Robbie Williams and Ayda Field have welcomed a third child together via a surrogate after a “long and difficult” struggle to have another baby.
Colette (Coco) Josephine Williams was born this weekend and the surrogate mom is doing well. “She came out of the womb with jazz hands,” Robbie said jokingly.
Happy parents Robbie and Ayda, who both star as judges in the latest series of X Factor, announced the “secret baby” in a beautiful Instagram post.
“So we have been keeping a very special secret!” Ayda writes. “We are delighted to share with you that we have had a baby girl… welcome to the world Colette (Coco) Josephine Williams! It has been a very long and difficult path to get here, which is why we have kept it on the down low.
“Family comes in all forms, and this little lady, who is biologically ours, was carried by an incredible surrogate mother, to whom we will be eternally grateful.
“We are over the moon to have this beautiful baby girl in our lives and so blessed that we live in a world which makes this possible.
“As with Teddy and Charlie, we ask that you respect Coco’s privacy and allow us to grow into our new team of 5! #TeamWilliams.”
Ayda and Robbie got married 8 years ago. Colette joins sister Theodora (Teddy) Rose (5) and brother Charlton (Charlie) Valentine (3).
