Well, no. Coleen tells us the REAL reason she's missing the Grand National this year

Updated Sat 11 April 2015 14.11

She’s been making bold fashion statements at the Grand National festival at Aintree, Liverpool for over a decade but Coleen Rooney isn’t attending this year – could she be pregnant with a much-longed for third baby?

Coleen, 28, tweeted her 1.2million followers, ‘Have a great races weekend everyone!! First time in 11 years I won’t be there!!! Have fun and good luck.

But with no explanation, at the time, as to why she’s not making an appearance on any day this year, her recent declaration started ringing in our ears.

‘A little girl would be nice to complete the family, but I love the boys – they’re real mummy’s boys! So if I had another boy, I’d be happy,’ Coleen told Now recently. ‘You’ve got to be grateful that you can actually have children so I don’t mind.’

Last summer Coleen, who is married to England footballer Wayne Rooney and mum to Kai, five, and Klay, who turns two next month, revealed she’s keen to have another baby so it would have come as no surprise if she was about to make a big announcement.

But Coleen has now explained the REAL reason she’s missing the Grand National this year – and it’s nothing to do with a new baby.

Coleen Tweeted Now to tell us: ‘Am on holiday, and as you know I have been the grand national 8 months pregnant, so pregnancy wouldn’t stop me.’

Indeed, in 2013 Coleen attended the races just one month before giving birth to Klay, and even managed to juggle her bump with picking up her then three-year-old son Kai so he could get a view of the horses.

She also attended Ladies Day in 2009 when she was secretly pregnant, wearing a multi-coloured Roberto Cavalli maxi dress which cunningly disguised her baby bump just before she announced she was expecting her first baby, Kai, with husband Wayne.

Coleen and Wayne are huge fans of the races and are often seen there enjoying a day out and cheering on their favourite horse.

While the bookies always take bets on what the Queen will wear, speculation over fashionista Coleen‘s style choice has built over the decade with bets being placed as to what colour she’ll pick – pink is her favourite hue!
