Robbie Williams: ‘Deep inside, I’m still 16′
Robbie Williams still feels like he is 16 years old.
The 38-year-old singer – who recently became a father for the first time when wife Ayda Field gave birth to their daughter Theodora ‘Teddy’ Rose – doesn’t feel he has developed more than when he first joined Take That, so is finding it hard to adjust to the idea of being a parent and taking responsibility.
He said: “Deep inside I’m still 16. A lot of my skills stayed exactly at that level when I started my career at the age of 16. From then on everything was looked after for me, I always had people around me who managed and provided everything for me. And now there is this thought of being a father. I never had to take care of myself – and now all of a sudden I have to take care of a little human being.”
The ‘Candy’ star admits he is going through a “confusing and scary” time in his life as he is finally establishing his own identity.
He added to Germany’s GQ magazine: “At the moment there are tough negotiations between my former and my current self. Every day – literally every day I come to new realisations about who the f**k I am and what I should become. That is confusing and scary. Because I’m still the eternal teenager.”
