The Beckhams have welcomed a new addition to their family - a duck called Crouchie.
The bird, named after lanky Spurs star Peter Crouch because he has a long neck and thin legs, now rules the roost at Beckingham Palace.
Pals say England midfielder David, 35, brought the duck home for kids Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight, and Cruz, five.
He has joined the petting zoo at David and wife Victoria's huge pad in Sawbridgeworth, Herts, and is even allowed to roam around the house.
Among the Beckhams' other pets is British Bulldog Coco, which lives at the family's other home in Los Angeles. It was the children's idea to name the bird after 6ft 7in striker Crouchie.
A source said: "The duck has a really long neck, like Peter Crouch, and very skinny legs in proportion to his body.
"As soon as it waddled into their home they knew it was 'Crouchie'."
