He said: ‘Well, she’s highly critical, so she’ll pick holes in whatever I do.

‘But she’ll 100 per cent be coming down to the studio at Wembley, especially if there’s a bar as well!’ 

Asked if the couple were planning to have any more kids, he said: ‘God no! Don’t ever have four.

‘It was a ridiculous decision – one that I love and wouldn’t change for the world – but it’s tough.’

It comes after last month Abbey opened up about her past marital struggles with husband Peter and revealed that at one point ‘he hated me and I hated him’. 

The model, 35, who wed the sports star a decade ago, went on to admit that she ‘doesn’t know how’ she got pregnant with their youngest child Jack, now 22 months. 

Discussing her last pregnancy, she described the youngster as a ‘gift from God’ as he was conceived while she ‘hated’ her husband.

Speaking on Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe’s Lockdown Parenting Hell podcast, Abbey recalled that at the time, she was ‘finished with three’ children – having already welcomed Sophia, 10, Liberty, five and Jonny, three – before unexpectedly discovering she was pregnant with her fourth child. 

She recalled calling Peter to tell him the baby news, only for him to tell her ‘if you’re going to say what I think you’re going to say, don’t say it.’

Abbey told how she was ‘scared’ about having another child, before Peter eventually came home and said that it was going to be ‘OK’ after he’d had ‘time to think’.

The beauty went on to discuss the growing tension between the pair, adding: ‘We hated each other at that point as well so I don’t even know how I got pregnant to be quite honest.’

She went on: ‘The pregnancy with our three-year-old Johnny was hell, I hated him and he hated me. So I don’t know how it happened.’ 

Abbey went on to say how the couple call Jack a ‘gift from God’ as he was conceived during a time of much strain in their marriage, adding that the tot is ‘wonderful’ and had ‘fitted in’ well with the family. 

During the podcast, the model revealed a time she went mad at her husband Peter Crouch after he lost their son during a family outing at the farm.   

The model recalled the terrifying moment their youngest son Jack went missing and how her husband had a ‘laid-back response’. 

She said: ‘It was so scary. I battered Pete in front of every one at the farm. I threw a cup of coffee on him. I threw the coffee and I punched him. I don’t condone violence at all but it was out of panic. I was terrified.’

Abbey, who has been married to the football ace since 2011, shares Sophia, 10, Liberty, five, Jonny, three, and Jack, one with Peter. 

In her appearance on the podcast she regaled the tale of their dramatic argument and even revealed she threw a cup of coffee at the relaxed star. 

She said: ‘I went to the toilet. I was gone for one second. And I came back he was just sitting there. I said: ‘where’s the baby?’

‘We couldn’t find the baby anywhere. I was hysterical. He had escaped out of the indoor play area and was a mile down the road with lambs and a lake and everything. It was so scary. I battered Pete in front of every one at the farm.’ 

‘I threw a cup of coffee on him. I threw the coffee and I punched him. I don’t condone violence at all but it was out of panic. I was terrified…

‘It was a nightmare I am just so worried about anything happening to them and he is far too laid back, so laid back it is a joke.

‘And he forgot the baby bag. That’s his favourite thing to do. We drove to another country farm. I should have married a farmer!…

‘It was two hours away – with a new born baby and a 12 month old, and he forgot the baby bag, so no milk, no nappies. I wanted to kill him.’
