Coleen expecting her second child

Coleen Rooney has announced that she is "thrilled" to be expecting her second child.

The TV presenter revealed the news on Twitter, telling her 840,000 followers that the baby is due in May.

Coleen and footballer Wayne already have a son, Kai, who was born in November 2009.

She tweeted: "A few people guessed, so news is out ha!! Me Wayne and Kai are thrilled that we are expecting a new addition to our family around May time x."

She followed the message with a second one, saying: "Its still only early but bursting with excitement! Also wanted the news to come from us, before anyone else! ??."

Manchester United and England striker Wayne has previously spoken about how fatherhood gave him a bigger kick than his football career, describing becoming a dad as the "proudest moment of my life".

He and Coleen were childhood sweethearts and got married in a lavish ceremony in June 2008 when they were both aged 22.

But their relationship has not been without his problems. Two years ago they were rocked by claims that Wayne had paid a prostitute £1,200 a time for sex while she was pregnant with Kai.

And in 2004 Wayne responded to tabloid claims that he had been to a brothel in his home city of Liverpool by admitting he had visited massage parlours and had sex with prostitutes.

A spokesman for the couple said: "Wayne, Coleen and their families are thrilled and delighted that Coleen is expecting their second child. They wanted to share the great news on their popular social networking sites and that is why Coleen tweeted the news ahead of any speculation. Everyone is thrilled for them."
