Coleen Rooney home hours after birth of son Klay

Coleen Rooney left hospital less than 12 hours after giving birth to her second son.

Manchester United star Wayne Rooney and his wife left the hospital after Mrs Rooney gave birth to Klay Anthony Rooney.

Just hours later she tweeted the good news to her one million Twitter followers, saying: “At 2.11am our Beautiful Son... Klay Anthony Rooney entered the world. He weighed 7lb 11 ½ oz. We’re all so happy and doing well. X”

Rooney also tweeted: “Both Klay and Coleen are fine... We’re all delighted!”

Mrs Rooney reportedly went into labour over the weekend, complaining on Saturday that she had experienced an uncomfortable night’s sleep.

She tweeted: “hurryupbaby Looks like its gonna be a nice day today!! Enjoy x”

Klay is the younger brother to the Rooneys’ first son, Kai, three, who was born on Nov 2, 2009.

The couple, both 27, married on Jun 12, 2008 after meeting at secondary school.

Rooney missed Manchester United’s last game of the season against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday to be with his wife.

The celebrity couple, both 27, were seen leaving Liverpool Women’s Hospital yesterday morning as Coleen carried some balloons with congratulatory messages on them.

A number of the couple’s famous friends have congratulated the second-time parents by posting messages online.

Coleen’s fellow Wag Alex Gerrard wrote: “Congratulations to @ColeenRoo and @WayneRooney on the birth of their little boy!!! Lots of luv xxxxxx”
