Robbie Williams' wife Ayda Field admits they make kids fly in economy while they go first class

Robbie Williams' wife Ayda Field admits they make kids fly in economy while they go first class

Just like a famous TV chef, the former Take That bandmember has strict rules for traveling

Robbie Williams’ wife Ayda Field has admitted the pair make their kids fly in economy while they kick back in first class while travelling.

The ‘Angels’ singer married the Fresh Meat actor back in 2010 and the pair share four children together.

Williams is currently doing global press for his new self-titled Netflix documentary series, featuring ‘thousands of hours of behind-the-scenes footage he has never seen’.

The synopsis for Robbie Williams includes: “Robbie’s way of exorcising his demons is to go back through every single frame, every up and every down.

“Platinum albums, sell out gigs, adoring crowds; drink, drugs, rock bottom and whatever comes next when you get there and you can’t stop digging. This is a story of unimaginable fame at a tender age — and the price you pay.”

During the four-part docu-series, Field opens up about Williams breaking up with her when he was struggling with a drug addiction.

However, the pair later got back together and have strict views on raising their kids to not be your average nepo babies.

Field confessed they don’t get to join them in first class as it’s a privilege to be earned: “My kids fly economy whenever we fly. I turn left and they turn right. That’s terrible. I mean, people will think I’m such a d**k.”

She added to the Sunday Times: “There’s no interest in raising brats. My kids will know [economy] is where they will sit in a plane until they can pay to put themselves in a different part of the plane.”

And Field and Williams aren’t the only famous family living by this travel rule.

Gordon Ramsay and his wife Tana have also flown luxury while their children fly in the cheaper seats.

The TV chef was previously asked if he was surprised by criticism for this: “No. I have got to keep it real with the kids, and also, I think just getting kids at the age of five, six and seven, used to first class and those big seats, they do not need the space, they get entertainment on their iPads.

“So I like to think about what you can do with the money when you land, rather than paying out thousands of dollars for eight, nine ten-year-olds to sit in first class.

“I do not want them sat there with a 10 course fucking menu with champagne. I am not embarrassed. It is my wife and I's choice to discipline them and to keep them real."

Seems fair enough really, although you would be jealous of your dad reclining his seat back with a fancy meal while you’re cramped up with a bland curry.
