Sometimes it seemed as if English singer-songwriter Robbie Williams was as well-known for his rock n’ roll antics as his hits (‘Angel.‘) But in an interview with the Facebook in London yesterday he revealed that the tender song, ‘Go Gentle’ was written for his baby daughter, who was born Theodora Rose Williams but is nicknamed Teddy. (Robbie, 39, married Los Angeles-born Ayda Field, 34, in 2010, after dating for four years and proposing in 2009.)
It’s about his fear that his daughter could grow up to meet someone, well…..like him.
‘[The track is about being] worried she might meet someone like me – and what she should do if she does,’ Robbie said.
“For all your days and nights,
I’m going to be there.”
On the eve of releasing his 11th studio album, ‘ Swing Both Ways’ later this month, the loving Dad explained he was enjoying his role as a new parent.
He said: ‘So far so good – it’s been an absolute pleasure to love her and care for her.’
Who ever thought we’d see the day?
