Robbie Williams loves his wife because of the trust and humour they share.

The 38-year-old singer is closer to spouse Ayda Field - with who he has four-month-old daughter Teddy - than anyone else and says that is because of the bond they have.

Asked who he is closest to, he said: ''My wife Ayda, because she's somebody I trust implicitly and understand.

''And I love that she also trusts and gets me in return. She's also really beautiful, clever, smart and makes me laugh. Our madness dovetails really well.''

Robbie has previously battled drug addiction and says these days, his idea of a good time after a show is watching television with his little girl.

He told Grazia magazine: ''After a gig last year, I tweeted a picture of me with my baby daughter Teddy.

''We sat in an armchair watching to football on TV together. That's the after-show party and ultimate relaxation for me now: baby in one hand, TV remote in the other and a chocolate in my mouth.''
