Peter Crouch has finally revealed the name of his baby son - and it's the real deal this time.

The footballer, 38, announced that the tot has been named Jack, six weeks after wife Abbey Clancy, 33, gave birth.

His news comes after he joked that the little one was called Divock Samrat, named after Liverpool FC star Divock Origi and his favourite curry house.

Writing in 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 had announced Jack's birth on his Twitter page when the baby boy was just a day old.

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

The sportsman later revealed that the name had been a joke on That Peter Crouch Podcast - and said Abbey had been in on the gag.

He said: "He might get bullied if his name is Divock. I had to actually come out and say his name isn't actually Divock Samrat - that was a gag.

"To me Divrock was a lovely name. Abs said to me, 'You've got to tweet it, it's brilliant.'"

He later returned to twitter to assure his fans the name was just banter.

"Our boy is beautiful the name is still to be clarified unfortunately Abs not going for Divock Samrat," he clarified.

Although he joked they're "still weighing up Karl" as a name.

The couple also share Sophia, eight, Liberty, four, and Johnny, one.
