Goal for Rooney as Coleen announces she is pregnant
THRILLED Coleen Rooney used Twitter last night to tell the world that she and soccer star hubby Wayne are expecting their second child.
She said she was “bursting with excitement” and revealed she became pregnant only last month — at about the same time that the Manchester United striker was laid up at home with a nasty football injury.
Coleen, 26, told 840,000 Twitter followers of her joy at a brother or sister for son Kai, who will be three next month.
She wrote: “A few people guessed, so news is out ha!!
“Me Wayne and Kai are thrilled that we are expecting a new addition to our family around May time.”
She added: “Its still only early but bursting with excitement! Also wanted the news to come from us before anyone else!”
The mum-to-be has received hundreds of congratulation tweets from fans.
She later replied: “Thank you all so much for all your lovely messages!!”
Wayne, also 26, posted: “Thnx mate” to pals on Twitter for goodwill messages. Former England team-mate Michael Owen tweeted: “Didn’t think you had it in you to fill another pram.”
Rooney, who wed childhood sweetheart Coleen in 2008, suffered a three-inch gash playing against Fulham at the end of August. He only returned against Newcastle last week.
Last month he said becoming a dad forced him to clean up his act after he was banned for swearing into a TV camera. uk
