Abbey Clancy and her husband Peter Crouch revealed how they found themselves in hot water with one of their children during a new episode of their Therapy Crouch podcast.
The former footballer, 42, joked that he ‘couldn’t believe’ what had happened.
Speaking on the podcast, Peter said: We went to the park we had a lovely day. It was nice and sunny and obviously I’ve got the dog so I’m away from the ice cream van, because he’ll obviously just nick a kids ice cream or something.
‘So I’m keeping Jeffrey away and I just shouted over “I’ll have a 99” and Ab said, like quite quietly away from the queue, “Sure you don’t want a 69?”
After bursting into a fit of giggles, Peter continued: ‘Obviously great gag between us, loved it, all good. Sophia then turns around – she’s 12 – “That’s disgusting!”
Caught out: Peter Crouch and his wife Abbey Clancy were mortified when their daughter overheard them joking about sex during a new episode of their Therapy Crouch podcast
Hilarious: After Peter admitted to not realising his eldest would know about the gaffe, model Abbey, 37, jokingly said she’d been called ‘vile and disgusting’
The 6ft 7inch athlete told how he was in complete disbelief that she knew what the in joke meant.
He added: ‘Pardon? I said, “You’re a child. It’s a gag between me and your mother.” I couldn’t believe it. I went “Oh my God”’.
Laughing, Abbey, 37, then added: ‘She said, “I know what that is mum. You are vile”. She went, “You’re disgusting.” She’s like, “I know what that means.”
The quick-thinking mum of four then tried to cover up her blip and said: ‘I was like, “I’m just talking about a different style of ice cream. What are you talking about? It’s two flakes. It’s two flakes instead of one.”’
Abbey and Peter share daughters Sophia, 12, and Liberty, seven, and sons Johnny, four, and Jack, three.
The couple, who have been together since 2006, married in a lavish ceremony at Stapleford Park in Leicestershire in June 2011.
They later renewed their vows on on a private island at the Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort last summer to celebrate 11 years of marriage.
‘We started as a young couple together, and now here we are with our four kids walking us down the aisle. I feel like the luckiest person on earth,’ Abbey told Hello! magazine.

‘We were going to renew our vows on our ten-year anniversary, but with lockdown, we couldn’t do it.
‘Pete’s quite romantic at heart; he has definitely earned himself brownie points for the next few years.’
Peter gushed: ‘Abbey looked incredible, and even after 11 years, I still got butterflies when she walked down the aisle, it was a stunning island, but Ab stole the show – I’m a lucky man.’
