Robbie's parents Pete and Janet divorced when the singer was three years old. Pete went on to marry his second wife Melanie Mills, although the couple split in 2018 after eight years together. Also an entertainer and performer, Pete has joined his famous son on stage various times in the past, including performing a duet at Milan Fashion Week and even helping him judge contestants on The X Factor.

It sounds like Robbie and his dad Pete have passed down their love of performing to Robbie's eldest child, seven-year-old Teddy. Speaking to TV Life magazine, the singer, who is married to Ayda Field, said: "Teddy, our daughter, we're trying to keep her away from show business, but I think it's a useless thing we're trying to do. She actually cries when I go on stage because she can't. She's already destined for a life in show business. But we shall see, who knows?"
