The pop star, who announced on Monday his wife Ayda Field is pregnant with their second child, said his schedule is too gruelling.

Rob, 40, who is touring Europe with his 46-date Swings Both Ways tour, said: “Logistically, I can’t do it. I have the tour and I’m going to be a dad again.”

But the star said his decision does not mean he has completely called time on appearing with the manband.

He told The Sun: “It doesn’t mean to say I won’t join in along the way. Whatever happens, I am absolutely going to be in Take That – I love being in Take That.”

But he added: “After the tour wraps, I’m going away for a year or two.”

Ayda, 34, is due to give birth in November and Robbie says he is determined to be around for the happy occasion.

Although the couple do not know the sex of the baby, Robbie said he would really love to have a son, as the couple already have a daughter – 20-month-old Theodora Rose, known as Teddy.

He said: “If we have a girl, it’ll be totally cool but I would quite like a little boy.”

Robbie’s 10th solo tour has become a family affair as the star has taken Ayda, Teddy, his dad Pete Conway and his wife as well as his mother-in-law.

He said: “It’s a very loving, very safe environment. Our biggest concern these days is that we don’t travel through Teddy’s nap time.’
