Peter Crouch reveals newborn son’s real name after announcing joke moniker

by Mother & Baby |

Abbey Clancy and Peter Crouch welcomed their fourth child together on Monday 3rd June - a baby boy, the couple's second son. When announcing the news, footballer Peter joked that they'd decided to call him Divock Samrat, named for Liverpool footballer Divock Origi and his favourite curry restaurant.

Of course, he immediately revealed it was a joke name - but they decided not to announce the name straight away, and have instead waited six weeks to reveal their newborn son's name is actually much more traditional, choosing Jack!

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Peter said, "We have just welcomed our fourth child, Jack, into the family and the wonderful chaos that comes with a new baby means it hasn't really hit me that I haven't gone back for pre-season training. Life is hectic in a brilliant way."

Peter originally announced the news of his son's birth a day after he was born, taking to Twitter with a beautiful snap of his son and the caption, 'Our beautiful baby boy was born Monday 3rd June mother and baby Divock Samrat Crouch are doing well.'

He then clarified that model Abbey and himself hadn't really chosen that name, writing in a second tweet, 'Our boy is beautiful the name is still to be clarified unfortunately Abs not going for Divock Samrat.'

Abbey has also posted a new photo of her son, sharing a photo of him looking up at the camera with the adorable caption, 'Little pudding.'

Abbey and Peter, who got married in June 2011, are also parents to Sophia, eight, Liberty, four, and 18-month-old Johnny.
