Robbie Williams: "My daughter is a better singer than me"

Robbie Williams: "My daughter is a better singer than me"

14 Dec 2019

Robbie Williams believes his eldest daughter Theodora (Teddy) is "destined" for a career in music.

The former Take That singer has been one of Britain's biggest musical acts since making his debut in the boyband in 1990, but speaking to Britain's Daily Star newspaper he predicted seven-year-old Teddy will go on to beat her dad's success.

“I’m not the most talented singer in my family, my daughter is more talented than me, Teddy is a fantastic singer, really," he gushed. “Already she’s got a musical ear and it’s incredible.”

The star, who broke away from the band in 1995 and recently released his 13th solo U.K. number one album, The Christmas Present, went on to joke she gets all of her talent from him, insisting his actress wife Ayda Field can’t hold a note – and is so bad that he -denied her a duet on his new LP.

“I am a better singer than Ayda," Robbie affirmed. "Yeah she wanted to be on it but she didn’t quite make it, next time.”

It's not the first time Robbie has gushed about his daughter's musical talents - he shared a video of Teddy singing his smash hit Angels earlier this year.
