Footballer Wayne Rooney and his wife Coleen are "thrilled" to be expecting their second child, she announced Wednesday night.

The TV presenter revealed the news on Twitter, telling her 840,000 followers that the baby is due in May.

The couple already have a son, Kai, who was born in November 2009.

Coleen tweeted:

Its still only early but bursting with excitement! Also wanted the news to come from us, before anyone else! 😃

Manchester United and England striker Rooney has previously spoken about how fatherhood gave him a bigger kick than his football career, describing becoming a dad as the "proudest moment of my life".

He and Coleen were childhood sweethearts and got married in a lavish ceremony in June 2008 when they were both aged 22.

But their relationship has not been without his problems.

Two years ago they were rocked by claims that Rooney had paid a prostitute £1,200 a time for sex while she was pregnant with Kai.

And in 2004 Rooney responded to tabloid claims that he had been to a brothel in his home city of Liverpool by admitting he had visited massage parlours and had sex with prostitutes.
