James Morrison's baby daughter Elsie doesn't like listening to his singing
James Morrison's baby doesn't like his singing.
The 'Wonderful World' singer - whose girlfriend recently gave birth to their first child together, daughter Elsie - says the tot is unimpressed with his vocal skills.
He said: "I sing her to sleep, but she cries a lot of the time, she's like 'Waaaa!' and I'm going, 'Don't cry baby.' I don't sing my own songs to her though, there's plenty of time for that."
Although Elsie is unimpressed with her father's musical talents, James has learned a new skill from her.
He said: "I taught myself nappies, I'm pretty proud of my nappy changing skills actually."
James also revealed his new material was inspired by his impending fatherhood - even though he vowed to keep the experience private.
He told BANG Showbiz: "I didn't really know how I was going to deal with it, I wanted to it be a private thing but I got so excited by it, I couldn't help writing about it all."
The singer insisted he had no input in the naming of his daughter, but is pleased with his girlfriend's choice.
He added: "My girlfriend was just saying, 'I want to call her Elsie', so I just said, 'Whatever.' It's a classic name as well, I think it will see her through until she's an old lady."
