@WayneRooney Kit, like Knightrider. I kind of respect that. But only if the next one's called Streethawk.

Coleen had previously said that she had found pregnancy to be a different experience the third time around. "I've been more energised, but I don't know whether it's because I have two others to crack on with," she told new! magazine.
The couple had chosen not to find out the sex of the child ahead of the birth - with many guessing it would be a girl.
“The first time with Kai, we didn’t find out,” she said. “We did ask the second time with Klay but, with this one, when it came to the crunch at the scan, I had thought I’d want to know – but it turns out I didn’t."
