New dad Robbie Williams said his daughter will be able to get away with murder with him if she is well-mannered and kind.
The singer became a father for the first time on Tuesday when wife Ayda Field gave birth to Theodora Rose.
In an interview with BBC Breakfast yesterday, Take That singer Williams spoke of his simple aspirations for his child.
And after the build-up of pregnancy, the 38-year-old said: “I’m now really looking forward to getting into it.”
The star had just wrapped up a series of small shows around the UK prior to the birth at London’s Portland Clinic.
Reflecting on his hopes, he said: “All I want her to have is manners - ‘Yes, please’ and ‘Thank you’ - and (to be) kind.”
If the youngster has those qualities, he added, “she can get away with murder with me”.
Later, speaking to Radio 1 presenter Greg James, he said the couple had still not decided where they would bring up their daughter, affectionately known as Teddy.
Williams has a home in Wiltshire but has also been based for a number of years in Los Angeles.
Asked where she would be educated, he said: “I don’t know where, because if she’s educated over here, she’s going to get a sense of irony which is very, very important, and if she’s educated over there she might not. And that’s all I’ll say.”
