Robbie Williams is to become a father for the first time.
The 'Angels' singer has announced his wife Ayda Field is pregnant and says he can't wait for the baby to arrive.
Writing on his website, the Take That star said: ''Hey friendlies, I've been keeping a secret from you all. Me and Ayda are going to be a Mummy and Daddy this year!!!!!!!! We had sex! It works!
''We've seen scans and cried... looked at babies in commercials and teared up... the nursery is already planned. Basically I'm in love with a little person growing in mummy's belly... and can't wait to be a daddy. Crying now.
''Much love, much joy. Roberto, Mum and Little Bump. xxx (sic)''
Robbie, 38, and Ayda, 32, married in August 2010 and they have made no secret of their desire to have a family.
Speaking last year, he said: ''She wants a football team. I want two. A boy and a girl.
''[We're going to call them] Woody and Sonny! Cool, eh? She wants to get on it now, but, I just got back off tour. There's a stretch from now until Christmas and then, we'll do some practicing.''
