It's a hat-trick of sons for football star Wayne Rooney

By Lauren Brown

Coleen and Wayne Rooney have welcomed their third son into the world.

The wife of Manchester United and England captain Wayne gave birth yesterday, the baby weighing 8lb 1oz.

Rooney announced the arrival on Twitter. He said: "Our gorgeous little boy arrived today. Kit Joseph Rooney. 8Ib 1oz. We are over the moon."

The childhood sweethearts, who married in Italy in 2008, already have two sons - Kai (6) and two-year-old Klay.

It is believed that Coleen (29) was admitted to the Liverpool Women's Hospital yesterday ahead of the birth as Wayne (30) captained Manchester United at Old Trafford.

His side lost to Southampton 1-0.

The couple had announced that Coleen was expecting in July with simultaneous tweets on their Twitter pages.

In a previous interview, Coleen told OK! Magazine they would "definitely not" find out the sex of their baby.

But she told the magazine she would "love a girl because it would complete the family". She added: "Hopefully the anticipation of the sex will make the labour go a bit quicker."
