Coleen, 29, posted a Tweet revealing that she and Wayne, 30, have named the tot Kit Joseph Rooney.

‘Our gorgeous little Boy arrived today!!’ the proud new mum wrote.

Wayne shared a similar message with his social media followers too.

Awww. We bet Coleen and Wayne’s sons Kai, 6, and Klay, 2, will be just as thrilled with their baby brother.

The Rooneys have received lots of sweet messages from fans and friends via Twitter, with actress Sheree Murphy writing: ‘congratulations lovely! 💙’

News of the baby’s arrival comes after Wayne hinted that Coleen could be close to giving birth in an Instagram message posted at the end of last week.

The Manchester United star shared a family photo and wrote: ‘#TBT – Family picture after Klay was born. Not long left until the new addition is here! #Family’

Coleen’s last Twitter activity had been on Friday when she’d reTweeted one of Wayne’s posts but we were eagerly awaiting an update on the bubba!

Despite much speculation that she’d be welcoming a girl, the doting mum said she was ‘looking forward to the surprise’ and it turns out that she’s got another boy!

Congratulations to Wayne, Coleen, Kai and Klay on the birth of baby Kit.
