Wayne and Coleen Rooney shared heartfelt messages to their son Kai, who turned seven on Wednesday. The doting parents took to their respective Instagram accounts to share a series of sweet images of their little boy growing up.
"Happy 7th Birthday to our Kai!! Have the best day, love you loads," his mother proudly wrote in the caption, while the football star shared a picture of the birthday boy posing next to his cake, and said: "Happy 7th Birthday to our big boy Kai!"
Fans of the couple were quick to respond to their tributes, with one commenting: "What a gorgeous boy he's turning into, Happy Birthday Kai."

"Image of his Legend of a daddy," one fan noted, while another added: "Wow 7 That's gone fast have a good day [mate]."
Meanwhile, the England captain's eldest son appears to be taking after his dad as he is showing more interest in becoming a professional footballer.
"It's up to him if he does it - I wouldn't be too bothered either way," the father-of-three recently told MailOnline. "If he does, that's up to him. Certainly every day he's obsessed by football, and every day he asked if I think he's good enough, so I'm sure he'll have a go and see if he can."

Wayne and his wife Coleen - who have been together since they were 16, and married in 2008 - are proud parents to Kai, their three-year-old son Klay and Kit, who was born in January.
The pair often take to their social media sites to share lovely images of their family, giving fans an insight into their personal lives.
Last week, the 31-year-old footballer - who recently celebrated his own birthday - uploaded one of the most adorable pictures of his three little boys.
"Best mates," the image was simply captioned alongside a heart-shaped emoticon. The snap shows nine-month-old Kit stare at Kai who was looking at three-year-old Klay, all wrapped up in towels after bath time.
Best mates ❤️
