Robbie Williams wanted a son

London: ‘Take That’ star Robbie Williams was initially disappointed to learn he was to be a father to a little girl, but having experienced fatherhood to Theodora `Teddy` Rose, he only wants daughters in the future.

The 38-year-old singer, whose wife Ayda Field gave birth to Theodora `Teddy` Rose in September, was secretly hoping for a son because he wanted to have a little boy who would share his passion for soccer, reported Daily Mirror online.

"I was gutted. Which isn`t going to endear me. Everybody was saying, `What do you want?` And I was one of those who said, `As long as it`s healthy, I don`t care`," Williams said.

"But we found out it was a girl and I was gutted. I knew what to do with a boy, I take him to football (soccer). I know how that works, I`ve been one," he added.

However, the pop star said that raising Teddy has made him change his mind and he hopes all her future siblings are girls.

"Now, I want four more and I want them all to be girls and I couldn`t be happier," he said.

Williams and his family are currently living in the UK after previously being based in Los Angeles and though they are unsure how long they will stay, the singer said that he is keen for his daughter not to have an American accent.
