Robbie Williams is hoping for a son.
The 'Candy' hitmaker and wife Ayda Field are expecting their second child together and he would love to have a little brother for their daughter Theodora 'Teddy' Rose, 20 months, though he insists another girl would be ''cool''.
He said: ''We don't know if it's a boy or a girl but we're going to find out.
''If we have a girl, it'll be totally cool but I would quite like a little boy.
''Last time I said that as long as it was healthy, I didn't mind. Then we found out we were having a girl and it was a really strange emotion. I was like, 'What am I going to do with a girl?' ''
The couple intend to find out the sex of the baby in the same way the planned to with their first child, but Robbie admits they will need to be more organised this time around.
He explained to The Sun newspaper: ''With Teddy, the doctor put the sex into an envelope. We went to dinner and the plan was to open it at the end of dinner... but she forgot the envelope.
''I think we're going to do the same thing -- but remember the envelope this time. I don't think we can do it any other way.''
The 40-year-old star kicked off a new tour this week and, with Ayda, Teddy, his dad Pete Conway and his mother-in-law joining him on the road, he admits it is very different to previous jaunts and his wife and daughter's needs come first.
He said: ''It's a very loving, very safe environment. Our biggest concern these days is that we don't travel through Teddy's nap time.
''We don't get time to worry about us or the show.
''We've got it all going on backstage. Ayda is the happiest and centred and then she's completely not for a few hours, the whole rollercoaster of emotions... ''
