Abbey's "in love" with new baby Liberty!

Strictly Come Dancing champion Abbey Clancy confesses that she “just can’t stop staring at” one-week-old daughter Liberty.

It’s only been seven days since little Liberty Rose made her debut, but already doting mum Abbey Clancy is completely besotted.

The winner of Strictly 2014 and wife of footballer Peter Crouch has taken to social media to post a series of adorable photos of baby and big sister, four-year-old Sophia, with captions that reveal just how head-over-heels Abbey is for her growing family.

“Bath time!! Then I’m gonna stop, I promise #inlove” she posted alongside a pic of Sophia sporting braids and cuddling the new arrival who was swathed in a towel and looking serene.

Another pic showed a napping Liberty wrapped up tight in a pink onesie and fleecy blanket, with the caption “Sleeping beauty.”

Liberty Rose was born last Tuesday weighing 6lb 8oz. Announcing her safe delivery via Twitter, Abbey called the bundle her “perfect little princess”, joking that husband Peter needs all the help he can get now he’s “surrounded by girls!”

Married in June 2011, Abbey and Peter have often spoken of their desire for a large family, and the model announced her second pregnancy last December saying she and Peter were “super-excited” and “couldn't be happier.”

Sophia’s birth was captured for posterity by Abbey’s sister who filmed the whole thing. The Liverpudlian revealed to Marie Claire that the couple have shared the video with family and friends, admitting: “Every time Pete and I have a party and we've had a few, the birth video goes on. I think everyone I know has seen it. I shouldn't say that really, should I? Ha ha!”

Congratulations Abbey and Peter and keep sharing those Liberty Rose pics!
