ABBEY and Peter Crouch have still not named their newborn son but the joke moniker Divock has “stuck a bit”.
The couple welcomed their fourth child on June 3rd with the footballer announcing he was called Divock Samrat Crouch – after the Liverpool player and their favourite curry house.
But despite admitting at the time it was joke, Peter has now revealed they have in fact been using the name.
Speaking on That Peter Couch Podcast, the 38-year-old said: “He might get bullied if his name is Divock. I had to actually come out and say his name isn’t actually Divock Samrat — that was a gag.
“To me Divock was a lovely name. Abs said to me: «you’ve got to tweet it, its brilliant.» I cant think of one (celeb who has announced fake name).
“We were looking at him the other day, he’s so beautiful and innocent and Divock seemed like a good name for it. I feel like its sort of stuck a bit. Whatever we go for now is not going to live up to Divock Samrat.”

Carol Burgos is worried her neighbors think she’s bringing the neighborhood down.
She lives in a mobile home park in a woodsy part of Columbia County, N.Y, just off a two-lane highway. The homes have neat yards and American flags. On a spring Saturday, some neighbors are out holding yard sales, with knickknacks spread out on folding tables. Others are out doing yardwork.
Burgos’ lawn is unruly and overgrown.
«How bad do I feel when these little old ladies are mowing their lawn and I can’t because I’m in so much pain?» she says.
Burgos is in her early 50s, with red hair and sparkly black-rimmed glasses. She can’t mow her lawn herself because of pain and physical limits related to her osteoarthritis, degenerative disk disease and other health issues. She was deemed disabled in 1997 and lives off payments from Social Security Disability Insurance. She gets health coverage through Medicare.
She also can’t afford to pay someone to mow the lawn for her. «I don’t want another bill,» she explains. «I don’t want to be in more debt. I’m embarrassed. I don’t know, who do you ask?»

Carol Burgos is deeply frustrated she can’t even physically mow her own lawn because of pain from her osteoarthritis, degenerative disk disease and other health issues.
Burgos estimates she is $30,000 indebt. That’s a lot, especially with so little coming in. «Less than $1,500 a month,» she says. «And that doesn’t include [costs of] fuel; cooking gas; electric; water usage.»
For food, she gets a bit of money in food stamps every month. Her income works out to about $18,000 a year — not too far off from what most people living on disability benefits make.
There’s no way she could pay a $1,000 expense right away, Burgos says.According to a recent poll NPR conducted with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, 49% of rural Americans couldn’t afford a sudden expense of that size.
The percentage was much higher — 70% — for people who, like Burgos, have disabilities. More than half of those with disabilities said their families have had problems paying for medical or dental bills in the past few years.
Burgos says she doesn’t want to have to relyon disability benefits. She used to work — she’s had lots of jobs, including helping developmentally challenged people with life skills.
She identifies as a «working person with disabilities» even though she hasn’t worked for 10 years. She’s frustrated by the copays she has to pay for doctor visits and at the pharmacy — she ends up only filling her most important prescriptions, she says.
«I want to work,» she says. «Screw the money! Give me medical coverage — full medical — so I can be an able body that is willing to work.»
Burgos feels stuck in poverty and physically stuck, because it’s so hard for her to get around.
Having good access to transportation — or not — has a huge impact on the health of people living in rural parts of the country, says Dr. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo. She’s a professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of California, San Francisco, and studiesthe health of vulnerable populations.
«If you go to less populated areas — rural areas — access to a car that functions well [and], the costs for gas, becomes such an essential element,» Bibbins-Domingo says. «Both to drive to seek medical care, as well as to drive to access the other resources that are necessary to pursue good health.»
Without that transportation — or ready access to other basics like healthy food or good housing — people can get into a vicious cycle, she says.
«Poor health contributes to financial instability and to poverty,» Bibbins-Domingo says, «and poverty itself — we know — contributes to poor health.»
The federal government does providehelp to people with disabilities under two different programs. Some people, like Carol Burgos, have a work history that entitles them to payments from Social Security Disability Insurance. Others, who never worked — perhaps because of a developmental disability — are eligible for Supplemental Security Income.
