Coleen Mary Rooney (née McLoughlin; born 3 April 1986 in Liverpool, Merseyside, England) is the wife of Manchester United and England football star Wayne Rooney. She has developed a career as a TV presenter, columnist and celebrity product endorser, and is a staple of the British tabloids.
Wayne took Coleen to the cinema to see Austin Powers 2 on their first date.
Coleen Rooney left school with 11 GCSEs, including an A* for Performing Arts. She has long harboured dreams of becoming an actress, having starred in high school productions of Bugsy Malone and Grease.
The couple, dubbed Wayleen, moved into a new £1.3m mansion in Formby. They now live in a £3.5 million mansion in Prestbury, Cheshire, complete with a cinema, gym and games room and American diner-themed kitchen. It also has seven plasma screen TVs and a £30,000 state-of-the-art security system.
Coleen has always been very supportive of Wayne, even when it was discovered that some years earlier he had visited a prostitute as widely talked about through the national press.
Their wedding took place in Portofino, Italy on 12 June 2008. The couple were paid a reported £2.5 million by Britain’s OK! magazine for the exclusive wedding information and pictures.
On 2 November 2009 Coleen gave birth to their first child, named Kai Wayne Rooney. Kai was born at the Liverpool Women’s Hospital, weighing in at 8 lbs 2ozs. Rooney and her son left the hospital at 9.30 a.m., on 3 November 2009, less than 24 hours since she gave birth.
