Coleen Rooney shares ‘favourite Christmas pics’ as family pose in matching pyjamas
Coleen Rooney has marked the start of December by sharing some of her favourite family Christmas photos.
The 37 year old TV personality, who is married to ex Manchester United and England footballer Wayne Rooney, took to Instagram to post a picture of her, her husband and their four boys all wearing matching reindeer pyjamas as the festive period got underway. She also shared another cute snap of the family in more matching Christmas nightwear – along with a separate picture of her on the doorstep of their festively-decorated home, posing with sons Kai, 13, Klay, 10, Kit, seven, and Cass, five.
Coleen posted the pictures to promote her new autobiography My Account, which was published in November. As a caption for the post, she wrote: “Happy December everyone! We love Christmas in our house. Here’s some of my favourite Christmas pics taken from my new book #MyAccount.”
Coleen found herself thrust into the public eye in recent years thanks to her infamous 'Wagatha Christie' trial against fellow WAG Rebekah Vardy – which this year was documented in a Disney+ documentary. While that episode is covered in her autobiography, Coleen also revealed in the book that she suffered a miscarriage before welcoming her eldest child, Kai.
She described the ordeal as a “horrible experience” that left her and husband Wayne “heartbroken”. And a source told OK! that reliving the trauma has been upsetting for the couple.
“The miscarriage was very difficult for Coleen to talk about and is something she and Wayne kept very, very private,” said the source. “This has been really tough for them both.”
In her memoir, Coleen revealed how the end of her first pregnancy at just 10 weeks “knocked Wayne for six, too”. The couple are now parents to their four boys but despite the joy her sons bring her, the anguish she experienced all those years ago is still with her.
“It was so painful. Coleen and Wayne were both really affected by the miscarriage,” the source continued. “Coleen has the most wonderful family now, but it’s still difficult to talk about her loss. It was a tough time for them both.
“They were in the limelight, with all the focus on Wayne’s career. It’s been hard for Coleen to talk about what happened after all this time.”
The book also examines Coleen’s turbulent but now solid relationship with Wayne. The pair have been together since they were just 16 and they were catapulted to fame when Wayne, now 38, began playing for Everton and then England. Schoolgirl Coleen very quickly became a household name alongside her footballer boyfriend.
They tied the knot in 2008, and have weathered quite a storm since, with Coleen standing by her husband throughout numerous cheating scandals over the years.
Addressing Wayne’s most high-profile past infidelity, Coleen explained in her book why she made the decision to stick by him.
“The full story was that when he was sixteen, Wayne had visited prostitutes in a Liverpool massage parlour,” she wrote. “When Wayne sat me down and told me it was true and that the story was about to break in the national press I was confused and hurt. I couldn’t even speak to him. More than that, I felt ashamed.”
But she added: “Wayne’s a great dad. Every time he’s gone off the rails, it’s been a stupid, drunken, spur-of-the-moment thing.
“My message is, if there’s something to work at, if the love’s still there, why would you throw that away? Mistakes have happened, but I’ve always known Wayne’s loved me.”