«Since the Great Recession, rural counties really haven’t seen as much employment growth as urban counties,» Erickson says. «Also just the types of jobs that are available to those sorts of communities may be tending toward, you know, requiring people to be able to move things physically or whatever.
«And the limitations that the individual with disabilities may have,» Erickson continues,» may be preventing them from being able to do those particular types of jobs — or employers can’t provide the accommodations that may be necessary.»
Erickson’s colleague at ILR, Thomas Golden, adds that the complexity of disability benefits presents another problem for people who would like to work. It’s not clear to many people how much they are allowed to work without jeopardizing their benefits, he says, or what programs are available to help them in the job search.
For the past six years, Golden and Erickson have worked with young people receiving Supplemental Security Income as part of the New York State PROMISE initiative.
«In a lot of cases, those youth and their families weren’t ready to talk about work because they couldn’t pay their rent,» Golden says. «Or they were getting evicted. Or other basic needs needed to be met first before they could think about their own self-development, when it came to work and economic independence.»
Burgos says she would like to find a job she’s able to do, with enough hours to supplement her income but not trigger a loss of her social security benefits. First though, she says, she must figure out how to deal with the overgrown lawn and a student loan bill that just arrived in the mail. And she’s trying to coordinate nursing care for her elderly mom.
There are good things in her life, too, Burgos says. She has her faith — she’s born-again Christian. Her car is a bit beat up, but it works. And she has a very sweet little dog.
And even though she has to rely on a walker for long distances — and fears she eventually will end up in a wheelchair — for now, she’s still well enough to get up and down the stairs to her front door.

In a private conversation, Danny gushes: «Settling in to the villa, I feel like you’ve been such as massive part of that for me. The nerves just went because I’m getting to know you. You’re bringing a good side out of me and I just wanted to say thank you for that.”
With the news there will be two new arrivals in the villa, Yewande is fearing the worst.
In a preview clip the 23-year-old said: «Everything is starting to look like its going well and then this. You should be worried for me, I am worried for me.»
But Danny reassures her his head will not be turned. He said: «I cant see my head being turned at all.»
«Trust me, I am interested in you. All I have done is enjoy myself in here and laugh and that is largely because of you», he continued.
Yewande went on to reveal her true feelings for Danny.
She coyly replied: «Since you’ve came in, maybe there has been a spring in my step. Obviously, when I went on a date with you I felt really comfortable and I just felt there was an instant connection. I’m happy that you’re here.
To save, or not to save? That question might not be yours to answer.
A growing number of companies now direct money from their employees’ paychecks to a retirement account — even after a worker has said «no, thanks.»
Auto-enrollment into retirement plans, of course, is not new. The practice has taken off in the workplace since President George W. Bush signed the Pension Protection Act in 2006, which said employers don’t need their workers’ permission to sign them up for the company retirement plan.
The results have been powerful: More than 90% of employees participate in automatic-enrollment plans, compared with less than 60% in voluntary plans. (The most common default savings rate is 3% of a worker’s salary).
But while many employers auto-enroll their employees one time — typically when they first join the company — some are now doing so again and again, hoping to wear down those prone to ditching.
«If they opt out, why let it be a one-and-done thing?» said Nevin Adams, chief of marketing and communications at the American Retirement Association. «Why not come back and give them another shot at auto-enrollment?»
A second chance is also helpful for employees who began working at a company before auto-enrollment was deployed on newcomers, Adams said. «In many cases, they knew they hadn’t signed up for the 401(k) plan and they were embarrassed to go ask for a form,» he said.
Each year, Plan Sponsor Council of America, a trade group for employers, studies the state of 401(k) plans. In 2018, it found that nearly 8% of the plans automatically re-enrolled employees who were not participating. In 2013, just 4% had done so.
In Pew’s 2017 survey of workers, the most common obstacle to saving for retirement that respondents cited was an unwillingness to sacrifice their current quality of life.
