Proud dad Wayne Rooney has tweeted a photo of his new son, Kit.

The Manchester United and England captain and wife Coleen welcomed their third son into the world on Sunday.

She said he was "over the moon".

The new baby weighed in at 8lb 1oz.

Rooney announced the arrival of Kit Joseph Rooney on Twitter.

He said: "Our gorgeous little boy arrived today. Kit Joseph Rooney. 8lb 1oz. We are over the moon."

And yesterday, the football star shared pictures of Kit.

He tweeted: "Meeting Kit for the first time. Home time now."

Later Coleen added: "Welcome to the world Kit."

"Thank you for the lovely messages.

"Both home & doing really well. Thank you so much to @LiverpoolWomens hospital, fantastic yet again."

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 hospital on Saturday ahead of the birth as Wayne (30) captained Manchester United at Old Trafford.
