Wayne Rooney and his wife already have two boys, Kai and Klay, and on Wednesday night they each posted a separate tweet announcing the happy news.
“Delighted that me and @ColeenRoo have our 3rd child on the way,” wrote Wayne, while Coleen posted:
Baby number 3 is on the way ...... January!! We are so happy and excited. 😍— Coleen Rooney (@ColeenRoo) July 8, 2015
Coleen and Wayne are currently enjoying a family holiday in Barbados, and the mum-of-two (soon-to-be three!) was looking happier than ever as she hit the beach with her kids earlier this week.
Coleen and Wayne welcomed their youngest son Klay in 2013, while Kai was born in 2009.
The star recently revealed the secrets to her happy marriage, telling MailOnline: “It's just about being as strong individually as we are together and that's all that can happen in a relationship.
“Also now that we have two kids, we make sure that we have time together. We make sure that one night a week we go out for dinner or go to the cinema.”
Plenty of fans shared their best wishes for the couple, in the hours after the announcement:
@ColeenRoo ah congrats xx— mary clarke (@MaryClarke67) July 8, 2015
Naturally, among the many congratulatory messages on Twitter, there was a topical joke or two…
Wayne and Coleen having baby number 3. No child tax credits though thanks to Osborne. #budget2015— steve mccoy (@lpool39) July 8, 2015
Congratulations Coleen, Wayne, Kai and Klay!
