Proud mum Coleen Rooney wasted no time in introducing her new baby Kit to the world. The mother-of-three took to Instagram to share her delight in her new son, Kit Joseph Rooney, who she gave birth to on Sunday.
The sweet snap shows the newborn dressed in a knitted bodysuit, sound asleep in a car seat. "Welcome to the world Kit," Coleen captioned the photo.
Kit Joseph Rooney was born on 24 January
Her social media followers were quick to compliment the 29-year-old on her new arrival. "What a gorgeous baby. You must be ever so proud..little treasure," one wrote. "Congratulations what a cutie x," said another fan.
Coleen and footballer husband Wayne Rooney announced the birth to fans on Twitter. "Our gorgeous little boy arrived today. Kit Joseph Rooney. 8lbs 1oz. We are over the moon," both parents tweeted.
The doting mother has continued the tradition of giving her children a name beginning with the letter K, as she did with the older boys. Little Kit has two older brothers – Kai, six, and two-year-old Klay – who will no doubt be enjoying meeting their new brother.

The footballer has also taken to social media to show off the tiny baby boy. He uploaded an adorable snap of his third son just a few minutes after he was born. "Meeting Kit for the first time. Home time now," the 30-year-old captioned the Instagram image.
The happy couple, who have been together since they were 16, revealed their baby news back in July with simultaneous Twitter posts. "Baby number 3 is on the way…. January!! We are so happy and excited," Coleen told her 1.2 million followers, while Wayne wrote: "Delighted that me and @coleenroo have our third child on the way."
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.
