Rebekah Vardy appears to be following in Kim Kardashian and Coleen Rooney's footsteps when it comes to her post-pregnancy health routine. The 34-year-old - who is married to Leicester City striker Jamie - has revealed she is planning to take placenta capsules in order to help her recover after giving birth.

"I'm having my placenta turned into pills! It sounds gross but there are so many benefits and they help heal everything quicker, especially after a C-section," she told The Sun. "I told Jamie I'd cook him some of my placenta but he wasn't impressed!"

Rebekah Vardy has revealed she is planning to take placenta capsules after giving birth

The WAG - who has six-year-old son Taylor, and daughter Megan, 11, from a previous relationship and daughter Sofia with Jamie - went on to reveal she's not yet sure how her fourth child will be delivered. "I still don't know if I'll need a C-section yet," she explained. "If my baby stays breech then I'll have to - a nightmare for recovering with no nanny, four kids and Jamie at training."

Rebekah's plan to eat placenta pills comes months after fellow WAG Coleen Rooney revealed that she used them following the birth of third son Kit. Sharing a picture of the tablets on Twitter at the time, Coleen excitedly said: "Looking forward to starting my capsules @placentaplus1 .... Thank you xx (sic)" She further explained: "It was a friend who recommended it to me, never heard of it before."

There really are no words to describe how much I love this man! He's my soulmate ❤️❤️❤️ #love

Rebekah and Jamie - who also has a daughter, Ella, six, from a previous relationship - announced their exciting baby news in July. The couple tied the knot during a star-studded ceremony at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire in May. Discussing her new husband shortly after their nuptials, Rebekah told HELLO! Magazine: "He's not one for grand gestures, but I don't need that. He shows his love in the ways that matter, by being there for me and the kids and making me feel loved."
