Wayne and Coleen Rooney announced the arrival of their second son into the world in the early hours this morning.
The celeb couple, who are also parents to three-year-old Kai, took to their Twitter pages to announce the birth of their baby boy Klay Anthony Rooney and share a sweet snap of their family.
Wayne told his followers: “Our Beautiful Son Klay Anthony Rooney was born at 2.11am, Weighing 7Ib 11.5 oz. Both Klay and Coleen are fine….. We’re all delighted!!”
Wayne later shared a cute family photo with the caption, “My family with our new baby boy Klay”.
Coleen also hit the social media site to say: “At 2.11am our Beautiful Son …. Klay Anthony Rooney entered the world. He weighed 7Ib 11.1/2 oz We’re all so happy and doing well. X”.
The couples celeb pals, including Danielle O’Hara, Alex Gerrard, Ed Sheeran and Apprentice star Lord Sugar, sent messages of congratulations after seeing the news on Twitter.
Twitter addict Coleen seems to have taken labour in her stride, tweeting birthday wishes to a friend less than two hours before Klay was born!
TV-star-turned-fashion-designer Coleen revealed over the weekend her due date had been and gone and was rumoured to have been addmitted to hospital on Saturday.
The name Klay is an unusual spelling of the American name Clay, which is said to mean ‘mortal’, and is a shortened form of the name Clayton.
There are a barrage of American baseball players named Clay, so maybe Wayne is hoping his new son will follow in their footsteps, or at least inherit his flare for football.
Or, is it that Coleen and Wayne have been inspired by the Kardashian clan and are building their own brood with names beginning with ‘K’?
Either way, big congratulations are in order!
What do you think of the name Klay?
