COULD this be Robbie Williams’ next major project?

The Take That singer looked at home holding the babies of Sunderland mums Lisa Wallbank and Lindsey Talbot outside the Stadium of Light.

Robbie, currently wowing Wearside audiences with the bands Progress Live shows, was happy to spare a minute for two of his youngest fans.

The singer, who recently married model Ayda Field, cooed over little Ruby and Lily, who are both four months old, as a pal warned him he was “getting broody”.

Take That fan Lisa, 27, of Silksworth, said: “He was really nice and he was over the moon with the babies and happy to give them a cuddle.

“There was someone with him who might have been his PA and they laughed and said he’s getting broody.”

A stroll to the stadium proved to be worth it for Lisa and Lindsey.

The pals decided to take a walk down there to see if they could get a sneak peek of the tour and hear the band rehearsing.

But they scored one better when Robbie pulled up alongside them.

“As we passed the main entrance this van came round with blacked out windows and I said “that’s Robbie Williams in there”.

“Lindsey didn’t believe us until he got out and then he waited for us,” Lisa, who has tickets to see the band tonight (MON).

“It was amazing, we couldn’t believe he stopped and spoke to us. What are the chances of that happening?

“After it happened, we phoned everyone to let them know, including my sister who camped and queued for our tickets so she wasn’t too happy.”

The Take That fans also let Robbie know how disappointed they were to discover they were no longer attending the first night of the show after an extra two nights were added to the Sunderland leg of the tour.

“We said we were gutted because the Monday was supposed to be the first one and we got tickets and then they went and put on another two shows before it.

“He said they were in high demand and he was really nice about it.”

Lisa and Lindsey are planning on getting the photos printed onto T-shirts, which they will wear to tonight’s event.
