Congratulations! Coleen and Wayne share their BIG news

Splashing around in the Caribbean Sea mere days ago in a tiny bikini, few bystanders would have guessed her VERY exciting news.

But this evening, Coleen Rooney took to Twitter to reveal that she and her husband are expecting their third child.

The 29-year-old said in the same post that she is due in January.

The duo married in an incredibly lavish ceremony in Italy seven years ago and are already parents to two sons: Kai, five-and-a-half, and Klay, two. 

Manchester United forward Wayne, 29, at the same time sent a similar message from his own Twitter account, saying: "Delighted that me and @ColeenRoo have our 3rd child on the way."

Speaking to Now! magazine earlier this year, Ms Rooney hinted that she was thinking of more children – and that after two sons, she'd love a daughter.

“I would love another baby! I don’t mind whether it’s a girl or a boy but I do think a little girl would complete our family.

“Wayne would love to have a girl because he grew up with brothers.”

And after weathering several relationship storms during their years together – including his infidelity – the teenage sweethearts ensure that they get some alone time too.

"Now that we have two kids, we make sure that we have time together," Coleen recently told Mail Online. "We make sure that one night a week we go out for dinner or go to the cinema."

Following a two week break in Barbados, one of the Rooneys' favourite holiday locations, the family returned to their home in the UK yesterday.

 

Looking forward to getting away with @coleen_rooney this week
