Rooney shares photo of third son

England footballer Wayne Rooney has shared a photo of his newborn son

The 30-year-old father already has two sons, Kai, six, and Klay, two, with wife Coleen.

The couple announced the birth of Kit on 24 January via Twitter: “Our gorgeous little boy arrived today. Kit Joseph Rooney. 8Ib 1oz. We are over the moon.”

Showing off his new baby boy, the Manchester United striker also tweeted a snap of the touching moment he first met Kit in hospital.

The picture shows Rooney looking down at the baby who has a head of blonde hair, is wrapped in a white towel and staring up at his dad.

The proud parents later shared a picture of the newborn in his car seat as they made their way home, with Coleen writing: “Welcome to the world Kit.”

The couple certainly have their hands full now.

Eldest son Kai, was born in November 2009, while second son Klay, arrived in May 2013.

Coleen and Wayne have been together for 16 years and married in 2008.

It seems they have opted to keep the name of the latest edition to the family in line with their other children, making it a hat-trick of names beginning with the letter K, much like the Kardashian clan.

Just hours after revealing his name, social media users pointed out that the initials for all three children stood at KKK and drew comparison to the ‘Ku Klux Klan’, the white supremacist organisation.

In a previous interview Coleen had described Wayne as a strict dad: “I never thought he would be like that.

“I always thought I’d be the stricter one, but he doesn’t really have no messing, but then other times, he is like a big kid with them.

The 29-year-old added: “He allows them to play football in the lounge, there is balls flying everywhere”.

During Coleen’s third pregnancy, the couple had decided not to find out the sex of the child ahead of the birth, although many wrongly guessed it would be a girl.

Wayne had previously said: “Hopefully it’s a girl, that would be nice, then we could stop then”.

It seems there may be more little Rooneys to come.
