One big happy family: Peter Crouch, his wife Abbey and their daughter, Sophia Ruby, enjoy a day out while on holiday in Capri, Italy
Most people may sit at home twiddling their thumbs when waiting on a decision that shapes their future career, but not footballer Peter Crouch.
The lanky striker fled to the Italian island of Capri with his wife Abbey Clancy and their five-month-old daughter, Sophia Ruby, ahead of his move to Stoke City.
The couple, who married in June this year, were seen holidaying in the popular resort spending quality time as a family.

Clancy, 25, wore a skimpy blue and white checked bikini with dark sunglasses as she relaxed by the side of the pool and watched 30-year-old Crouch take a splash with Sophia Ruby in the swimming pool.
The family were also photographed making the most of the Italian culture and mingling with the locals as they strolled through the town.
Crouch, who previously played for Tottenham Hotspur, was seen pushing his daughter's buggy as his child, who wore a pink headband, took in the Italian atmosphere in her mother's arms.

Clancy chose to cover up for their day out and wore a low-cut linen dress and gold sandals over a bikini.
The happy family were later pictured taking a break from their walk at a nearby lake, where Hells Kitchen contestant, Clancy, had decided to show off her slender figure again, this time in khaki green halterneck bikini top.

The lingerie and catwalk model didn't strip completely though as she folded her dress down to her waist and put her dark sunglasses on, whilst her husband chose to keep his long sleeved top on in the hot weather.
It was announced that the 6ft 7in football player was moving to Stoke City on August 31.

The Premier League club announced that they had bought the striker for a record fee of £10million which could rise to £12million on a four-year contract.
After the move was finalised, Crouch revealed that his former Tottenham Hotspur colleague, Jonathan Woodgate, was a major influence upon his decision to join Stoke City.
