Time was when pregnant women were expected to put their feet up and start knitting little booties.

Coleen Rooney showed how times have changed by enjoying an adventurous afternoon of jet-skiing during a break in Saint Tropez with her husband England footballer Wayne.

At first the TV personality looked a little uncertain as she climbed behind an instructor for a lesson, wearing a life jacket.

A later while later, the nerves had clearly vanished, and 23-year-old Coleen, who's six months along, appeared to handle the powerful machine quite confidently.

It hasn't been all action, though, for the couple, who recently marked their first wedding anniversary, having become man and wife in a lavish ceremony at an Italian monastery in June last year.

The Rooneys have been indulging in plenty of R and R spending lazy days topping up their tans on a yacht.

Sunkissed and with her midriff on display, Coleen looked like she's sailing through pregnancy and enjoying the quality time with her partner during the break in the football season.

She has impressed commentators by her intention to try for a natural birth rather than having a caesarean – even though Wayne may be tied up with an England World Cup qualifier on October 10, which is around her due date.
