Klay odds offered on footie stardom and Special K ads

The birth and unusual naming of Wayne and Coleen Rooney's second son Klay has kicked off a new wave of audacious bets on the baby's future and the couple's next child.

The newborn boy is 10/1 to play in the Premier League like his father, but with far longer odds to turn out for either of his teams.

Klay is rated 50/1 with Ladbrokes to appear for Manchester United, 100/1 to play for Everton and the same odds to earn a senior England cap.

  • Kourtney 25/1
  • Karter 33/1
  • Kassius 40/1
  • Kris 40/1
  • Khloe 50/1