Yet most people don’t find a paycheck reduced by 3% or 5% all that disruptive — especially when they see their nest egg growing, said John Scott, the director of retirement savings at The Pew Charitable Trusts. «They eventually won’t opt out if you keep re-enrolling them,» Scott said.
Currently, 13% of the employers that offer an auto-enrollment retirement plan through Fidelity also include a «re-solicitation» feature, in which non-participating employees are brought back into the plan at some point, according to Katie Taylor, vice president of thought leadership at Fidelity. Seven percent of such employers make that re-enrollment an annual ritual.
«The re-solicitation feature will target those eligible employees who opted out the prior year in the following year,» Taylor said, adding that plans that have adopted this practice have an average participation rate of 95%.
The trend is not taking off everywhere. Less than 2% of the companies that administer a retirement plan through Vanguard re-enroll participants who have opted out, said Alyssa Thornton, a spokeswoman for the investment manager. «We have found more success in driving participation in retirement plans through personalized email outreach,» Thornton said.
A BRIT mum was hospitalised after breathing in “chemical” fumes at a hotel resort in the Dominican Republic where four tourists have died in recent months.
Sara Taylor, 53, from Poole, Dorset, and her family were forced to move rooms at the Grand Bahia Principe resort on May 29 when they began choking on the toxic air in their suite.
The following morning, American couple Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Day, 49, were found dead in their beds at the hotel.
A total of six tourists have died at resorts on the Caribbean island in recent months – four at the Grand Bahia and its sister hotel Luxury Bahia Príncipe Bouganville which are five minutes walk from each other.
Sara and her husband Kevin, 59, believe the fumes they smelt had come into the room through the air conditioning vent.
The British mum told The Sun Online that her entire family – including her son, his partner and their nine-year-old boy — suffered health problems after spending no more than 30 minutes in the conjoining room.
She says she attended A&E shortly after returning home to the UK after suffering breathing problems.
Sara said: “We all had headaches, a couple of us had diarrhoea, my husband had heart palpatations and I had problems with my breathing.
“But I thought it was the humidity of the holiday and the change in diet.
“We arrived back in the UK on June 6 and I was still getting breathing problems and I was using my inhaler a lot more.
“When we arrived back in the UK on June 6, I rang 111 to get medical advice and they told me I should go straight to Accident and Emergency.
“When I arrived at the hospital they gave me an ECG, chest x-rays, blood tests and gave me a nebuliser to help with my breathing.
“The doctors believe the symptoms I was having were the result of me breathing in these chemicals — whatever they were — in our room.»
On the evening her family were moved suite, Sara went back to the apartment block, named Villa 25, and photographed the room doors which were sealed with “thick sellotape.”
She says that 11 of the 16 rooms were sealed and had ‘Do Not Disturb’ signs on them – yet the hotel still allowed her family to live in the building for the first week of their holiday.
Sara fears that if her family had stayed in the room, or had fallen asleep before the fumes had filled the suite, they would have died.
She is relieved her husband, who owns a company which makes air conditioners, recognised the danger and demanded they move building.
The Brit said: “If we had stayed in those rooms that night — we wouldn’t be here now.
“We feel devastated that we didn’t knock on the other doors now to see if they had the same problem as us
“Our thoughts are with all those who lost their lives and their families and friends
“I don’t want anyone to have to go through their family members going on holiday and not coming home like those poor Americans did.”
Sara, who married Kevin in the Dominican Republic in 2006, says hotel staff refused to tell them why the rooms had been sealed off.
She insisted she will demand a refund from her holiday tour operator TUI, formerly Thomsons.
‘Poisoning’ deaths at resorts in the Dominican Republic
Robert Bell Wallace, 67, died on Aprl 13 after he became sick and «urinated blood» after he had one whisky from his room minibar at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana.
American David Harrison, 45, of Maryland, died in July last year at the same Hard Rock Hotel resort after a sudden heart attack.
His heartbroken widow Dawn McCoy said her husband was mumbling inanely and complained of a «very potent, strange smell».
