Robbie and his US actress wife recently announced that they had chosen a traditional name fortheir daughter.
He said: "No mad celebrity babyname. I dohave a sort of celebrity name but it's not Appleesque. It's a very solid,old-school name."
His former Take That band-mate Gary Barlow and singer Ronan Keating both congratulated the couple on Twitter:
Massive congrats Rob and Ayda.So happy for you
Congrats to @robbiewilliams and Ayda.
The singer also expressed concern last week that he may miss the London birth while touring in other parts of the UK but said he had a private jet on standby.
He said: "There's a plane on standby and if I get that phone call I've got to go."
Robbie and Ayda have been dating since 2006. The couple married in 2010.
