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 today (24.01.16) and couldn't be happier.

They each tweeted: "Our gorgeous little Boy arrived today!! Kit Joseph Rooney .... 8Ib 1oz. We are all over the moon!! (sic)"

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

She posted on January 18: "No baby yet!! .... Hurry up!! ..... Too comfy (sic)"

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."
