It has been an incredibly difficult start to the year for Coleen Rooney, who tragically lost her little sister in January. Understandably, the pregnant star has decided to escape for a warm winter break in Barbados.
The 25-year-old has flown out to holiday island with her son Kai to soak up some sunshine and spend time relaxing before the arrival of her second baby.

Coleen, who is due in May, showed off her beautiful blossoming figure as she hit the beach with her little man on Tuesday.
She looked radiant and healthy in a patterned bikini, her long brunette hair pulled back to help keep her cool.
Certainly Kai kept her on her toes. The three-year-old was having a whale of a time as he played around on the beach and in the sea.
To protect him from the sun, he wore long swimwear and a cap, and as he ventured into the sea, he looked in the mood for adventure with a plastic shark fin on his back.
Being pregnant and with an energetic toddler to run around might not make for a relaxing holiday. But luckily Coleen had help at hand in the form of her mum and dad, Colette and Tony, who took turns looking after their grandson.
The sunshine break will have come as a very welcome distraction for the McLoughlin family, following the tragic death of little Rosie, who lost her battle with Rett Syndrome on January 5.
Coleen recently took to Twitter to pay tribute to her sister on what would have been her 15th birthday.
Noticeably absent from the Barbados holiday was Coleen's husband Wayne, who has remained in the UK ahead of England's match against Brazil on Wednesday.
Until recently, it wasn't known when the couple's second son was expected to make his arrival.
But the expectant brunette recently revealed all to her fans following Beyonce's spectacular Super Bowl performance and subsequent tour announcement.
"Beyonce… Can't you wait til after I have had my baby please to come to England," Coleen tweeted.
"I know she's on in May, that's why I want her to wait, am due in May" she later added. "I went to see her on her last tour when I was pregnant #amazingshow."
