  • Wayne Rooney reveals his baby plans

    Wayne Rooney has revealed he wants an army of kids with new wife Coleen.

    The newlyweds are still revelling in the razzle-dazzle of last week’s glamorous Italian nuptials, but will soon be turning their attention to having children.

    ‘I’m from a big family so I like the idea of that,’ the football star told OK! magazine. ‘I’d like three or four if we could.’

    However, Coleen was a little more cautious, stating she’d like to wait until they’ve had their first child before deciding about more.

    The couple returned to Liverpool on Saturday sporting his and hers rings worth an extimated £250,000 after they tied the knot last Thursday in a lavish £5 million bash at La Caervara, a converted monastery in Santa Margherita Ligure near Genoa.

    Coleen walked down the aisle wearing her £100,000 Marchesa dress, Christian Louboutin heels and two-carat diamond stud earrings given to her by Wayne.

    The couple chose not to have hymns during the ceremony, but a gospel choir sang Amazing Grace as it got underway.

    At the altar they exchanged white gold wedding bands – made by New York’s Jacob & Co – encrusted with 18-carat diamonds.

    Coleen revealed she would now wear three bands on her wedding finger – designed to fit together to make one ring.

    She said: ‘I’ll have my wedding band, then my engagement ring, then another band, which is my wedding present from Wayne!

    ‘They all slot together so it looks like one ring.’
