Abbey Clancy gives birth

Abbey Clancy has given birth to a baby girl.

The 25-year-old model and her soccer star fiance Peter Crouch became parents for the first time last night and are thrilled with their new arrival.

A source said: "Mother and daughter are doing brilliantly.

"Abbey and Peter are over the moon. They haven't picked a name yet, but they are completely in love with her."

The baby weighed in at 7lbs 9oz.

Peter, 30, is said to be looking forward to celebrating his daughter's birth with his Tottenham Hotspur teammates.

One pal said: "The Spurs boys have been texting him congratulations - and promising to help him wet the baby's head."

Abbey - who has been in a relationship with Peter for five years and got engaged almost two years ago - is likely to be surprised by the gender of the infant as she previously admitted she thought she was carrying a boy.

She said soon after confirming her pregnancy: "I think it's a boy from looking at the scans... it's too boisterous to be a girl."

The couple are thought to be planning to marry this summer.
