Peter Crouch won't be getting his wish to name his new baby boy after Liverpool's Champions League hero Divock Origi.

Crouch, a former Liverpool striker, and wife Abbey welcomed the birth of their baby on Monday.

The 38-year-old Burnley player announced the news on twitter and said that 'baby Divock Samrat Crouch' was doing well.

A fan on social media joked that Crouch's son would be 'the first of many baby Divocks' after Belgian striker Origi's goal in Saturday's Champions League final.

Coming as absolutely no surprise to anybody though, it was soon confirmed that the baby had not, in fact, been named after Origi and Crouch's favourite curry house, The Samrat.

A name has yet to be decided for Crouch's fourth child - following Sophia Ruby, Liberty Rose and Johnny - after Abbey was 'unfortunately not going for' her husband's suggestion.

Origi came off the bench to net a late clincher for Liverpool in their 2-0 win over Tottenham.

It was the latest in a string of crucial goals the Belgian scored during the season, having also netted late league winners against Everton and Newcastle as well as a brace against Barcelona in the famous 4-0 Champions League semi-final victory at Anfield.

Crouch played for the Reds between 2005 and 2008, coming on as a substitute in the 2007 Champions League final as Liverpool were beaten by AC Milan.
