Watching football with daughter one of Robbie's 'happiest moments'

Robbie Williams experienced one of "happiest moments" of his life - watching soccer on TV with his baby daughter.

The 'Candy' hitmaker - who recently became a father for the first time when wife Ayda Field gave birth to Theodora 'Teddy' Rose - is a hands-on dad who loves nothing more than settling down to watch his favourite sporting highlights programme with the little girl.

He is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: "The mum's doing the Mother Earth thing with the boobs and the breast-feeding so I change nappies and nurse Teddy watching 'Match Of The Day'.

"Honestly, that was one of the most happiest moments of my life - me, baby and 'Match Of The Day'.

"I do a good line in burping and I make sure to cradle her in my arms - it's very much Lion King stuff."

As well as watching sport with two-month-old Teddy, Robbie recently revealed he likes rapping to her.

When asked what lullabies he sings to his daughter during a Twitter live chat with iTunes to celebrate the release of new album 'Take the Crown', Robbie, 38, responded: "The Chronic, Dre Dre, 'Ain't Nothing

but a G thang' cos nursery rhymes are boring (sic)."

The expletive filled 'Nuthin' but a G Thang' - which also has lyrics about smoking marijuana - was a hit for Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg in 1992, reaching number two on the US singles chart and peaking at number 31 in the UK charts.
