23 September 2012, 08:17

The 'Candy' singer apparently tells a friend that name is nothing to do with former US president Theodore Roosevelt.

Robbie Williams has reportedly responded to rumours about the meaning of his baby girl Theodora Rose's name.

The baby – affectionately known as Teddy – was born this week and fans have been speculating that the child was named after former US president Theodore Roosevelt, who was also nicknamed Teddy.

As well as a similar first name and nickname, fans have apparently highlighted the similarities between "Rose" and "Roosevelt".

But, according to The Sun, Robbie has dismissed the rumours, insisting that he and his wife Ayda Field chose the traditional name because they "loved" it.  

He apparently told a friend: "We also wanted to choose a name that could be shortened so we could use the abbreviated name as her middle one — hence Theodora 'Teddy'.

"The Rose part is nothing to do with us viewing her as some future English rose. We just thought she looked like a lovely flower when we first saw her, so Rose it was."

Robbie unveiled a picture of his new baby on Twitter on Friday (21st September), telling fans the photo was after her "second nappy change".

As well as duties as a new father, Robbie is also promoting his new single 'Candy', which is taken from his forthcoming new album 'Take The Crown' and was added to the Capital FM playlist this week.
