Pregnant Abbey Clancy Talks About Second Baby With Peter Crouch

Red/Hugo McKinley

Abbey Clancy has spoken about her second pregnancy in a new interview alongside her mum, Karen.

Speaking to Red magazine, Abbey, 29, who is expecting her second baby with husband Peter Crouch, discussed her pregnancy, and how much her experience of motherhood has differed to Karen's.

Abbey told the magazine that although there are some tough aspects of being a mum, her experience is easier than Karen had with her four children.

"I don't have to worry about the obvious things like money," said Abbey. "We don't have any help or anything. It's just up to me and Pete to do everything. So when you're tired and you're up through the night, you're thinking, 'How am I going to do this?' It's so hard.

"I don't think anyone understands when you have a baby how hard it is. I don't work every day, and Pete's home at 3pm [from training]. My mum had four kids on her own, so if I had one kid with one nanny and not a full-time job, it would be a joke."

Cementing her role as wise grandmother, Karen, 53, also had some words of wisdom for Peter, saying:
"My children are all grown now, so I'm starting to relax. Now I'm watching Abbey do what I've done. I brought my four up on my own, so when I hear Pete say he's exhausted, I'm like, "You've only got one. I've had four on my own! And went to work!""

Abbey announced her second pregnancy on Twitter just before Christmas. She tweeted her delight with the message: "Super excited to announce Pete and I are expecting our second baby! We couldn't be happier."

The model and footballer are already proud parents to daughter Sophia, three, and married in June 2011.

This is Abbey and Karen's second photo shoot together. In November last year the pair teamed up for an Avon beauty campaign - and fans were quick to notice the striking similarities between mother and daughter.

The full interview appears in the March issue of Red, on sale 29th January. Also available in digital edition on Apple Newsstand.
