Robbie Williams announced he and wife Ayda Field were expecting their first child in a blog post on his website this morning (March 30th).

The former Take That singer, whose wife is pictured in the Daily Mail wearing her diamond ring, used an original term of phrase to make the revelation.

He wrote: “I’ve been keeping a secret from you all … Me and Ayda are going to be mummy and daddy this year.

“We had sex! It works!”

It was certainly an un-dramatic and energised way of telling the world about his first child, with the singer admitting he and Ayda had seen scans and cried.

He added: “Looked at babies in commercials and teared up … The nursery is already planned.”

It seems the happy pair could end up raising the child in the mansion of the late Michael Jackson as Williams has reportedly expressed interest in purchasing the $23.9 million home.
