WAG Coleen Rooney confesses the rumours are true and she's expecting first baby
Coleen Rooney has confirmed the worst kept secret of 2009, that she is indeed pregnant with her first child.
Rumours surfaced last month that the WAG was expecting with footballer hubby Wayne Rooney, after the News of the World broke the story.
Whilst friends of the 23-year-old confirmed the news, Coleen has only just confessed herself that she will have her first baby this October.
Spilling the good news, Coleen wrote in her OK! magazine column: ‘It’s true – I’m pregnant. It’s the most brilliant news and, along with marrying Wayne, the best thing that’s ever happened to me.’
And how does the Manchester United player feel about becoming a dad? ‘Wayne is over the moon and so excited,’ wrote Coleen. ‘I just know he’ll be a great father. It’s something we both wanted and we feel incredibly lucky and happy.’
On the premature speculation that Coleen was expecting she said: ‘The only sad thing is that the news leaked out before either of us or our families really wanted it to.’
‘Pregnancy is a miracle, but it’s still the early stages. I really want to be able to keep as quiet and calm as possible for the sake of our baby.’
Despite the news that the Rooney family will be expanding, the WAG insists she will keep her finger in the various pies she has created; including magazine columns, fragrance, jewellery and watches range, a fitness DVD and various advertising contracts.
She said: ‘There’s a long way to go and in the meantime I’ll be carrying on working, in between doing whatever is necessary for the pregnancy. Fingers crossed it’s going to be a wonderful year!’
