Fans were quick to gush over the tender uncle and nephew moment, telling Abbey they found it lovely she had named her son after her beloved brother.

One wrote: “Aww lovely namesake.”

Another said: “So cute he shares his name with his uncle.”

A third added: “Aww uncle love.”

Abbey and Peter announced the arrival of their third child on Friday, bucking the celeb trend of waiting for a big money mag deal to share the news themselves on Instagram.

Abbey gushed: “Our beautiful baby boy Johnny Crouch. Born 3/1/18. Happy, health and gorgeous. So in love.”

She and Peter are already parents to daughters Sophia, six, and Liberty, two.

And it seems like the little girls are just as besotted with the new arrival as Abbey and Peter!

Abbey shared another beautiful picture over the weekend showing Sophia holding her little brother tight.

She simply captioned it: “Blessed.”

Abbey, 31, and Peter, 36, revealed in June last year that a third baby was on the way, after Abbey was seen sporting a teeny tiny, barely-there baby bump on holiday.

Her pregnancy came just a few months after she admitted to being broody during an interview – and hinted that Peter was hoping for a son.

The star joked Peter was already outnumbered in their household and a guinea pig for the girls’ fashion and beauty experiments.

She told Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine: “I’m one of four children myself and we’re all like a big gang everywhere we go and I love that, so it’s natural to want to replicate that big sense of family.

“Every time we go out, everyone’s together and I just love it, I feel like you just don’t need anyone else.”

She joked Peter, being a dad to two girls, was now used to “being given green eye shadow and having his nails painted pink and his hair put in bobbles by Sophia”.

She said: ‘That’s when I think he feels it would be nice to have a little boy just to watch football with. But he wanted girls; he loves girls and he loves the whole daddy’s girl thing.”
