Coleen and Wayne Rooney have welcomed their fourth son, with the footballer’s wife and businesswoman announcing the news on her Twitter account early this morning.
The pair introduced their fourth baby son to the world on 15 February 2018 and fans and supporters are delighted by the news, which breaks just a day after Valentine’s Day.
The newborn joins older brothers Kai, eight, Klay, four and Kit, two.
Everton player Wayne, 32, and Liverpool-born Coleen, 31, have only recently repaired their nine year marriage, after it was sullied by cheating scandals during her pregnancy.
Three months ago, a pregnant Coleen was forced to issue a statement about the status of their marriage, saying she ‘thought it might have been at an end’.
Following months of speculation about a relationship breakdown, she set the record straight and confirmed she’d put her wedding ring back on, forgiving Wayne’s ‘selfish mistakes’.
Coleen, who opened up with candour regarding her personal life, wrote on Facebook:
I know I would be fine on my own with just me and my children, but I don’t want to live like that, I want to try and continue our marriage and live as a family, because that’s what I want to do.
I’m not saying everything is fine and forgotten about, but we are as good as can be at this point, I’m not the type of person to put a show on and say we’re all loved-up… I’m just real.
Yesterday, she even shared a Valentine’s message with ‘my Boys’, complete with heart stickers:
Happy Valentine’s Day to my Boys ?…. have a good one everybody ? pic.twitter.com/EbP9LA67VJ

Now we can assume, as the viewing public are want to do with celebrities’ private lives, things behind closed doors are a bit cheerier thanks to the arrival of a new baby.
The delighted star told fans:
So Happy to welcome our Baby Boy …. Cass Mac Rooney into the world weighing a healthy 8lb 10oz. He is beautiful.

It seems Coleen and Wayne are continuing with tradition by naming their youngest Cass Mac.
Coleen was pleased to announce he’s a ‘healthy’ baby boy, weighing 8lb 10oz, proudly adding: ‘He is beautiful’.
Coleen and Wayne ran into trouble last September when he was stopped by police for being intoxicated behind the wheel of a car with another woman, who later claimed she would have ‘slept’ with the former England footballer if they’d not been stopped in their tracks, reported the Mirror.
After accepting a two-year driving ban and 100-hours of unpaid community service, Wayne issued a public apology for his ‘unforgivable lack of judgment’.
Congratulations to Coleen, Wayne and welcome to Cass Mac!
Let’s hope it’s a new chapter for the family.
