Coleen Rooney was born Coleen McLoughlin to bricklayer dad Tony and mum Colette in 1986. Her family are of Irish descent.

Coleen has younger brothers Joe and Anthony. Her adopted sister Rosie – who suffered from Rett syndrome – sadly passed away aged 14 in 2013.

Growing up, Coleen Rooney lived in Croxteth, Liverpool and attended Catholic girls’ school St John Bosco High School.

She was deputy head girl and achieved 10 GCSEs, including an A* in performing arts. Coleen starred in school productions of Bugsy Malone and Grease.

Coleen met footballer Wayne Rooney when she was 12 and became his girlfriend at 16. They were catapulted into the limelight when Wayne became England’s then-youngest player in 2003.

Wayne proposed with a £46,500 diamond ring a few months later, when Coleen was just 17.

However, the pair’s relationship was rocked in 2004 after Wayne admitted to visiting a brothel in 2002. He said he’d been ‘young and immature’ and Coleen managed to forgive him.

At the 2006 World Cup in Germany, Coleen earned über-WAG status while supporting Wayne alongside glamorous stars including Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole.

The couple wed in Portofino, Italy in 2008. They welcomed their first son Kai in 2009 and second boy Klay in 2013.

But their marriage was hit by more devastating claims in 2010 when it was alleged that Wayne had paid for sex while Coleen was pregnant with Kai. Once again, she stuck by her man.

Despite being married to a millionaire footballer, Coleen Rooney hasn’t always relied on Wayne’s riches.

She’s written columns for various gossip magazines and released her autobiography Welcome To My World in 2007.

She began presenting her own show Coleen’s Real Women in 2008, which looked for ordinary women to front advertising campaigns instead of models.

Her exercise DVD Coleen McLoughlin’s Brand New Body Workout became a bestseller after its release in 2005.

The pretty star has fronted fashion campaigns for George At Asda and designed clothing and swimwear collections for Littlewoods.