Miranda Schaup-Werner, 41, collapsed died in her room after having a drink from her minibar at the Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville in La Romana, 70 miles west of Punta Cana
Five days later, Edward Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Day, 49, were found dead in their room at the neighbouring Grand Bahia Principe resort.
And it has since emerged Yvette Monique Short, 51, passed away she had a drink from the minibar.
It wasn’t clear if Mr Holmes and Ms Day drank from the minibar, and their deaths were attributed by officials to respiratory failure.
Former bureau deputy assistant director Danny Coulson told FOX News: «It doesn’t make much sense.
«This thing doesn’t pass the smell test. These people didn’t have simultaneous heart attacks.
«There needs to be a major investigation.»
Authorities from both the US and the Dominican Republic are currently on the ground investigating the deaths amid fears the tourists may have been poisoned.
Coulson offered his opinion on the case, saying he believed «environmental issues» were to blame.
He explained that pesticide restrictions were «pretty liberal» in the region.
«If you’ve been to one of these hotels they spray [pesticides] all the time.»

DISTURBING video shows the moment a suspected pervert asked a boy aged five for sex while playing the hit game Fortnite.
Melissa Burns was supervising her son while he played the non-violent «creative» mode of the game.
To her horror, her son’s avatar was approached on screen by another character who asked for sex.
Concern is growing about the potential for children to be targeted while playing the 12 certificate game.
Last year a 12-year-old boy was offered money to perform «sex acts» while playing.
Melissa, from Birkenhead, Merseyside, watches her son while he plays and makes sure he’s in a mode from which all elements of violence have been removed.
After witnessing the «disgusting» approach to her son, she posted a clip of the incident to Facebook.
She wrote: «Everyone please check their child’s games always!
«Playing creative on Fortnite and this person is writing inappropriate things.
«Might be a child messaging round but could be a grown person! Please be aware!»
The video shows the character belonging to Melissa’s son walking around a house in the game.
Another player comes into view and is standing next to chalkboard.
Melissa asks her son to go back to the board to see what the other player has written on the board.
The other player wrote «please sex» and the character nods at her son’s character.
Melissa audibly gasps when she sees the outrageous proposition.
SECOND ‘SEX’ INCIDENT
She recorded another video which also shows another character writing «sex» on the board.
The video has shocked many parents online — with one even experiencing a similar incident with their own child.
Craig Dillon said: «Disgusting isn’t it, we had a fella asking how old was he, where did he live, does he want to meet etc. Little wronguns mate.»
Melissa has been praised by other parents in the comments for highlighting this issue.
Mary Jo Kerrigan-Gee said: «I know this is a serious subject and well done mum for highlighting it.»
Tom Lewis added: «I didn’t know you could write on the board in creative, opens up so many possibilities. Still, shocking.»
Melissa today explained that her son only plays with his cousins on the game.
She said: «I always play with my son when he goes on it never left unattended, he is five and plays with his cousins, my son was playing on creative mode on the game where there is no shooting or anything just running around.
«I didn’t know random players who he is not friends with could randomly join on creative mode so I was extremely shocked by this, and especially when I became aware of what was going on.
«It’s a good job I play on it with him, I know there’s some young children out there who are left to their own devices and it’s really not safe on these online games.»
Melissa added: «My reaction was horrifying, innocently playing a game with your son and someone is using it as a way to speak to children saying inappropriate things.
«Of course I recorded it and shared it to spread awareness to other parents.
«I know people say a five-year-old shouldn’t be playing games like this but I don’t see the problem if he’s supervised each time when playing, and if I hadn’t wouldn’t of (sic) never came across this.»
Melissa feels that parents need to know these incidents can occur on these games.
She said: «Thankfully my son doesn’t understand it he just has time limits on the game and I watch him on it.
«I have changed the settings within the PlayStation and game itself so no one can join in a game with you, so it shouldn’t happen again, but still other parents need to know because creative mode seems innocent when it’s just not.»
This is not the first time the 12 rated game has come under scrutiny.
The mum said that she had turned on all of Roblox’s parental controls which should have stopped her child from talking to anyone else in the game itself.
