Abbey Clancy caused confusion over the weekend when she uploaded a photo of a newborn baby on Twitter, leaving fans to assume that the British model had given birth. It soon became apparent that the new tot wasn't hers, with Abbey forced to set the record straight in a follow-up tweet.

The pregnant star, who is due to give birth in May, showed off her brother Sean's baby online to her 360,000 followers, and captioned the snap: "New member to the Clancy family baby Caleb."

Abbey, who accompanied the picture of her adorable nephew with a string of baby emoticons, was immediately inundated with congratulatory messages.

One fan wrote, "He is beautiful, many congratulations to you and Peter and of course big sister :-) x," while another follower commented, "God bless him. Congratulations."

"Thought Abbey wasn't due yet?!" another fan pointed out.

Abbey, who has one daughter Sophia with her husband Peter Crouch, quickly noted the misunderstanding and sent out another tweet. "Ha sorry for any confusion it's my bother @seanclancy7 and @StephanieDoyle2 baby!!! Wish he was mine #soinlove," she wrote.

The Liverpudlian beauty is clearly besotted with her baby nephew, and shared more snaps of the little bundle of joy. "Princess Sophia feeding her beautiful baby cousin Caleb," she captioned a photo of her four-year-old bonding with the newborn.

Abbey followed it up with another shot of the baby boy, sleeping peacefully in another relative's arms.

Abbey, 29, and her husband Peter, 34, are preparing to welcome their own child in a couple of months. The heavily pregnant star and her Stoke City football player beau married in June 2011, after dating for five years.

Peter Crouch and Abbey Clancy are said to be expecting their second baby in May

Last month Abbey showed off her burgeoning baby bump with a very clear photo on Instagram. The TV presenter simply captioned the snap with a surprised face emoji, possibly expressing her shock at how soon her baby is due or at the size of her prominent bump.

Much like with Abbey's first pregnancy, she and Peter are leaving the gender of their baby a surprise. "I'm so pleased at the news," the striker 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."
