Although the pair are having a son, Robin-John revealed he initially believed they received a ‘sign’ from Robin that they were having a girl.
He said: ‘We had our first appointment with Colin Davis, the obstetrician who delivered our two sons, at the end of October…
‘As we sat down in the waiting room, the Bee Gees hit More Than A Woman came on the radio. The timing of it was such a surprise that we couldn’t help wondering if it was a sign.
‘We didn’t know we were expecting a boy at this stage and initially thought the title of the song could be my father’s way of telling us we were having a girl.’

The father-of-three also said he has a ‘very musical family’, saying: ‘The children are growing up like I did with my father. He was my dad and my best friend, but never pushed music on to me; he just exposed me to it.
‘I went to concerts, writing and studio sessions with him and that’s how I caught the music bug. Now I’m doing the same with our kids.’
