The couple had just emerged from the hospital with their newborn son and were waving up towards hospital staff leaning out of windows across the road.

But Peter quipped the couple had been waving up at him, tweeting: “Congratulations! It was a pleasure sharing your big day with you.”

Fans rushed to tell Peter his tweet had made their day, branding him “hilarious” and “legendary” – until his model wife Abbey Clancy stepped in with a zinger!

She simply tweeted: “Why are you never this funny at home?”


Many followers reckoned Abbey had won the Twitter exchange, with one fan replying: “Even funnier than Peter Crouch’s original post! #BeatenByYourMrs.”

Another agreed: “Tweet of the year!”

A third added: “Every man loses a bit of his intelligence in the presence of a beautiful woman, there you go!”

Peter may not be that funny at home, according to Abbey, but he certainly scored a winner with this tweet, with other fans saying he came out on top.

One fan even said: “Close Twitter down for the day because Crouchy has won at it!”

Another agreed: “You’re the best thing to happen to Twitter.”

A third said: “Crouchy for PM!!!! and a knighthood for this tweet.”
