Robbie Williams has chronicled the birth of his new baby by posting intimate videos and pictures of the birth on Twitter.
Williams documented his wife Ayda Field’s entire labour on social media and provided live commentary from the hospital room. He tweeted: “It’s been a very emotional, amazing few hours and we’re really happy and honoured that you experienced the journey with us.”
The couple announced the birth of their baby boy in one final video message moments after Field gave birth. In the video, entitled ‘No Moms Were Harmed’, Williams said he’s “never been more in love and never been more proud of my wife”.
It was the last in a string of videos that the singer uploaded, including one of him singing a rendition of ‘Let It Go’ from Disney film Frozen, just as Field was going into labour, as well as one of him dancing to his hit single ‘Candy’.
Some of Williams’ posts showed a picture of Field wearing high-heeled shoes in the hospital bed. In one video, a doctor explained that he was about to break Field’s water after 10 hours in labour, and Williams is seen to respond: “Will any of it get on my gown?”
He added: “Everything we have done has been a bit of a laugh and it has helped Ayda take her mind off the pain. We hope we made you laugh in the process.”
Ayda Field gave birth to daughter Theodora Rose in September 2012. The couple, who have been married since 2010, announced in April that they were expecting their second child together.
