‘Welcome to my new Kit’: Proud father Wayne Rooney introduces newborn baby boy to the world;
Showing off his new bundle of joy on Instagram this morning, the footballer posted a picture of Kit at just a few minutes old alongside the caption: ‘Meeting Kit for the first time. Home time now.’
The 30-year-old and his wife Coleen announced the arrival of their third son – naming him Kit Joseph Rooney – on Sunday.
They both took to Twitter to announce the news, writing: ‘Our gorgeous little boy arrived today. Kit Joseph Rooney. 8Ib 1oz. We are over the moon.’
The proud parents also later shared a picture of him in his car seat as they made their way home, with Coleen writing: ‘Welcome to the world Kit.’
The day prior to Kit’s birth, Wayne had hinted that it could almost be time, as the footballer shared a poignant throwback photograph of the family, taken after the birth of their second son Klay.
The snap, taken in May 2013, showed the happy couple with their boys, including newborn Klay and their eldest son Kai.
Along with the image, shared on Thursday, the footballer added: ‘#TBT – Family picture after Klay was born. Not long left until the new addition is here! #Family.’
Ahead of the birth, Coleen tweeted on January 18 along with a couple of heart and baby emojis: ‘No baby yet!! …. Hurry up!! ….. Too comfy.’
And, earlier last week, eager father Wayne, shared another family photo, writing: ‘Not long left until our third child arrives, can’t wait to meet the new member of our family!’
