The couple has been together since 2006 and got married in 2010. During their courtship, they had several brief splits but Ayda credits Hollywood star Cameron for reuniting them after their final break-up.
"When we were first going out, a couple of months in we had a break up - well, we had a couple actually," Ayda said during her appearance on British show Loose Women on Wednesday (27Apr16). "But this was the final one. We were broken up, I was shooting a show and he went out to the Chateau Marmont, which is this very fancy hotel in L.A., and Cameron Diaz was there. And he said that he was talking to her and while he was talking to her, she said to him, 'You obviously still love your girlfriend, you need to go back to her.' And he called me that night, we met up and we've been together ever since."
Robbie and Ayda are now parents to two children - three-year-old Theodora and 18-month-old Charlton. But Ayda will always remember Cameron's involvement in her relationship.
"I feel like, if she's watching I just want to say thank you Cameron!" Ayda added. "I feel a very special place for her in my heart."
It was recently reported that British pop star Robbie is set to return to the studio with his former band Take That. The Let Me Entertain You singer originally left the group in 1995 to go solo, and reunited with former bandmates for 2010 album Progress and the subsequent tour in 2011 before leaving again.
Reports circulated last year (15) suggesting he was in talks to rejoin the boyband, which is now a three piece following the departure of Jason Orange in 2014, to mark their 25th anniversary in 2017. And Robbie has now gone back into the studio to work on new Take That music, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
Robbie is reportedly writing with Mark Owen, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald for the first time since 2010 on tracks which will appear on a Greatest Hits compilation album. He will then reportedly join them on a 25th anniversary tour in 2017.
