"Had scan & all checks are fine... Baby number 4 is on its way."

Coleen and Wayne, both 31, have been married since 2008 after being in a relationship since their teens.

They are parents to three sons - Kai, eight, Klay, four, and Kit, who was born in January last year.

Coleen, who has previously released clothing lines for Littlewoods and an exercise DVD, has spoken about wishing to have a girl.

In a recent interview with New magazine, she was quoted as saying: "I can imagine having a girl. I've got a massive family, so I'm around girls as well as having boys myself.

"I'm not desperate but a girl would be nice as part of the family. It's not something I'd be upset about or well on."

The couple already have three sons, Kai, seven, Klay, four, and Kit, 18 months.

Fans were quick to congratulate the couple.

Sir Bobby Charlton says Wayne Rooney is "a true great for club and country" after the striker broke his Manchester United all-time goalscoring record.

Rooney's injury time equaliser against Stoke was his 250th for United, breaking Charlton's 44-year-old record.

"I would be lying to say that I'm not disappointed to have lost the record," Charlton, who's 79, told the United website.

"However, I can honestly say that I'm delighted for Wayne. He deserves his place in the history books."

"He is a true great for club and country, and it is fitting that he is now the highest goalscorer for both United and England."

Rooney tweeted this thanks to Sir Bobby Charlton for his kind words in the dressing room and said it was a 'huge honour' to become the club's leading goalscorer.
