Robbie Williams has opened up for the first time about having his third child with wife Ayda Field.

The X Factor pair announced the happy news last week that they had had a new baby, named Colette (Coco) Josephine Williams, via a surrogate, saying it had been "a very special secret".

Speaking about the new arrival, Robbie has now told The Sun: "Coco is the most chilled baby I've ever known.

"It's funny. The first baby you have, 'Shh, it's sleeping,' then you hear someone coming in that closes the door and you run downstairs and you go, 'Shh! The baby!'

"Then the third one, the television's on, the kids are playing, the dogs are barking, the baby stays asleep and the world doesn't end. I wonder if the baby is so relaxed because we are relaxed."

The singer continued: "The kids are getting on really well with her, there's no jealousy. In fact there's just lots of love and cuddles and Teddy wants to feed her all the time. So that's what's going on."

Writing last week on Instagram, Ayda said: "It has been a very long and difficult path to get here, which is why we have kept it on the down low.

"Family comes in all forms, and this little lady, who is biologically ours, was carried by an incredible surrogate mother, to whom we will be eternally grateful."

She added: "We are over the moon to have this beautiful baby girl in our lives and so blessed that we live in a world which makes this possible. As with Teddy and Charlie, we ask that you respect Coco's privacy and allow us to grow into our new team of 5!"

The X Factor airs on ITV.
