Robbie Williams' mother is putting pressure on him to have children.
The 'Bodies' singer - who is dating actress Ayda Field - has revealed his mother Janet is so desperate for him to settle down and start a family, she told people he was already engaged to try and hurry him along.
He said: "I'm probably going to get married but I didn't get engaged on the radio the other week. It was just part of the interview. Then my mum went, 'Oh yes, oh yes. I've bought the hat, I've bought a card.' She just wants grandkids. She just wants to speed up the process."
Last month, Robbie jokingly proposed to his lover of three-years during a live interview with an Australian radio station.
He said to Ayda: "Will you marry me, baby? Ayda Field, I love you so much, would you mind being my betrothed until the end of time?"
The 30-year-old beauty replied: "Yes, I'll marry you."
The next day, Janet claimed the engagement was real and admitted she was "excited" about seeing her son getting wed.
She said: "It's a lovely match. She's a lovely girl.
"We don't always have to have the ring, but there is one. I'm very excited."
