Abbey Clancy Swaps Sports for Svelte in UK Cosmo (photos!) 1UK model Abigail Clancy is back in shape after giving birth earlier this year, and graces the UK edition of Cosmopolitan magazine in a stunning photo shoot that shows off her toned body.

Clancy, 25, started dating soccer star Peter Crouch in 2006, and they have been a constant subject of gossip in UK tabloids. They got engaged in 2009 and married this June after the birth of their daughter Sophia Ruby in March.

But not before a widely publicized cheating scandal. The striker stepped out on Clancy but they reconciled.

The 5’9″ beauty rose to public attention during the second season of Britain’s “Next Top Model” television show. She lost in the final to Lianna Fowler, but has never looked back.

She gained some visibility in the United States when she was featured in the 2010 edition of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue. She wore only body paint of Crouch’s English team jersey.

She also appeared on the Aug. 2011 cover of UK Esquire. “Girls who go out with footballers are branded in a certain way,” she told the magazine. “People can say what they want. Now I’ve got my baby, things don’t matter as much to me. I’m not as wimpy as I was.”

Clancy has mostly been associated with sports-related fashion, but her spread in Cosmopolitan is anything but. Check out her photos.
