, Charlton Valentine, into the world on 27 October 2014.

Last year, the former Take That singer opened up about the pride he feels for his wife for carving out her own career after taking time out to follow him around the world. "When we met, I kind of took Ayda hostage," he told The Sun. "I kidnapped her and took her away from her career. I needed her with me, and that was how it was going to work."

The star, 42, even admitted that he told 37-year-old Ayda to turn down a role in a US TV show to stay by his side. "I was like, 'Look, we're going to England and I want you to come with me. This won't work.'"

He continued: "The biggest reason I fell in love with Ayda is because of her personality. I'm incredibly proud of her and I'm not only in love with her, but I really like her… And I want her to be out there, and I want people experiencing what I am experiencing, because it's unique what she's got. I'm like a proud parent, even with the wife. I'm like, 'Go out there and shine, my love.'"
