Robbie Williams: From secret back waxing to alien invasions
"It's ok, I've totally got this."

The 40-year-old singer spent 24 hours documenting the labour process in the hospital with videos and quirky tweets. Then he made a video to announce the news of their second child's arrival.

"So he's here!" the pop star said in a clip he posted to YouTube. "Its 3:10[pm] on Monday and we've been up for way over 24 hours now."

Wax on wax off

Robbie was reduced to tears when he opted to get his back waxed, as revealed in a home video shared by his wife Ayda Field in February.

The aliens have landed

In 2008, Robbie revealed he was ready to quit his pop career... to become a full-time UFO chaser!

While being interviewed by singer Joss Stone he made the weird confession, telling her he'd been visited by little green men three times.

"I was at the Beverly Hills Hotel and I was lying on my sun lounger outside at night, looking up," he said. "Then, about 300 foot above me, there was this square thing which just passed over my head silently and then shot off," claimed the star.

Love is blind

Robbie met his wife Ayda on a blind date in 2007 after the pair were setup by mutual friends. The Take That singer recalled how Ayda visited his home for a party and the singer initially thought she was pregnant because she'd worn a baggy dress borrowed from a friend. 

Put down those keys

In 2011, Robbie revealed that he still can't drive. Despite being nearly 40, he had yet to try and pass his test. "I don't have a driver's licence. In London you just don't drive because the traffic is terrible, so you get cabs to go everywhere, which has left me being 37 and still without a driver's licence in Los Angeles," he said.
