Robbie Williams has been offering Adele parenting tips.

The 'Someone Like You' hitmaker and her partner Simon Konecki welcomed a son into the world earlier this month, just a few weeks after the Take That star's wife Ayda Field gave birth to their daughter Theodora - affectionately known as 'Teddy' - and the 'Candy' singer is happy to help the new mother if he can.

He is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: ''My wife and Adele are friends and I think my wife will be offering advice.

''Adele has a massive heart; she'll be a great mum.''

Robbie also revealed he has been more than happy to change his daughter's nappies - as he believes it is the best way for them to form a bond.

He added: ''Mum's doing breastfeeding, which means baby is with her for a good hour. Obviously I've got breasts but they don't lactate!

''I'm chief nappy changer. It's the only way dads get to bond. It's like a masala, or sometimes a Thai curry.''

Meanwhile, Adele has splashed out on tickets for one of The Rolling Stones anniversary concerts in London to thank her family for their help and support since she gave birth.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Obviously The Rolling Stones 50th anniversary tickets sold out in just seven minutes.

''But all Adele had to do was pick up her phone and she managed to secure five.

''She wants to treat her mum and family and she's a huge fan of the band.''
