Peter Crouch Announces His Baby Is Called 'Divock' And Everyone Falls For It

First and foremost, congratulations to Peter Crouch and his partner Abby Clancy, who welcomed their fourth child to the world on Tuesday afternoon.

The 38-year-old revealed the news on Twitter earlier, but in the most Crouchy way ever.

He posted a picture of the baby boy with the caption:

"Our beautiful baby boy was born Monday 3rd June mother and baby Divock Samrat Crouch are doing well."

That's right. We all thought Peter had named his son after Liverpool striker and Champions League winner Divock Origi, and some publications believed it.

But 13 minutes later, the Burnley striker admitted that partner Abby wasn't exactly keen on the name Divock Samrat.

If you're an avid listener to The Peter Crouch podcast, then you'll know that Samrat is the name of Crouch's local curry house.

He even recorded his final show at the Indian restaurant in London.

The renowned Peter Crouch Podcast has become a huge success since the first episode was aired in September last year.

If you haven't yet heard of it, Crouch, Tom Fordyce and Chris Stark host weekly chats about how to be a professional footballer.

The lads have recorded 24 episodes in all, which includes an insight on everything from dressing rooms, transfers, keeping on the good side of your manager and where to sit on the team bus.

To put the overall success of the podcast into perspective, Crouch, Fordyce and BBC Radio 1 DJ Chris Stark will host their own festival with live music and special guests.

It will take place on Saturday 15 June at indigo at The O2 in London.

So what should you expect if you manage to get a ticket?

Crouch has gone into real detail about his career on the podcast in weeks gone by, including the time he beat a seven year old Brooklyn Beckham at Table Tennis.

You'll probably see Peter enjoying a good dance as well, with live music expended at the O2 next month.
