Wayne and Coleen Rooney are going for a hat-trick; the couple have announced that they are expecting their third child together. "Baby number 3 is on the way…. January!! We are so happy and excited," 29-year-old Coleen told her 1.2 million Twitter followers on Wednesday evening.
At the same time her footballer husband was also sharing the happy news. "Delighted that me and @ColeenRoo have our 3rd child on the way," Wayne, 29, added.

The couple, who recently celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary, are already proud parents to two little boys – five-year-old Kai and two-year-old Klay. Coleen has made no secret of her desire to welcome a little girl into the family.
"I'd probably like another one, not too soon," she told HELLO! magazine in 2013, shortly after the arrival of Klay. "I think a girl would complete the family, but because the boys get on so well, another boy would be just as nice. But at the moment, life's good. It's busy but I'm enjoying it."

She added: "When you become a mum the first time round it makes you realise you don't get much time for yourself. But second time round it's even harder.
"Kai goes to pre-school four days a week, which is good because I get to spend time with Klay and he's quite easy. He's laid-back and happy so I can take him places and he's fine."
Coleen sparked speculation she might be expecting with this recent holiday photo
Rumours started to circulate that Coleen might be expecting when she posted a picture on her Instagram account taken on a recent family holiday to Barbados. In the photo, the brunette beauty appears to have a tiny bump, and fans were quick to speculate that Coleen and Wayne had another baby on the way – "Is there another one coming?" one follower asked, with another adding: "I think she's preggers x".
Childhood sweethearts Wayne and Coleen were married on 12 June 2008 in a lavish ceremony in Portofino, Italy. They welcomed their first child Kai in November 2009, followed by little Klay on 21 May 2013.
