The new mum's got other things on her mind

Her husband Wayne may be England‘s best footballer, but under no circumstances call Coleen Rooney a WAG.

Coleen is hugely proud of Wayne, but she respects that he has a job to do in South Africa.’

‘The last thing she wants is to distract him,’ a pal who’s known her since her school days tells Now.

‘She’s grown up a heck of a lot in the past four years and her priorities have changed.

‘She was just a kid then; now she’s happily married with seven-month-old Kai to look after’

At the last World Cup in 2006 she was a bit starstruck by the WAG thing and threw herself into the lifestyle.

Since then she’s become a successful career woman with nothing to prove.

While Coleen, 24, hasn’t ruled out the prospect of visiting South Africa should England reach the final, friends say if she does, she’ll travel with family rather than a gaggle of WAGs.

‘She spends all her time with friends she’s had since she was 15,’ says Now‘s source.

‘Friends and family mean everything. To call her a WAG these days is unfair as she’s deliberately stepped back from the spotlight.

‘She’s been offered contracts worth millions in the past year, but has turned them down to give 100 per cent commitment to Kai. No one knows when, or even if, she’ll go back to work properly.’
