In February 2018 the Rooney family got even bigger as the happy couple welcomed their fourth child into the world - baby Cass!Yup. They broke their tradition with names beginning with 'K' but the little is adorable so who cares, ey?

“Wayne is determined to make sure Coleen has the best birthday ever, and really wants to show her that he’s a completely changed man,” heat’s insider says.

“Some of her past birthdays have had a bit of drama surrounding them, as well as tensions between them, because of Wayne’s behaviour. So, he’s keen to take her away for a romantic mini break, as soon as he has a clear space in the his diary, and really spoil her. He’s thinking about a trip to Dubai – just the two of them – if his schedule allows, or somewhere closer to home.”

Coleen’s past couple of birthdays have been overshadowed by tensions in her relationship with Wayne. Ever since the former England captain was caught drink-driving with party girl Laura Simpson after a night out in 2017 – while a pregnant Coleen was on holiday with their three sons – there has been constant speculation about the state of their marriage.

Even after the family relocated to America for a year, so Wayne, 34, could play for DC United, he continued to make alcohol-based blunders, and Coleen was reportedly very unhappy there.

But since moving back to the UK last summer, things have improved between the couple. We’re told Coleen is loving being back in England, as she can go out with her friends more, and she and Wayne are enjoying more date nights. They watched Lewis Capaldi perform last week.

“Wayne knows he was so lucky to be given another chance by Coleen, and he’s determined not to blow it,” our source says. “Coleen will never forget what he put her through, but they’re in a good place, and she’s not going to complain if he spoils her. She’s been dropping hints, and he knows she loves going away to hot places. He thinks that some time alone together will really help them. This time last year, they were arguing over their future – but now she feels he’s finally putting her first, and she’s loving it.”
