Robbie Williams has revealed his life changed for the better when he became father to a baby girl, Theodora Rose, less than two months ago. Speaking to Graham Norton on his chat show, the 38-year-old singer admitted there were times he wanted to run off when his wife got pregnant, but is now enjoying every minute of fatherhood.

The British singer and his wife, Ayda Field, welcomed a daughter into the world in September. Talking to Graham Norton, Robbie Williams said that he is still over the moon at being a parent for the first time.

According to Daily Mail, he said, “I really do love it. I was worried before she came – I’d been a pop star since the age of 16 and I’d never done anything for myself and then all of a sudden I was being asked to take care of this life. I thought I might be this selfish person but you just melt. The baby came out and everything changed, cosmically, spiritually, life, everything.”

The “Candy” singer added, “I’m a new parent and I’ve still got that euphoria and she hasn’t p***ed me off yet.”

Robbie Williams also revealed how he and wife chose their daughter's name. He explained, “We wanted to call her Teddy but that’s bordering on celebrity nonsense and we thought what if she doesn’t go into showbiz and needs a professional name, so Theodora is her professional name and Teddy is the name she goes by at home.”

In the interview, Williams joked about the time when he mixed up the name of Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter, when the actress paid a visit to his house.

The star revealed on the show, “We were at my house in Los Angeles and the Coldplay boys had been over for a game of football and Gwyneth turned up.”

He quipped, “I was like, ‘Gwyneth Paltrow is in my house,’ and as she walked towards me I kept saying in my head, ‘say something to Gwyneth Paltrow, say something to Gwyneth Paltrow’ and I said, ‘Does Melon want some Apple?’”

Speaking about his friendship with Gary Barlow, Williams explained, “We’re older blokes, we’re more mature and he’s a very decent man. I call him the captain and I go to him for advice and stuff and I love him to bits and I think he loves me too.”

Robbie Williams was joined by Felix Baumgartner, Darcey Bussel and Paul O'Grady on the Graham Norton show, which airs on Friday night.
