Coleen Rooney has announced she is expecting her third child

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."
