With her third child due any day now, Coleen Rooney is understandably excited. The mum-to-be took to Facebook to share a sweet photo of some baby clothes on Thursday, telling fans she was "looking forward to the surprise" of finding out whether she is having a baby boy or girl.

The image showed identical knitted jackets and hats – one pink and one blue – but many fans commented that Coleen may well have accidentally revealed the gender of her new arrival.

Not long!!!!............So excited and looking forward to the surprise!!

Coleen Rooney discussed her excitement about her new baby on social media

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that while the blue jacket still had a tag in place, the pink one didn't, leading to some suggest that Coleen knows that she is expecting a girl.

"I think pink Coleen as you've cut the tag out of the pink cardi but left it in the blue to return to the shop. Just a thought!" wrote one.

Another added: "I think you're having a little girl because it's a bit weird the way the label on the pink coat had been removed off it and you tend to remove labels so they don't irritate your newborn."

Tried to get a picture with these two all week.....nearly!!! 😍☀️⛵️

Fans have suggested that Coleen is expecting a baby sister for sons Kai and Klay

However another user claiming to be the woman who sold Coleen the coats waded into the debate to suggest that Coleen didn't know the gender of her baby.

"All the intrigue about the labels in the coats, I have just had to answer, I sold Coleen these coats and it's just how they come in, some with a label on the back others on the side," she wrote.

It is not the first time it has been suggested that Coleen and her husband Wayne Rooney are expecting a baby girl; in December the couple prompted speculation about the gender of their baby by showing off the toy Christmas elves they keep in the house to keep a watchful eye over sons Kai and Klay.

Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Cleverley!! Thanks for a great day yesterday everything was perfect!! 💍💕😍🎉

Coleen and Wayne are expecting their third child in January

The elves, named Eddie and Ernie, had a new sidekick called Emma for Christmas 2015 – something which many took as a hint that the couple's third child would be a girl.

Coleen has made no secret about her desire to welcome a daughter; speaking exclusively to HELLO! magazine in August, she admitted that a daughter "would be nice".

"I honestly don't mind," Coleen said. "But a girl would be nice to complete the family, of course."
