Ayda Field shared a gorgeous new photo of her husband Robbie Williams and their two oldest children to Instagram on Sunday – but it soon started a debate! The snap showed Robbie holding hands with seven-year-old Teddy and five-year-old Charlie as they headed towards a row of boats. 

Taken from the back, the picture showed the children wearing shorts and T-shirts and carrying black rucksacks, while Robbie wore a vest and shorts as well as a mask over his mouth. Many of Ayda's fans, however, were concerned that her husband wasn't wearing the face covering properly. One commented: "Robbie set an example and get that mask on properly please."

Others chimed in: "Rob be a good example wear the mask properly or pack it away in a plastic bag when you are out with the kids at the fresh air. So many people do it wrong," and: "Perfect disguise [laughing emojis] (don't forget to wear over the nose too)." Not all of Ayda's followers were in agreement, however, and some of them defended Robbie.

Their comments included: "There is nobody around them there. They are about to get on their yacht," and: "He’s outside with his own kids and I can’t see anyone else nearby!" Other fans of the couple were simply happy to see the behind-the-scenes glimpse into Robbie and Ayda's life.

One gushed: "Aww I love seeing Rob with his family. His kids. Always wanted to see him happy," while another added: "Family days, nothing like it." The Williams clan spent lockdown in their spacious mansion in Los Angeles, but several fans spotted that they appeared to be enjoying a summer break in Geneva.
