The 38-year-old had previously said that he and Ayda planned to use a traditional name for their daughter.

‘No mad celebrity baby name. It’s not Appleesque. It’s a very solid, old-school name.’

He has also stated that he wants to raise his daughter in the UK rather than in LA where he and his Turkish-American wife live.

‘I don’t want to educate our baby in LA because I would much prefer her to have English sensibilities.

‘I want the baby to have an English passport, we’re still figuring out exactly whereabouts the baby is going to be brought up.

Take That star Gary Barlow was one of the first to wish Robbie well, tweeting: ‘Massive congrats Rob and Ayda. So happy for you.’

Congratulations!
