Peter Crouch has discussed the impending arrival of his second baby with wife Abbey Clancy and revealed that he hopes it's a boy. The Stoke football star also said that they won't find out the sex of their baby before its birth in May.
"We've already got three-year-old Sophia, and we wanted to have a little brother or sister for her. And I'm so pleased at the news," he wrote in his Loaded magazine column.
"We're not going to find out the sex of the baby – with Sophia we left it a surprise. Either would be brilliant. But, I will say, I've got a lot of girls in my house, so it would be great to have a little lad to take to football."

Peter Crouch said he hopes his second baby with Abbey Clancy is a boy
The excited dad continued: "The baby's due in May when the season's over and I'm on holiday – and I don't know whether that'll be a good or a bad thing.
"If it's a boy, he'd have to end up supporting Stoke."
Meanwhile Pete's model wife has previously discussed how she is finding her second pregnancy, and says that while she is thrilled to be expecting again, her pregnancy has been taking its toll on her body.
"One part of your brain is going, 'Oh my God, I'm so blessed, it's a miracle'," she told The Times. "And the other half is going, 'I can't bear this, I'm so fat, I'm ugly, I've got spots, I feel sick."
Abbey, who is expecting her second baby in May, also said that she has been suffering with severe morning sickness. The 29-year-old claims that eating carbohydrates including croissants, bagels and muffins, helps to ease her nausea.
"That's what's happening in this pregnancy," she said. "Every two minutes, I have to have a feast!"
Abbey announced that she was expecting her second child with Peter on Twitter in December.
"Super excited to announce Pete and I are expecting our second baby! We couldn't be happier" she wrote.
