He may be one of the most recognisable music icons in the UK, but it looks as if Robbie Williams might be swerving some of his parental responsibilities with his third child.

The 45-year-old singer’s wife, Ayda Field, revealed on Loose Women that he has not been changing as many nappies with daughter Coco, who was born in September last year.

When panelist Janet Street-Porter asked whether Williams has taken an active role in caring for their new child, Field replied that he’s doing “nothing”.

She said: “No nappy changing, but he does sing to Coco.

“To be fair, he is a good nappy changer and he does clean the nappies sometimes, but come to think of it, with number three, he has not done as many nappies by any stretch.

“I'm just gonna throw one in his face.”

Field also discussed her upcoming vow renewal with Williams, who surprised her on her 40th birthday with a proposal to get married again after their intimate original ceremony in August 2010.

She revealed that the ceremony is important for her and her mother, who was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

“With everything that's going on, all of these moments need to be celebrated,” said Field.

“I want her to be there for them and focus on the celebration aspect of things.”

Field spoke frankly about her mother’s diagnosis, which was confirmed just before the family attended Princess Eugenie’s wedding to wine merchant Jack Brooksbank in October.

She said: “It is a very confusing time because there are such wonderful blessings in my life.

“There were all these moments of joy and then there were these sharp drop-offs where I would be awake lying in bed crying.

“You’re kind of free falling and you have to learn everything you can.”
