Coleen Rooney has spoken for the first time about adjusting to life as a mother of four boys, who are all under the age of ten, admitting that life in the Rooney household is just like any other family home with four kids - a ‘madhouse’!
’I’m done having any more, definitely,’ Coleen revealed. ’I have always said I would like three children, so four was pushing it.’
Admitting she was never desperate for a baby girl, she added: ‘I was never obsessed with having a girl in the first place. It would’ve been nice but I’ve got the boys.’
Coleen said Kai, eight, Klay, four, and two-year-old Kit have adjusted well to the new addition to the family and are loving being big brothers – even if things are a bit hectic.
‘They love the baby, they’re constantly kissing him and asking him for cuddles. It’s a madhouse, but a good madhouse,” she explained to The Mirror.
‘A couple of weeks ago they all had their first bath together, all four of them. There was a lot of cleaning up to do afterwards. We have special moments all the time.’
The 32-year-old went on to say: ‘The only thing I am finding more difficult is the age gap, because there is less of a gap between Kit and Cass than the others, and Kit is only a baby himself. I’ve got to have ears and eyes everywhere.’
Understandably, being a mother to four children doesn’t leave much time for the gym but Coleen has admitted she’s in no rush to try and lose weight following her final pregnancy.
‘There is a lot of pressure around to have this figure, but I don’t feel pressure. I think I’m quite confident. I always want those few pounds off, but there are worse things in the world than that,’ she said.
‘A lot of the weight has come off naturally and from running around after the kids. I try to eat healthily throughout the week, but at weekends I still like having a takeaway or going out for a meal, or having a few glasses of wine.
‘I am not really strict with myself, because I think you have to enjoy life as well,’ she added.
After a tumultuous year in the headlines in 2017, Coleen is simply looking to the future with husband Wayne and their kids: ‘I want to try and continue our marriage and live as a family. I’m not saying everything is fine and forgotten about, but we’re as good as can be at this point’ she said.
