Abbey and Peter Crouch’s daughter rushed to hospital

Abbey Clancy and family enjoy holiday in Maldives

Peter Crouch and his wife Abbey Clancy have revealed they rushed their daughter to hospital in a “terrifying” emergency dash.

Abbey, 37, shared her fears after the couple’s daughter Sophia, 12, contracted viral meningitis during the family’s Easter holiday to Portugal.

It can cause inflammation in the layers of tissue that cover the brain and spinal cord.

Although rarely life-threatening, for some sufferers the after-effects can be life-changing – and the virus must be treated immediately.

Sophia was rushed to the hospital leaving the couple scared about their child’s health.

The pair became more concerned when their youngest son Jack, three, started coughing.

The mum-of-four had to return to the hospital with their toddler amid fears he had contracted meningitis.

Speaking on The Therapy Crouch podcast: “The school holidays have been tough.

“We got to Portugal and Sophia was in hospital with meningitis which was just the scariest thing on earth.

“Being in a foreign hospital, language barriers, the words like meningitis being thrown around, lumbar punctures, brain scans.

“It was horrific – I felt so vulnerable – and scary. But I must say the medical care over there were just out of this world.”

“These things always happen on a Sunday at one o’clock in the morning, just to add to that fear and that scariness of the situation. It can never be a normal hour,” she joked of the hospital dash.

“With Sophia I just knew something was wrong, like it wasn’t like a normal bug. I was going to Pete ‘say meningitis’, and it was. I actually couldn’t believe it.”

Abbey was admittedly on “high alert” and said she could’t sleep following the horror ordeal.

She remarked: “I was watching every child like a hawk. It was just terrifying.”

Abbey confirmed three of her children all came down “with flu and coughs”.

“Sophia was out the hospital and we were back in the hospital with them because I was thinking ‘I’ve got three other children, can they catch this viral meningitis?’ It was traumatic,” ahe added.

“I think we had four hours sleep in like 30 hours… I’ve never been so scared in my life.”

Peter, 42, shared: “That was just because we were so worried about Sophia, when he started coughing we felt like we had to take him.”

The parents took turns with looking after their four children with the ex-footballer taking the night shift, adding he felt they were on separate holidays.

Abbey concluded of the holiday: “We got home from Portugal all exhausted. Then get into bed, everyone’s asleep and then Liberty comes in and goes ‘Mum, dad, I feel like I’ve got the vomiting bug’.”

The Victoria Secret’s model and her beau renewed their wedding vows on December 17 with their four children to witness the occasion – Sophia, 12, Liberty, seven, Johnny, five, and three-year-old Jack.
