Remember the pre-Internet days, when the only people who knew anything about your life were the people you actually told. There was no Twitter or Instagram or Facebook; just actual conversations about the goings-on in our everyday lives.

Now, 140 characters or six-second videos will do. Women announce their pregnancies with creative photos and clever tweets. But Robbie Williams is taking it to a whole new level. Because not only did the British singer document his wife, actress Ayda Field, giving birth to their second child on Twitter, he included video and photos — and worse yet, COMMENTARY — for all to enjoy. Gah!

Leading up to their son’s arrival on Monday, Williams posted a string of pics and videos of the couple at the hospital. Some of the videos included “Nurse, she’s out of her bed again” (as Ayda stretched her legs), “You’ll never walk alone” (with the couple pretending Robbie was the exhausted one) and “A river runs through it ….” as the doctor prepared to break his wife’s water. And as she pushed and had her legs in the air, he started to sing a song from Frozen. Ugh. That would’ve pushed most women over the edge.

After the successful delivery, Williams said they were still mulling over names but he weighed in at 8 lbs, 1 oz — but was quickly corrected by Field who said their son was 8 lbs, 2 oz., adding, “Every ounce counts, trust me.” Heh.

In the final video, “No Moms Were Harmed,” Williams gushed that he has “never been more in love and never been more proud of my wife.” Aw, that’s sweet. But isn’t that the kind of thing he should be telling her privately?

Honestly, though, does this look like a woman who wants everyone to see her go through labour?

Of course, she also managed to squeeze these bad boys on so who knows?

No, but really, Robbie totally had this covered.

Williams added that while the live-blogging “helped Ayda take her mind off the pain” he also hoped it entertained viewers. “It has made the experience really magical and whimsical and lovely.”

We suppose if Ayda really had a problem with it, she would’ve punched him in the face, threw his laptop out the window, or told him that she was closing her legs to him forever. But all you future dads, just know most women are probably going to be opposed to this idea. This is not the cool new thing to do and it should never ever be done. Like, ever. Like, never in a katrillion years. Got it?
