Rooney's welcome another baby to the world

Wayne and Coleen Rooney have welcomed their third son into the world and the name they have chosen has come as something of a surprise.

The 30-year-old soccer star and his 29-year-old wife - who already have boys Kai, six, and Klay, two, together - welcomed baby Kit Joseph into the world earlier on Sunday and couldn't be happier.

Just last week Coleen updated her fans with the fact her baby was "too comfy" and hadn't yet been born.

The fashion designer confirmed last July she was pregnant with her third child after fans began speculating she had a baby bump in a recent image of her wearing a bikini in the Bahamas.

The fashion designer tweeted: "Baby number 3 is on the way ...... January!! We are so happy and excited."

Coleen, who married childhood sweetheart and Manchester United star Wayne in Italy in 2008, previously admitted she would love to have a little girl.

Speaking shortly after giving birth to Klay in 2013, she said: "I'd probably like another one - not too soon though.

"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."
