Robbie Williams would take drugs with his daughter.

The 39-year-old singer - who has admitted to trying heroin and cocaine in the past - might have put his wild ways behind him, but says he would sacrifice his sobriety for the sake of his nine-month-old daughter Theodora 'Teddy' Rose and help her take the "best drugs possible" should she choose to go down that route when she's older.

He told Australia's new magazine: "I doubt she'll be like me. Touch wood, and follow that with a lot of love and a lot of luck, she won't go there or have to go there.

"If unfortunately that does happen, I'll know what to do. Which is make sure she's got the best drugs possible - and take them with her."

The Candy hitmaker has even penned a track about his past troubles, which led him to check into rehab in 2007 after a lengthy battle with booze, depression and prescription drug addiction, and has dedicated the emotional song to his baby daughter.

Robbie revealed: "It goes, 'Sit down, close the door I think it's time you knew the score, why you feel weird. One day you'll be told about, how Daddy let his demons out, yeah he makes them scream and shout.

"So what better when you're old enough, and you're out on your own and stuff, if you start losing hold of love it's because...

"Your uncle sells drugs, your cousin is a cutter, your grandma is a fluffer, your grandad's in the gutter, your mother is a nutter, you're a mad motherf**ker'. "

Nevertheless, the pop star - who is married to Ayda Field - is busy planning Teddy's future and is hoping to set her up with family friend Adele's young son, Angelo, who he has nicknamed Little Peanut.

Robbie joked: "Her son and my daughter go on play dates. Little Peanut is on the list of potential suitors for Teddy."
