London: Singer Robbie Williams has been crying a lot after learning he is to become a father for the first time with wife Ayda Field.

The `Angels` hitmaker is so pleased about the prospect of becoming a dad alongside his former Take That bandmates Gary Barlow and Mark Owen that he has been unable to keep his emotions in check, Contactmusic reported.

"He says he`s been crying a lot because he`s so pleased. Mark`s expecting and Gary, so there will be three little Take That babies in one go," said Pete Conway, Williams` father.

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old singer, who tied the knot with Field in August 2010, said he was overwhelmed by the support he has received in the wake of his baby announcement.

"Overwhelmed with all the well-wishing. Bless you all. To fill you in we don`t know if it`s a girl or a boy. We`ve no names yet either. Maybe you can give us a few ideas? Girl/boy. Go on friendlies, do your best," Williams posted on his blog.
