Steven Gerrard's wife Alex tweeted a photo of her husband dressed up as Father Christmas in the kitchen of their 3million-pound mansion on Sunday.
She wrote: "Ho, ho, ho. Steven in Santa suit rehearsing for tomorrow night."
The former nail technician, 30, has been enjoying spending time with husband Steven, 32, and their three daughters Lilly-Ella, eight; Lexie, six; and Lourdes, one; in the run up to Christmas, the Daily Mail reported.
This year, Steven will be able to spend the whole of Christmas Day with the family, instead of leaving early to go to training for the Boxing Day match.
Alex wrote in her OK! magazine column last week: "This Christmas Day, Steven's off from training for the first time since he was a kid.
"He usually trains in the morning, then goes away Christmas night for the Boxing Day match but this year they've let them have Christmas Day off." (ANI)
