British singer Robbie Williams has suggested that he might be pulling a “John Travolta” by having a baby with his wife Ayda Field, a reference to persistent gay rumors both men have faced.

On the GQ Men of the Year Awards red carpet in London, Williams asked a reporter from Showbiz 411 if she knew the name of a man on the carpet, saying: “That would be who I would go out with if I was gay.”

In accepting the award for Icon of the Year, Williams returned to the gay theme by making a joke at Travolta's expense.

“I was googling myself today and the first search comes up with is 'Robbie Williams gay.' And I've got a wife, she's pregnant so that's put paid to that one, then. Doing the full John Travolta,” William said.

Williams added a pitch for his forthcoming solo album titled Take The Crown scheduled for a November 5 release.
