Like, the details of his failed married life, his romantic unions have remained a suspense for his fans too.

And as far as his children are concerned, well, they are all settled in Los Angeles and are doing their own things with the love and support of their father.

A close pal of Robbie shared few details regarding Robbie's family and said,

"There's a lack of bravado to Robbie, for someone who has accomplished so much. He has a wonderful soul, and a warmth and integrity that I find irresistible. He has a very natural, engaged relationship with his children, too"

Safe to say, the man is successful when it comes to his fatherhood!
