A British woman had to work extra hard to convince her husband they'd won the lottery after she had pranked him about a win weeks earlier.

"I didn't believe her at all because we like to wind each other up," Daniel Peart, 27, said of the moment his wife, 28-year-old Charlotte Peart, called to tell him they'd won 1 million pounds (roughly $1.3 million), Sky News reported.

"He didn't believe me," Charlotte added. "Actually, he said, 'I can't talk to you right now love,' and ended up putting his brother on the phone."

Just a few weeks earlier, Charlotte had tricked her husband into thinking they'd won 250,000 pounds (about $320,000). So when she called, he was convinced she was trying to fool him again. 

But Daniel became a believer when Charlotte sent him a screengrab of the winning message.

Now, the couple and their three children are searching for a new home in the Peterborough area in England, where they live currently. 

"With a family of five it gets a little cramped, a little tight," Daniel said. "All the kids have earned their own bedrooms, they're all excited about that and we're looking forward to the next adventure in our lives."
