Pitter Patter: Coleen and Wayne Rooney Become Parents
Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney and his wife Coleen are the new parents of a healthy little baby boy named Kai Wayne Rooney at 13.45 this afternoon. We’ve not checked the exact dates, but we’re quite sure Coleen was pregnant for several years.
Not possible? Really? Well, maybe it seems that long because of how highly anticipated this little bubba was – from baby pools to non-stop media coverage – we’ve been ready to see baby Roo from the second we heard the news. Seriously, doesn’t this photo seem at least three entire fashion seasons old? Yet it was taken in July. Curious.
Anyhoo, let’s not get hung up on those details – here’s the preliminaries with more to follow soon:
Baby Kai was born at Liverpool Women’s Hospital mere minutes ago and mother and baby are doing fine. As we reported earlier, Coleen checked into the hospital last night and Wayne was absent from a training session this morning.
For those that need to know, Coleen walked into the hospital herself and had a fetching black bag over her shoulder. Sadly, we have yet to confirm the designer name.
A huge congratulations to the new family. We love it when two become three, don’t you?
Update: In Welsh/Scottish, Kai means “keeper of the keys”. Their spokesperson has officially noted the baby’s time of birth to be 14.20 today. Apparently Wazza stayed by Coleen’s side throughout and everyone is – understandably – over the moon.
