Robbie Williams confesses he didn't think marriage to Ayda Field would last

Robbie Williams confessed that he “wouldn’t have put money” on him lasting with his wife Ayda Field for 18 years. The former Take That singer opened up about his marriage to actress Ayda during an episode of Rob Brydon’s podcast.

The Rock DJ hitmaker tied the knot with his wife in 2010, but explained that he didn’t think the marriage would last as long as it currently has.

When asked by Rob Brydon how they first met, Robbie said: “Blind date.” Brydon replied: “Was it? Set up by a mate?” to which Robbie confirmed and said: “Yeah.”

Rob Brydon then said: “Who thought – she’d be very good for Rob?” “Yeah, and those things normally don’t work,” Robbie joked. “But we’re going into our 18th year.”

“Now in rock and roll terms, that’s astonishing,” said Brydon, to which Robbie said: “Dude, I would not have put money on it.” The pair share four children together: Teddy, Charlie, Coco and Beau.

Also during the episode, Robbie admitted that he has three family houses in London, Los Angeles and Switzerland, but says that they’re “too expensive” to run.

“It’s too big, it’s too expensive. It’s like having blessed options,” said Robbie. “So what’s happening in the Los Angeles house, right now? Is it all dark and quiet?” asked Brydon.

“No, there are eight dogs there,” Robbie replied, to which Brydon replied: “You’ve got American dogs that you only see when you’re in America?”

“Yeah. We’ve got two dogs here [London] and they are the emotional support animals for when we get on the plane.” Robbie lives near Holland Park in West London in a mansion thought to be worth £17.5 million.

Otherwise known as Woodland House, the luxury mansion has an estimated 47 rooms. His lavish property in Switzerland is reportedly worth a staggering £24 million. 

He purchased his third home with wife Ayda near Zurich during the pandemic. He previously owned a house in Los Angeles, but sold his Beverly Hills pad to musician DJ Khaled.
