Baby joy for Abbey Clancy

Model Abbey Clancy has become mum to her second child - a girl called Liberty.

The former Strictly Come Dancing champion, 29, already has a four-year-old daughter, Sophia, with footballer husband Peter Crouch.

She joked about how Crouch would cope with three females in the family.

"My Liberty Rose Crouch born last night 6lb 8oz, perfect little princess," she wrote on Twitter, accompanied by a picture of herself looking fresh-faced and cuddling her baby.

"God help my Peter Crouch surrounded by girls."

Former England player Crouch added: "So pleased to welcome Liberty Rose to our family. Mummy and baby doing great."

Newlywed actress Michelle Keegan and former Strictly contestant Ben Cohen offered their congratulations.

Clancy won BBC One show Strictly with Aljaz Skorjanec in 2013.

She later dismissed speculation about her chemistry with Skorjanec, saying: "I know what went on and he knows what went on, so it's not like that, you're just learning to dance."

She has described Crouch, who she married in 2011, as the perfect father - but admitted that he does not always get it right.

"For my engagement he got the date of our engagement engraved into the ring. I was like, 'What's that?' and he was like, 'when we got engaged'. But it wasn't," she said. "He tries!"

Clancy recently showed off naked snaps of herself with her bump, inspired by Hollywood star Demi Moore's famous Vanity Fair cover shoot.
