London - Gary Barlow has sent "massive" congratulations to Robbie Williams after he became a father for the first time.

The Take That star is thrilled for his bandmate after his wife Ayda Field gave birth to their daughter Theodora Rose on Tuesday.

Gary - whose fourth child Poppy was tragically delivered stillborn last month - tweeted: "Massive congrats Rob and Ayda. So happy for you."

'She did so well'

Robbie's best friend Jonathan Wilkes also took to Twitter to express his delight at the new arrival.

He wrote: "Just had the best news!"

It is believed Ayda went into labour eight days early, with the baby - who will be known as Teddy - born at London's Portland Hospital at 15:33 and Robbie was present for the delivery. She weighed 7lb 4oz.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Robbie was at Ayda's side throughout - she did so well. They spent their first night together as a happy family."

Announcing the news on his official website, a delighted Robbie said: "Baby, Mummy and Daddy are all rockin'."

The 38-year-old singer and 33-year-old Ayda began dating in 2006 and married in August 2010.
