Manchester United star Wayne Rooney’s wife Coleen Rooney is three months pregnant, according to British tabloid Sunday Mirror. Both Wayne and Coleen are said to be ‘extremely thrilled’ and eagerly looking forward to the arrival of their first child.
“Coleen and Wayne couldn’t be happier.
“Their families are the biggest thing in their lives and Wayne has always said he wants at least three or four children. Coleen has always maintained she wants a family when the time is right.”
The rumors have been going on for a while after Coleen was seen in the Caribbean in January with a slight bump, but it was only confirmed yesterday. Earlier last week, she was spotted wearing a loose tracksuit in a mall with her mother who was pulling the shopping cart.
Wayne celebrated the good news by scoring two fabulous goals against Slovakia on Saturday.
Speculations are rife about whether it’s going to be a girl or a boy. Bookies have already started placing bets on the name that the couple would be choosing for their child. William Hill is offering 4/1 for ‘Alex’, after Wayne’s boss at the club. ‘Olivia’ is said to be the favourite name, if it’s a girl.
“They don’t know whether it is a boy or a girl; they don’t mind either way.”
The baby is due in September and Coleen is getting a nursery installed in the couple’s £3.5 million Cheshire mansion. The child will be born with a silver spoon in it’s mouth. The status that Wayne enjoys as a celebrated soccer player, is tremendous. It is said that the bids for getting the rights for the first pictures of the baby will be as high as £1 million.
