The gangly footballer is famous for his sense of humour, and has never been shy to make a joke at his own expense.
However, it's easier to have a bit of a joke at the expense of a tiny wee child if you can, isn't it?
The 6ft 7in Burnley striker also added a middle name, in reference to a joke that he had made previously.
He said that he and his wife, model Abbey Clancy, were planning to name their fourth child after their favourite curry house, Samrat.

Announcing their good news, Crouchy said: "Our beautiful baby boy was born Monday June 3rd mother and baby Divock Samrat Crouch are doing well."
Crouch, a former Liverpool player, will - of course - have been ecstatic after Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0 to win the famous big-eared trophy on Saturday.
Divock Origi scored two goals in their famous semi-final comeback win against Barcelona, and then continued that form with a crucial second goal this weekend to ensure that the Big Cup returned to Merseyside for a sixth time.
Needless to say, they're not actually going to call their kid Divock Samrat. Crouch confirmed that it was all a wind-up after the fact, tweeting: "Our boy is beautiful the name is still to be clarified unfortunately. Not going for Divock Samrat."
The whole joke started on his now infamous podcast on the BBC, entitled That Peter Crouch Podcast. On an episode in March he revealed: "One of the bookies is taking bets on names for my little one. Harry is top.
"And at 100/1 was Samrat and I've had a good few people saying 'You've got to do it' - Samrat Crouch.
"It's genuinely 100/1...it does work, because you'd just call him Sam. Shane is actually bigger odds than Samrat."
Sounds like a decent swindle, to be fair. However, he was then asked if that sort of caper would fly with Abbey, to which he replied: "She'd be alright with it, yeah."
No excuses then, Pete.
This isn't the first time that Crouchy has hit the headlines for having a laugh. He was once famously asked what he would be if he wasn't a professional footballer.
Without skipping a beat, he responded: "A virgin."
Well, given that he has four children now, it has turned out OK for Crouchy.
