Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney and wife Coleen announce arrival of new baby… Klay

By Glen Keogh

A quirky take on a boxing great, or an homage to a secret passion for pottery?

Whatever the inspiration was behind the name of the Rooney’s latest child, it’s certain to raise a few eyebrows.

The birth of Klay Anthony Rooney was announced by his mother on her Twitter feed at 02.11am.

He weighed 7lb 11.5oz and Coleen said: “We’re all so happy and doing well.”

Klay is the Rooney’s second child, younger brother to three-year-old Kai.

It’s not yet clear whether the Rooneys are taking naming tips for their brood from the Kardashians, with their penchant for the letter ‘K’.

Nor has it been confirmed whether little Playdo will be the next addition to the clan.

Rooney, whose Manchester United future hangs in the balance, missed Sir Alex Ferguson’s last game in charge of the club against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday to be with his wife.
