He wrote on his blog: "Praise be, it's Theodora Rose Williams, affectionately known as Teddy."

He added, "Mummy and Daddy are all rockin."

The blog post didn't say where the baby was born, but Williams had said previously that a London birth was planned.

Williams announced the baby news in March, writing on his blog, "I've been keeping a secret from all - me and Ayda are going to be mummy and daddy this year."

The couple tied the knot in August 2010.
