The Take That star, who welcomed his first child with wife Ayda Field on Tuesday, opened up about his hopes for daughter Teddy.
“All I want is for her to have manners. To say, ‘Yes please’ and ‘Thank you’, and to be kind,” he said on BBC Radio 1’s Greg James Show
“Those are the things I want her to be and if she’s those things then she can get away with murder for me,” he added.
“I just want a really quirky, kind kid. As long as she’s kind and has got good manners then we’re cool.”
Robbie, who’s known for his wild character, seems as if he’s following celeb mum-to-be Adele’s lead by trying to curb his swearing to set a good example for his daughter.
“I do have a potty mouth, I really do. I am going to have to curb it.”
The new dad took to Twitter to reveal Teddy’s already been enjoying bedtime stories, especially a children’s book by Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.
“Ballerina Rosie may become Teddy’s favourite book. RW,” he wrote.
“Just realised That Robbie Williams’ baby has the same name as my little sister, Teddie Rose………sweet. best name,” she wrote.
Aw, sounds as if Robbie is loving parenthood already!
