Former Liverpool and Tottenham star, Peter Crouch, has welcomed the birth of his fourth child with wife, Abbey Clancy.

Crouch took to Twitter to confirm the news before joking he had named the baby boy after Divock Origi.

The 38-year-old posted a photo of the newborn and wrote: “Our beautiful baby boy was born Monday 3rd June mother and baby Divock Samrat Crouch are doing well.”

Crouch swiftly followed up the tweet with another disclosing they were yet to decide a name for the baby.

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

The naming would be in tribute to Origi’s spectacular campaign with the Reds in the second half of the just concluded season.

The star forward netted a stunning brace against Barcelona in the Champions League semis to help Liverpool book a place in the finals.

He was also on target against Tottenham as the Anfield outfit won 2-0 to lift the European title on Saturday, June 1, in Madrid.

Meanwhile, earlier reported that Liverpool have lined up a new contract for the Belgian international after his Champions League heroics.

Origi has a year left on his current deal with the Jurgen Klopp-tutored side but club chiefs are keen to have the 24-year-old commit his future with the Reds.
